Sheffield United vs Brentford: Top free betting tips
Chris Wilder will take charge of his second game since returning to Sheffield United on Saturday when his side takes on Brentford at Bramall Lane. Our Sheffield United vs Brentford prediction is for a full-throttle encounter and for the Blades to come away with a result. The home side will be well up for it with Wilder in the dugout while Brentford do struggle away from home.
Match result prediction: Draw
Despite losing 2-0 to Liverpool on Wednesday night, Sheffield United gave a good account of themselves and could have got a goal or two themselves. The Blades will be harder to beat under Chris Wilder and he will look to make Bramall Lane a fortress. Brentford, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four away Premier League matches and aren't as comfortable on the road.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
Sheffield United may have been on the receiving end of some heavy defeats so far this season but that should all change under Chris Wilder, who built a rock-solid defence at Sheffield United during his first stint at the club. Brentford aren't as prolific in front of goal without Ivan Toney and with Bryan Mbuemo going off injured on Wednesday, they could struggle further.
Correct score prediction: Sheffield United 1-1 Brentford
No team in the Premier League has drawn more matches than Brentford so far this season and we anticipate another one on Saturday afternoon. Thomas Frank is dealing with several injury problems while some kind of new manager bounce with Chris Wilder feels almost inevitable.
Sheffield United vs Brentford team news
Sheffield United predicted lineup vs Brentford
Chris Wilder would have liked to have had a fitter squad when he took over with several first-team players out injured, including three of his preferred back five from when he was last in the Bramall Lane dugout – Basham, Baldock and Egan. Rhian Brewster is also out injured which means Cameron Archer will lead the line again for Wilder.
Foderingham – Bogle, Robinson, Ahmedhodzic, Trusty, Brooks – Souza, Hamer, McAtee – Archer, Osula
Brentford predicted lineup vs Sheffield United
Thomas Frank will now be counting down the days until Ivan Toney is back available following his gambling ban with the striker set to return in January. The man who has replaced him up top this season, Bryan Mbuemo, will likely miss this one after being forced off against Brighton with the forward joining Ajer, Collins, Henry, Hickey and Schade in the treatment room.
Flekken – Rasmussen, Pinnock, Mee, Janelt – Onyeka, Yarmolyuk, Baptiste – Ghoddos, Maupay, Wissa
Sheffield United vs Brentford: What the fans think
Blades looking forward to another home match
I'll take that. The performance was always going to be more important than the result tonight anyway.
I wasn't the biggest supporter of Wilder coming back, but to be fair to him he had us playing like a team again. Committed with a solid gameplan. Bring on Brentford. ⚔️

Bees in disbelief over Mbuemo
Disappointing result but not unexpected with most of the 1st team missing. Worked hard but lacked quality on the ball. Mbuemo will be a big miss. Classy of the Brighton fans to boo him when he was clearly injured. Thought they were better than that #brentford
