Sheffield United vs Brentford Prediction and Betting Tips | December 9th 2023 

Sheffield United v Liverpool FC - Premier League
Sheffield United will host Brentford - Premier League

Sheffield United will host Brentford at Bramall Lane on Saturday in another round of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign.

The home side have failed to adapt to life in the English top flight and currently find themselves in the drop zone. They were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in their last match, conceding late in either half as they fell to a sixth consecutive defeat at the hands of the Merseyside outfit.

Sheffield sit rock-bottom in the league table with five points from 15 games. They will be looking to begin picking up important points this weekend and kick-start their push for survival.

Brentford have also struggled for results in the Premier League of late and now sit in the bottom-half of the pile. They were beaten 2-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion in their last match, taking the lead from the spot midway through the first half via a Bryan Mbeumo strike before their opponents came from behind to claim the win in the second.

The visitors sit 11th in the table with 19 points from 15 games. They will be looking to shake off their latest results and return to winning ways this weekend.
