Sheffield United should beat Bournemouth

Ahead of the game, a number of statistics have come to light showing why the Blades are favourites for the match:

  • Sheffield United have lost just one of their nine home league games against Bournemouth (W5 D3), going down 1-0 in August 1987. They won 2-1 in their only previous Premier League home game against them.
  • The Cherries are without a win in an away Premier League game this season (D1 L4) and have shipped 17 goals, the most of any side on the road.
  • The Blades have picked up four points from their past two Premier League games, as many as in their previous 12 at this level (W1 D1 L10). They haven’t gone three games without losing since July 2020 (a run of four).
  • Sheffield United have benefited from the most own goals in the Premier League this season (three), and they have accounted for 30% of their goals. It’s already the joint-most own goals they’ve had in their favour in a campaign, along with 2019-20.
