Sheffield United are currently bottom of the league and in search of their first win, they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham on Saturday at 3pm. The Cottagers were well beaten by Chelsea on Monday Night Football, but will hope to bounce back to winning ways here.

Fulham vs Sheffield United Tips

  • Sheffield United to beat Fulham @ 9/2
  • Gus Hamer to score anytime @ 11/2

Team news

Kenny Tete is close to a return but may miss this game for the hosts, as will Tosin Adarabioyo. Meanwhile Sheffield United have a host of injuries. John Egan, John Fleck, Ben Osborn, George Baldock and Max Lowe are all out while William Osula is on his way back from his muscle issue. 

Sheffield United to beat Fulham @ 9/2

Hear me out. They may not have won a game all season, been beaten 8-0 at home by Newcastle and lost to West Ham last weekend, but Sheffield United aren’t a bad outfit. They ran Manchester City incredibly close and only lost 2-1 to Spurs, coming close to securing two impressive points. 

They will get a win at some point soon, and up against Fulham, it could well be this weekend. The Cottagers were poor against Chelsea, sloppy at the back and don’t look like a great team this term. They have only beaten Everton and Luton so far this season (both 1-0) and are clearly struggling to find their way without Aleksandar Mitrovic. 

Their attack simply lacks the same quality it had last season and there is cause for concern there. If Sheffield United get their tactics right, there’s no doubt they can win this game. The 9/2 for them to do so is incredibly generous given Fulham’s struggles. 

Gus Hamer to score anytime @ 11/2

If Sheffield United are to win, they need to find goals from somewhere. Unfortunately, their forward line hasn’t quite produced this term with Oli McBurnie and Cameron Archer attempting to form a partnership in recent weeks. Finding the correct front two should help out the team and they will gel, but for now, Hamer remains the main goalscoring threat for the Blades. 

The timing of his runs from midfield, and overall quality, has already seen him find the net twice for a side who have only scored five league goals. However, they may only need one to win this match and I fancy Hamer to get it. An away win would be the perfect tonic for Sheffield United heading into the international break.
