Leeds vs Sheffield Utd Prediction & Tips
Leeds United ended a three-match winless streak (E1, P2) in the Premier League (PL) against Fulham just before the FIFA date break and must be confident of building a positive streak after that result. Not being able to score in four of his last six PL meetings has been a problem, but he did record four of his five goals in that streak during the second half, so a slow start might not be a big deal.
The issue of goals after the break has been a prominent issue for Marcelo Bielsa’s team, especially at home. In particular, Leeds have scored 68.42% of their home goals so far during the second half. The period between 46 and 60 minutes has proven to be the most fruitful on Elland Road, as Leeds have scored seven times in this period without conceding any goals against.
Sheffield United appear to be destined for relegation and have suffered six defeats in their last seven PL matches (W1, P6). It is not just points, but also goals that have been absent this campaign – he has scored just one goal in his last six league games. As expected, the “Blades” also have the division’s worst goal average (0.55 per game).

There’s no way to sweeten the visitor’s woeful away record this season (W1, E1, P12), but it’s worth noting that seven of those 12 losses came by a margin of just one goal. He can probably also be more comfortable with having a decent match-up record against Leeds, winning four of the last six games between the two (G4, P2).
Players to watch: Raphinha has scored four PL goals so far in 2021 and each of the last three was Leeds’ last in that respective match. Meanwhile, David McGoldrick has contributed directly to 43.75% of all Sheffield United goals in PL and was the scorer of his team’s most recent goal.
Highlight: Leeds have conceded 11 PL goals from corner kicks this season – three more than any other team.
