Sheffield United will host Millwall at Bramall Lane on Saturday in the EFL Championship, looking to recover from their opening day loss.

The Blades were beaten 1-0 by Watford on Tuesday, thanks to Joao Pedro's second-half winner. It was a repeat of their 2021-22 season, which started with an identical loss to Birmingham City.

Millwall, meanwhile, endured no upset on the first day, seeing off Stoke City 2-0 at home. However, they were knocked out of the EFL Cup following a 1-0 loss to Cambridge United.

Sheffield United vs Millwall Prediction

The Blades are blighted by a spate of injuries but have some good options in attack to cause Millwall problems. The Lions are no pushovers themselves and will be encouraged by their opening day victory to continue in the same vein. The two teams could cancel each other out.

Prediction: Sheffield United 1-1 Millwall.
