Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson will hope the team's woeful end-of-season run is finally ended on Saturday, when the Eagles rock up at Bramall Lane to face relegated Sheffield United.


Place have lost their last three Premier League fixtures and have managed just one win since mid-February.

Saturday sees them travel north to South Yorkshire, seeking a repeat of the controlled 2-0 victory inflicted on Sheffield United back in January – a routine result that allayed fears of Palace dropping into a relegation scrap.

United, meanwhile, come into this tie having suffered a 4-0 stuffing at the hands of another London club – Tottenham – last Sunday.

But the Blades did claim victory over Brighton in their most recent home game, and Paul Heckingbottom's men could frustrate the visitors here, despite their relegation having already been confirmed. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Sheffield United v Crystal Palace on TV and online.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Crystal Palace

With little resting on this game for either side, it could feel a little flat inside the empty Bramall Lane on Saturday.

However, the likes of Andros Townsend and Eberechi Eze should give Palace plenty of impetus to go forward in search of goals – and this could prove the key to unlocking the Blades defence.

United played more freely in the recent win over Brighton than they have done in previous games, with the pressure of relegation now off their shoulders. This could be a stodgy tie, though, with only the odd spike of creativity.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-0 Crystal Palace (7/1 at bet365)
