Sheff Utd against West Ham: Sutton’s predictions

Chris Sutton is predicting all 380 Premier League matches this season against a variety of guests.

Because of the winter break, the current schedule of games is spread out across two weeks. In part two of week 21, he faces singer-songwriter and Arsenal supporter JayO.

Sutton’s prediction: 1–1.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder elected not to take his squad to warmer climates during the Christmas break, and he has told his players that only hard work would bring them out of difficulties now.

The Blades are bottom of the Premier League and eight points from safety, so they have a lot of work to do.

Their schedule last month meant Wilder didn’t have much time on the training pitch with his players after taking over at the beginning of December, but he’s had a chance to do so in the previous few weeks.

It will be interesting to observe what effect it makes, especially given their situation, which requires speedy outcomes.

They are the lowest scorers in the top league, so they need goals, which is why they signed Ben Brereton Diaz on loan from Villarreal, but it will be difficult for them to break down West Ham.

The Hammers will be smarting following Tuesday’s FA Cup loss to Bristol City, although they did make a few changes for that encounter.

David Moyes, West Ham United’s manager, has spoken to the media before of Sunday’s Premier League encounter at Sheffield United.

Here are the main points from his press conference:

Moyes stated that Jarrod Bowen “is doing better,” but would not clarify whether he will be eligible for Sunday’s game.

When asked what he expects from Sheffield United, Moyes stated: “Bramall Lane always has a great atmosphere, so we know it will be a tough game.”

On Blades manager Chris Wilder, he added: “He has always done an excellent job. He has a wonderful history there, and his teams have always been extremely difficult to play against.”

He lauded Mohammed Kudus’ two goals for Ghana on Thursday, saying, “We know his qualities, and it’s great that he can show them on the big stage.”

When asked if Sheffield United’s lengthy winter break provides them an edge, Moyes replied, “It’s difficult to say. Sometimes teams who keep playing perform better. I believe we had less injuries when we played every two or three days, but we’ve had more injuries since we’ve been off.”

West Ham is interested in Manchester City’s England midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

City are ready to let Phillips depart in January after he failed to establish a regular spot under boss Pep Guardiola.

However, despite interest from multiple teams, including Newcastle and Juventus, no deal has been reached, with City’s demand for a loan fee for the former Leeds player cited as a stumbling block.

City think they are right in their approach since Phillips is still a part of Gareth Southgate’s team and is expected to attend the European Championships this summer provided he gets consistent playing time.

West Ham manager David Moyes is eager to bolster his team, which has been hampered by a series of injuries.

It has been nearly exactly a year since West Ham spent £15 million to recruit Danny Ings from Aston Villa.

The moves appeared to add up. Ings was a consistent striker, and the Hammers needed them as they struggled for survival at the bottom of the Premier League standings.

After four games without a goal, Ings’ brace in an extremely critical win against Nottingham Forest on February 25 indicated that the bedding-in stage was over and the 31-year-old would provide what he was paid for.

Unbelievably, Ings has only scored once in 36 outings since, against Gent in the Europa Conference League.

His last three performances, at Liverpool in the EFL Cup and in both FA Cup matches against Bristol City, have been absolutely unimpressive.

Wolves have been connected with Ings, and David Moyes is likely to let him depart, although salaries are a problem due to the striker’s high salary.

The argument is that Ings cannot play in West Ham’s system. But the dry run has lasted so long, and confidence must be so low, that it is now inconceivable to envision things changing.

Ings has scored goals everywhere he has gone. It is likely that he will score somewhere. His failure to do so at West Ham makes no sense.

West Ham have won their last 11 Premier League games against the team at the bottom of the standings, including a 2-0 victory against Sheffield United in the reverse meeting in September.

Sheffield United has allowed the first goal in a league-high 16 Premier League games this season, with only Tottenham (five) and Arsenal (six) conceding first less frequently than West Ham (7).

West Ham have preserved a clean sheet in their last four Premier League games, despite facing 77 shots. They last had five straight league clean sheets in 1990-91.

In 14 Premier League games under Paul Heckingbottom, they averaged 2.8 goals conceded, 19.0 shots faced, and 2.23 expected goals against (xGA) per game.

In six league games since Chris Wilder’s return, the team has dropped its statistics to 1.7 goals conceded, 13.7 shots faced, and 1.52 xGA per game.

However, Blades United have allowed a league-high 13 Premier League goals from crosses this season. Meanwhile, no player has assisted more goals from crosses this season than West Ham’s James Ward-Prowse (5).

Oli McBurnie has scored in each of his previous three home Premier League outings for Sheffield United, a club record most consecutive scoring appearances at Bramall Lane in the tournament, but has finished on the

The losing team in all three games. He is the only player in Premier League history to have accomplished this awful feat for any team.

Armando Broja could not be doing a greater job at the football club right now. The great European campaign and sixth place in the league tell you everything.

I was the one who said give Moyes a new deal, hand over the keys, and let him look after the football club because it’s in good hands. And that has not altered.

Fans must use caution when making wishes. Every manager is under pressure, but his expertise will help him get through it.

You are constantly searching for methods to improve your performance as a manager. At the top of the pitch, there are just injuries. The issue is that so many people are dying all at once.

Former West Ham winger Jobi McAnuff feels David Moyes may need to search for a “short-term fix” for his injury-plagued front line during the January transfer window.

In the absence of the injured Jarrod Bowen and Lucas Paqueta, as well as Mohammed Kudus, who is abroad at Afcon, the Hammers lacked imagination in their FA Cup third-round replay defeat to Championship club Bristol City on Tuesday.

“If I’m coming away from the game as a West Ham fan, I have genuine concerns,” McAnuff told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily.

“Without those players, is it a short-term fix to look at the loan market while Kudus is away? Bowen and Paqueta are hurt.

“We know David Moyes’ side will be tight and hard to crack.
