Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After sharing the spoils with Fulham in the local derby, West Ham United will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Sheffield United at their Olympic Stadium. The Hammers are enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the sixth position in the standings ahead of the visit of Sheffield United, and it is no wonder bookies see them as favourites in Monday’s clash.
Since Soucek is the only first-team regular who misses the clash (suspension), home win should be considered. The Blades, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team collecting only 11 points from possible 69. The rock-bottom side must be low on confidence following a 2-1 loss to Chelsea, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling West Ham’s party in London.
