Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Preview, Betting tips and Prediction - Blades in the face of El Loco
Sheffield United vs Leeds United
The lunchtime kickoff on Sunday pitches two strange teams for our viewing pleasure.
One that would delight the neutrals and indeed offer something special to kick start the day.
Sheffield United lost both games they have played so far but the last against Aston Villa will hurt them more.
They went down to ten men when Egan was shown the red card but had a wild card back in.
John Lundstram stepped up to take a spot-kick but couldn’t beat Emiliano Martinez, the former Arsenal goalkeeper who keeps strengthening his credentials.
Leeds United have scored seven times this season, no team has scored as much as they have but they have conceded seven times too, only West Brom have conceded more.
In the defeat to Liverpool, Leeds announced themselves to the league as a team that is not afraid to attack.
In the win over Fulham, they maintained the same energy but left too much to be desired at the back.
With Diego Llorente arriving from Sociedad, life would be better defensively for Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds United.
The key battles will be between Rodrigo and Basham, as well as Billy Sharp and Llorente, interesting to see who blinks first,
Sheffield must avoid defeat for the sake of momentum.
The strength they showed last season has handed them a reputation they must strive to sustain.
The two managers know each other well from the Championship.
Marcelo Bielsa likes to play expansive football with a proven philosophy.
While Chris Wilder is conservative and full of confidence in his strong organization.
Betting prediction: Over 7.5 corners
