In their last four league games, West Ham have won three and drawn one. In each of the previous four meetings between these rivals, there were goals at both ends.
When West Ham United visits Sheffield United in the competition’s twenty-first round on Sunday afternoon, they will have a great opportunity to keep up their excellent Premier League play. The Hammers had won three and drawn their previous four league games, failing to score in any of those contests.
On Boxing Day, David Moyes’ team excelled even more, defeating London rivals Arsenal 2-0 away. With a goal differential of 15-49 for the season, Sheffield United have the worst offensive and defensive records in the division, making them the weakest team in the league going into this match.
After losing to direct rivals Luton Town 2-3 at home, the Blades are now solidly at the bottom of the table. With eight points separating them from the safe zone at the moment, they have one foot in the championship.
Chris Wilder’s team’s lone bright spot is West Ham’s injury woes. Besides Lucas Paqueta, Muhammad Kudus, and Nayif Aguerd, the Hammers will lose several players. Jarrod Bowen’s FA Cup first-leg injury against Bristol City also casts doubt on his availability.
