After defeats against Wolves and Aston Villa, Sheffield United search for their first league victory since a 3-0 win over Chelsea on July 11 – dating back to last season. They've played six competitive matches since then (including EFL Cup) and lost them all. Will their poor form continue this weekend, against newly-promoted Leeds?

Marcelo Bielsa's men were embroiled in a seven-goal thriller against fellow newcomers Fulham last weekend but will want a less nervy afternoon's work at Bramall Lane this Sunday.

That could prove easier said than done, against a determined Blades side eager to end their poor run. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Sheffield United vs Leeds Betting Tips

Sunday presents a winnable fixture for both Sheffield United and Leeds, who need a result for contrasting reasons.

Chris Wilder has a near full-strength side to choose from, besides Lys Mousset (foot) and John Egan (red card suspension). Bielsa by contrast finds himself in a similar situation – though he also has new signings to bed in.

Adam Forshaw (hip) and Pablo Hernandez (groin) are sidelined until next month, but Robin Koch (£11.7m from Freiburg) has started their two league games and Diego Llorente (£18m from Real Sociedad) signed earlier this week.

Leeds have upcoming home fixtures against Manchester City, Wolves and Leicester City among their next five games, so they can't afford to drop points against winnable opposition.

Sheffield United lack confidence right now and are there for the taking, but also pose multiple threats themselves. Sander Berge, Oliver McBurnie and Oliver Burke are among those with a point to prove this season – alongside Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu, who should start here.

Sheffield United vs Leeds Correct Score Predictions

Initially, I was leaning towards a Sheffield United victory. They are solid defensively and have the home advantage this weekend, something that shouldn't be dismissed. Leeds gave Liverpool problems aplenty on MD1 and inflicted Fulham's second successive defeat last time out – so I expect they'll score.

Whether they'll win is another question entirely. I'm predicting BTTS here, in a matchup that's usually competitive between the pair.
