West Ham v Sheffield United: match preview


Sheffield United have a thing going, LWLWL is their recent run of form so a welcome win to aid their survival campaign is coming. Confidence will be flowing after making the quarters of the Cup and Michail Antonio’s touch-and-go status further boosts Chris Wilder’s good feeling. A win and a Fulham defeat would bring them one point behind 18th, not much in the grand scheme but any progress is welcome with more than enough games left to survive. David Moyes must have an eye on Europe, a win could even take West Ham above Liverpool. The former Everton manager might find a bit of extra motivation on Monday if Leicester are victorious on Saturday afternoon. Graham Searles
