Sheffield United and West Brom have both shown flickers of life in recent Premier League fixtures but they’re facing a race against the clock to claw themselves back into the frame for survival.
Wins for Newcastle and Brighton at the weekend have piled the pressure on the bottom three, with the gap between the Seagulls and Fulham now seven points.
West Brom and Sheffield United sit further behind, and will know it’s now or never in terms of putting together a strong run of form.
The Baggies drew with Fulham at the weekend, a result that does neither side any favours, while Sheffield United’s resilient performance against Man City still ended in a defeat to nil.
They boast just 20 points between them this season, averaging that total comes to 36 points combined, a total that probably wouldn’t keep either side afloat, let alone shared between them.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v West Brom
Both sides simply need to win this one. They may both be doomed already, the likelihood is that both teams will be playing Championship football next season – if we’re being completely honest about the situation.
But a win, a precious win, could prove transformational. Sheffield United have improved in recent weeks and even picked up a couple of victories in the process.
If either side is going to step up and hit the other on the front foot, it’s the Blades. Even if they are destined for relegation, there’s still plenty of football to be played and Chris Wilder will be battling for pride – and the faintest glimmer of a near-unthinkable ‘more’.
