The Premier League returns to the fold with another set of matches this weekend as Sheffield United lock horns with Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Both teams are engaged in a relegation battle at the moment and will be desperate for a victory this weekend.

Sheffield United are currently rooted to the bottom of the league table but have improved after a shockingly poor start to the season. The Blades suffered a 3-0 defeat against West Ham United in their previous game and have plenty of work to do ahead of this match.

Fulham are in 18th place in the Premier League standings at the moment and are six points away from safety. The Cottagers held Burnley to a 1-1 draw last weekend and will have to put in a robust performance on Saturday.


Fulham vs Sheffield United Head-to-Head

Sheffield United have an excellent record against Fulham and have won 30 matches out of a total of 68 games played between the two teams. Fulham have managed only 22 victories against Sheffield United and need to take it up a notch this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place last year and ended in a hard-fought 1-1 draw. Billy Sharp scored a goal on the day and will likely play a pivotal role in this fixture.
