Southampton host Sheffield United as both sides toast a hard-fought season that comes to an end on Sunday.


Saints successfully staved off relegation this summer and did so with plenty of Premier League fixtures to spare.

United had hoped to pinch a spot in Europe before a few patchy results post Project Restart, yet can still look at their first season back in the top flight with satisfaction.

Sunday’s clash could therefore have a pre-season friendly feel about it, with league position the only thing for either side to fight for.

Yet both managers will be keen to avoid defeat as eyes look towards the new Premier League season, which is only six weeks away.

On a personal note, Danny Ings has everything still to play for in the Premier League top scorers battle. He is right in contention but must be on top form here to stand a chance. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Southampton v Sheffield United game on TV and online.

Southampton v Sheffield United team news

Southampton: Sofiane Boufal and Moussa Djenepo are out for Saints, but Jan Bednarek could return from a muscle issue.

Che Adams scored only his second goal of the season last time out and could start here, while Pierre Hojbjerg is unlikely to play before the transfer window opens on Monday.

Sheffield United: Luke Freeman is the only injury doubt for United, with John Fleck and John Lundstram now back in the squad.

Fleck may earn a start here, while Billy Sharp could get the nod ahead of Oli McBurnie.

Our prediction: Southampton v Sheffield United

This may not be a thriller at St Mary’s as both managers are likely to be more concerned about injuries that could impact on next season, rather than points.

The impetus for goals - if indeed there are any - will likely come from United seeking a morale boost to end the season after two successive defeats.

With that in mind, Southampton may sit back and try to pick their opponents off on the counter. But this could well be a stodgy game under the hot July sun.

Our prediction: Southampton 0-0 Sheffield United

(Draw 0-0: 9/1 at Bet365)
