Sheffield United vs Bournemouth
Sunday 09 February 2020
Chris Wilder should be named manager of the season regardless of the magic of Juergen Klopp at Liverpool.
Sheffield are punching way above their weight and bolstering in the right places within budget too.
Life is awesome with the Blades, just one point behind Spurs in 5th and with a very realistic chance of sneaking into the top four especially if Chelsea continues their inconsistencies and Spurs struggle for balance.
Bournemouth have 26 points from 25 games, the last time they had the same haul from as many games they went on to finish higher than any south coast club.
Their best till date in the top flight but to be honest, life is hard for Eddie Howe and co this season.
Injuries and mother luck haven’t been kind to them, leading us to the conversation of the day, do they stand a chance against a very organized Sheffield side?
Sheffield have won four of the five between these two with Bournemouth only managing a draw, leaving the odds firmly in the Blades’ favor on Sunday at Bramall Lane.
Bournemouth, however, won their last two for the first time in a very long time.
No team in the league has as much clean sheet as much as Dean Henderson and Sheffield, and with the Cherries struggling to find the net, this might be a tough one for them.
Verdict: Sheffield to win or draw
Player to watch: Sander Berge
