Sheffield United v West Ham: match preview

·1-min read

Sheffield United have one point from eight games and have scored four goals. On the positive side, five of the seven defeats Chris Wilder’s side have suffered have been by a single goal, but unless the Blades sharpen their attacking efforts they will continue to prop up the Premier League table. While Rhian Brewster has the potential to be a future goalscoring solution he has not found it easy to adapt quickly to a step up in level, and may be taken out of the front line spotlight against West Ham.
