Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace Predictions 

Sheffield United have lost six of their last seven English Premier League fixtures and have nothing left to play for. Crystal Palace possess the quality to cause the Blades problems, particularly Wilfried Zaha, who is backed to score on Saturday.

  • Sheffield United have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 matches (Premier League)
  • Sheffield United have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 10 matches (Premier League)
  • Crystal Palace have seen under 2.5 goals 5 of their last 8 matches (Premier League)
  • Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha has scored 10 goals this season (Premier League)

Head to Head 

Sheffield United and Crystal Palace have won against one another 22 times each with 12 draws in 56 matches.

Sheffield United Form 

Sheffield United have endured a terrible season and are set to finish with one of the Premier League's lowest ever points totals. They currently sit 20th in the table and have already been relegated. 

They have lost six of their last seven matches against Southampton, Leicester, Leeds, Arsenal, Wolves and Tottenham, with their sole victory coming against Brighton who they beat 1-0.

Paul Heckingbottom's side's key issue is that they do not score goals, as The Blades have scored only 18 Premier League goals in 34 matches this season. 

Other than David McGoldrick, no Sheffield United has managed to score over three goals and only eight players have managed a league goal.

Sheffield United Injuries & Team News 

Chris Wilder will be without Jack O'Connell, Oliver McBurnie, Jack Robinson and Billy Sharp through injury, whilst on-loan defender Ethan Ampadu is doubtful after he missed the club's recent 4-0 defeat to Tottenham. 

Sander Burge could make his first start since December in midfield alongside Ollie Norwood and John Fleck.

Crystal Palace Form

Roy Hodgson's side have lost three in a row, but those defeats were against three of the top four in Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester City. 

Prior to those results, they achieved credible draws with Manchester United and Everton, in addition to beating a much improved West Brom 1-0.

They have never been involved in the relegation battle throughout this season and have been comfortable at mid-table. 

Palace have had a difficult run of fixtures and they possess more than enough quality to cause Sheffield United damage through the likes of Zaha, Eberechi Eze and Christian Benteke. 

Zaha has scored 10 Premier League goals this season and when he plays Palace average more points.

Crystal Palace Injuries & Team News 

Roy Hodgson is still missing third-choice goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, plus Palace will be without defensive duo Nathan Ferguson and Mamadou Sakho.

James McArthur and Connor Wickham are so doubtful, but central defender James Tomkins could return to the bench.


Crystal Palace should be too much to handle for relegated Sheffield United. Forward Wilfried Zaha is backed in the goalscorer markets, while Palace are tipped to win with a clean sheet.
