Sheffield Utd – Leeds : Preview & Prediction
Sheffield United was the surprise team last year in the Premier League and was ranked for a long time at European place level, before finally finishing 9th in the English league. A very good season all the same, which allows them to play again a season in the elite. A season that started badly with a 0-2 defeat against Wolverhampton and a second against Aston Villa (1-0)) during the first two days of the championship.
Finally ! Leeds are back in the Premier League, and not with just anyone in charge. “El Loco” Marcelo Bielsa will have his first experience in PL, after his coronation in the Championship last year, and started with two absolutely magnificent matches at Anfield (4-3 defeat against the English champions) then at home ( 4-3 victory over Fulham) to start the championship.
Sheffield finished 8th (out of 20) in the Premier League at home last year with 10 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses.
Sheffield has scored 24 goals and conceded 15 in 19 home league games last year. Which made it the second best defense!
Leeds finished first (of 24) in the Championship away from home last year with 13 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses.
Leeds have scored 37 goals and conceded 21 in 23 away league games last year. Which made it the 2nd best attack as well as the 3rd best defense!
Leeds are capable of the best as well as the worst, but the squad has come back together at the start of the season, and seems to be in a phase where it offers the best. Leeds win or draw!
