Sheffield Utd 1-1 Fulham
Date: 18.10.2020 | Match at: 12:00 | League: ENGLAND: Premier League – Round 5 | Tip: Over 1.5 Goals | Odds: 1.44 | Bookie: Unibet
- As a result of their winless start, Sheffield United have now lost seven consecutive league matches for only the second time in their history, with their other seven-game losing run ending back in September 1975! They were rarely rolled over during that recent run though, conceding under 2.5 goals in six of the seven matches.
- Given that the ‘Blades’ aren’t conceding many goals, but also not winning, it’s pretty clear that their attack is the issue. Sure enough, they have scored just one Premier League (PL) goal so far this season – the division’s lowest return – and their average of 2.3 shots on target per game is the joint second-lowest in the PL too.
- It hasn’t been a great PL return for Fulham who have lost each of their opening four top-flight matches for only the second time, and the first occasion since 1951/52. Across that sequence they conceded 11 goals, which is their most after four games of a new season for 60 years! Additionally, ten of those 11 goals arrived in the opening 15 minutes of either half.
- The ‘Cottagers’ can take some comfort in the fact they have avoided defeat in their previous five competitive H2Hs with Sheffield United (W3, D2). They netted 3+ goals in each of the previous three, and scored between the 60th and 74th minute in those three encounters too.
- Players to watch: Whilst goals have been at a premium, Sheffield United’s David McGoldrick has scored each of his side’s two competitive strikes this season.
- Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrović has scored three competitive goals already this season, and netted two first-half goals in his one and only appearance vs Sheffield United back in 2018.
- Hot stat: Fulham scored more goals from outside the box (17) than any other side in their division last season.
