Chris Wilder’s men were tactically aware from the get go. Keeping games tight will be the Blades forte this season. Do not expect them to be involved in shoot-outs. Team spirit and organization are paramount to the South Yorkshire outfits survival in the Premier League. This is Sheffield Utd’s first home game since gaining promotion from the Championship, you can rest assure that a carnival atmosphere at Bramall Lane will await the visitors Crystal Palace.</p><p><strong>KEY Strength: Organisation and Patience</strong></p><p><strong>KEY Weakness: Over committing in Attack</strong></p><p> </p><h2>Crystal Palace:</h2><p>Crystal Palace come into this tough game away at Premier League new boys with plenty questions to answer. Will this be where want away star Wilfred Zaha shines?. He needs to inspire his team-mates to a much needed positive performance. Last weekend a clean sheet at home to Everton was a plus considering the departure of Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The influence Wan-Bissaka had going forward is going to need to be replaced and quickly.</p><p><strong>Key Strength: Zaha in 1v1 situations</strong></p><p><strong>KEY Weakness: Allowing Sheff utd to dominate</strong></p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis:</h2><p>Sheffield Utd and Crystal Palace both picked up a point last week in their respective opening games. In this match-up I don’t see any quarter asked or given. A very tight affair is very much on the cards. Sheffield Utd will not want to be drawn into a Basketball style match,that would leave them open to the classic Crystal Palace counter attack. Neither of these teams top goal scorers at the end of the season will be near the top. Close Cagey and hard fought are all words that spring to mind when looking into the betting angles of this intriguing tie.</p><p><strong>TIPS: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">U1.5 Goals @3 Bet365 0-0 @8 Bet365</a></strong></p></div>
