The Blades will want to further their chances of securing continental football come the end of the season by edging out relegation-threatened Bournemouth in this fixture. A win could potentially see them leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur into fifth place.

With the likes of elite Premier League outfits such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton and Wolves hot on their tails, it is fair to say Chris Wilder’s side are currently on thin ice. They cannot afford to drop any points here to continue their push for a top-five league finish.

That said, the visiting team are no push-overs and will likely be giving Sheffield United a run for their money here. On the brink of relegation, the Cherries will be required to turn in a performance of the highest quality to have any chances of retaining their Premier League status.

Sheffield United vs Bournemouth Team News

Sheffield United won on the road the last match-day against Crystal Palace. It was a typical performance by the guests, as they registered a low-scoring, win to nil. The whole of the ninety minutes saw a single goal in total, and it was the second clean sheet in a row for the victors.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth won at home the past game week, as they registered a 2-1 score-line over Aston Villa. Far from a routine win for the Cherries, they were made to scrap really hard to see off the Villans.

After a long series of unimpressive performances, it was a welcome change for the team. However, the fact that win had come against a relegation-battler indicates that there’s still a lot to improve at the Bournemouth camp.

Going on, Sheffield have been one of the best defensive teams in the competition this season. No one really expected the squad to make such a kind of an impact, as they had just gained promotion to the top flight.

They have kept clean sheets in their last two games and did so in three of their former five games as well. In fact, the Blades have conceded a total of just two goals from their prior five match-ups.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth have seriously imploded this season. Last time around, they were a formidable team in the contest, but as of now, they are running scared to avoid relegation.

So far, they have secured a total of just 26 points from their 25 matches and have lost eight of their total twelve league fixtures on the road.

Sheffield are placed sixth in the table, and they have a serious opportunity to make it to Europe next season. The team also has the home advantage and are on a two-game winning run. They were also unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 overall fixtures, and the four losses had come against Manchester City (twice), Liverpool, and Newcastle.
