West Ham United vs Sheffield United

, KO: 15:00 Sep 30, 2023, London Stadium
Sheffield United

West Ham are looking to bounce back from a defeat to Liverpool as they host Sheffield United in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Sheffield are yet to claim a single win across all competitions this season and should struggle against a solid Hammers side.

West Ham suffered a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in their previous Premier League fixture. They went into the break level after Jarrod Bowen canceled the Reds’ early effort but were outclassed in the second half and conceded twice.

That result means West Ham have now lost their last two Premier League matches, although manager David Moyes will not be overly pressed about defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City. They did bounce back in their midweek Carabao Cup fixture with Tomas Soucek’s second half effort giving them a 1-0 victory over Luton Town.

One thing that will give West Ham confidence of getting things back on track is their home form having won two of their last three matches at the London Stadium. However, a slight problem is their defensive vulnerability having failed to keep a single clean sheet in the Premier League this season.

Like the other newly promoted sides, Sheffield United have also found it difficult adapting to life in the Premier League. They are without a single win across all competitions this season and are currently rooted to the foot of the table.

Sheffield United travel to West Ham off the back of a disappointing home defeat as they were beaten 8-0 by Newcastle United last time out. They were second best in all departments and could only muster a single attempt on target throughout the contest.

The result means Sheffield United now have the worst defensive record in the Premier League having conceded 17 goals in just six matches. Paul Heckingbottom’s men have also last their last two fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it

West Ham have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 4/9 with Paddy Power. An unlikely victory for Sheffield United is valued at 6/1 by bet365 while Unibet is offering odds of 18/5 for a draw.

Head to head

West Ham did the double over Sheffield United the last time both teams met in the Premier League during the 2020-21 season. They claimed a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane before running out 3-0 winners at the London Stadium.

Players to watch

Jarrod Bowen is enjoying a superb start to the season and has found the net four times in six Premier League matches. The forward is priced at 12/5 by William Hill to get on the score sheet on Saturday.

Sheffield United will be keen to take advantage of West Ham’s defensive vulnerability and Cameron Archer could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward often troubles defenders with his pace and movement and is priced at 7/2 by bet365 to find the net on Saturday.

Anything else catch the eye?

West Ham have seen over 3.5 goals in three of their last four matches across all competitions and a repeat is priced at 33/20 with Unibet. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/6 with bet365, who is also offering odds of 10/11 on both teams to score.

The Hammers are priced at minimal odds for a straight victory so a win and over 2.5 goals should offer more value 23/20 with BoyleSports.
