West Ham should be confident coming into this match, as the Hammers sit sixth in the league standings.

The Hammers have picked up victories in three of their last four matches, but they were held to a draw in their latest match in the Premier League.

West Ham boast a solid record in this fixture after winning each of their last three against the Blades without conceding a goal. Their most recent victory was picked up at the London Stadium in September, with the Hammers recording a 2-0 win. Sheffield United’s last victory against West Ham was picked up at Bramall Lane in January 2020.
