Fulham vs. Sheffield United – EPL, February 20, 2021

There is a huge game at Craven Cottage on Saturday as Fulham attempts to narrow the gap between the bottom three and the rest of the Premier League.

Sheffield United has also picked up a few more points recently, but Scott Parker must be thinking this is a must-win fixture.

BetOnline is not convinced by either of these two clubs’ recent performances and cannot see too much difference between them by the look of these odds. Fulham is the favorite – but only just – and any of the three-match bet options could be argued for quite easily.

Fulham vs. Sheffield United Match Preview

Although Fulham picked up another vital point at the weekend, Scott Parker will be disappointed that his side could not take all three – especially considering that Burnley was the opponent. Now the Cottagers must take all three against one of its other rivals at the wrong end of the table.

But there has been a definite improvement this year. Fulham has actually only lost three of its last 13 Premier League games. But the reason why this club is still in the bottom three is that only one of those has actually been won. Nine draws have made the table look a little better – but Fulham needs to start winning some games soon.

The same can obviously be said of Sheffield United, who most people have written off since the early months of the season. Three wins since the start of the year have provided a little bit of hope for Blades fans, but it would still seem as though Chris Wilder will be overseeing relegation back to the Championship.

Sheffield United made mistakes at both ends of the pitch in the 3-0 defeat to West Ham last weekend, and it is never going to win a game when it hands it to the opposition. It is probably far too late to save the season, but goal-scoring chances have to be taken if Sheffield United isn’t to finish completely adrift of the rest of the league.

Fulham vs. Sheffield United Betting Pick

Pick
  • Fulham to Win
    +119

Sheffield United’s players will know that it can’t afford to lose to a side that is so close to them in the league table. The point difference between these two is eight at the moment – and another three would make what already seems insurmountable even more difficult. The Blades will give it a go, but there just isn’t enough talent in the squad – and Fulham should pick up a crucial three points on Saturday.
