Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a 2-0 loss to Chelsea in the London derby, Fulham will look to get back on course in the Premier League when they face Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon. The Cottagers have been struggling up front ever since key attacker Aleksandar Mitrovic left the club, with the team scoring no more than five goals in the process, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Both Adama Traore and Tosin Adarabioyo are out of contention with injuries, while Kenny Tete is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The Blades, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point in total from possible 21. The rock-bottom side have suffered a loss in each of their first three away games of the process, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team.
