A 0-0 draw with Chelsea in midweek was a timely boost for boss Graham Potter, whose troops also held Everton to a goalless tie in their previous outing.  

Sheffield United, meanwhile, had their relegation confirmed last week and are unlikely to offer much resistance here.

The Blades have lost six on the bounce and have managed just one goal since Paul Heckingbottom replaced Chris Wilder as manager. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Sheffield United v Brighton on TV and online.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Brighton

With the Blades already down, one would assume Brighton would take swift control of this game. But that might not be the case.

Brighton don’t exactly need to step up the intensity here and so may take their time feeling out United – something that other teams have done recently.

Patience has appeared to be the obvious key to unlocking the Blades defence all season. Don’t expect fireworks from the start but Brighton should win out eventually.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Brighton (7/1 at bet365)
