<div><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Sheffield Utd vs Southampton</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/sheffield-united-vs-southampton-fc-3840836/?mtid=1" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday 14th September at Bramall Lane</strong></a></p><h2>Sheffield Utd:</h2><p>Sheffield Utd were already playing with no fear before the <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/" target="_blank">Premier League</a> newboy’s 2-2 draw away at Chelsea. This would only have enhanced their confidence tanks.</p><p>The Blades have enthusiasm and camaraderie running through their veins. A belief of top flight survival is growing amongst the United fans. Crosses are delivered into the box at the earliest moment playing into the strengths of summer signing Oliver McBurnie. Enda Stevens and George Baldock give plenty width and combine and switch play through comfortable midfielders.</p><p>The Blades are defensively organized but can be caught isolated by a stray pass across midfield or a lapse in concentration. This team is strong in the tackle and hunt in groups at a high tempo. Good delivery from set-pieces is also essential to creating goal scoring opportunities.</p><p>Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder started his football journey and life education 33 yrs ago when he left Southampton as a teenager, reasons for his departure were self-confessed, Sloppy and taking the game for granted. This is probably why his South Yorkshire outfit don’t enter into any of these traits.</p><p><strong>Key Strengths: High Tempo and crowd</strong></p><p><strong>Key Weakness: Playing in wrong areas</strong></p><h2> </h2><h2>Southampton:</h2><p>Ralph Hasenhuttl takes his South Coast side north on the back of three encouraging performances. The Saints will fancy their chances of picking up all 3 points after the 1-1 draw against Manchester Utd in their last Premier League outing. Southampton have a good young squad with energy and flair combined with the necessary toughness in the middle of the park to compete with most sides.</p><p>Crosses and dead ball situations are major pluses from James Ward-Prowse’s right foot. Danny Ings and Che Adams are goalscorers who will both expect to get chances in what looks like being a very open and entertaining game. Kevin Danso is suspended are being sent off in the last game, Nathan Redmond remains on the sidelines, Moussa Djenepo has resumed training but is a doubt to be involved this weekend.</p><p><strong>Key Strengths: Mobility and deliveries into the box</strong></p><p><strong>Key Weakness: Being over run in wide areas</strong></p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis:</h2><p>With both teams thinking this is a great chance to gain 3 points, an end to end game is expected. United will come out of the blocks fast and hope to catch the visitors cold. Southampton must compete from the first to last whistle or risk a beating.</p><p>Both teams scoring looks on the cards as respect for each other will be low. There are very few occasions in the Premier League that when two teams meet they just go for it, in this case the prize is to high to leave anything behind.</p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Tips: Both teams to score @1.83, Both teams to score and ov2.5 @2.5</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Lines Offered: at William Hill</strong></a></p></div>
