Sheffield United vs Brighton Match Preview

Sheffield United’s remarkable bid for European football during their first season back in the top flight, perhaps even Champions League qualification, is gaining strength all the time – and they can boost their claims further against Brighton.

A combination of factors is helping the Blades in the quest to turn their European dream into reality. Not only does their own form continue to be superb but other teams are opening the door for them by suffering bad results – and Manchester City’s ban from UEFA competitions, unless it is overturned on appeal, frees up another place for next season.

Chris Wilder’s side are sixth in the table, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, they have eased into the fifth round of the FA Cup and are actually looking more stable than most of the rivals around them, both in terms of form and the consistency of their team selection.

Defensively solid, United have won three in a row in the league and cup and Evens looks a fair price for them to beat Brighton, who are part of the relegation battle in 15th position and in danger of being pulled deeper into the mire.

The Seagulls are winless in seven and keeping clean sheets has been a problem, only one in their last 16 games, while they have conceded three goals in each of their latest two matches on the road.

There appears little to suggest this fixture will be anything other than business as usual for Sheffield United and they are backed to push themselves closer to Europe with another win.
