SHF vs EVE Match Update: Sheffield United and Everton will face each other in the fourth round of the Premier League on Saturday, September 2, 2023 at Bramall Lane. Both teams are looking for their first win of the season after disappointing starts.
Sheffield United: Can they bounce back from the Leicester defeat?
The Blades are currently in the 15th position in the table with one point from three games. They drew 1-1 with Southampton in their opening game, but lost 2-0 to Manchester City and Leicester City in their next two matches. They have scored only one goal and conceded five so far.
The manager, Chris Wilder, will be hoping to get a positive result against Everton and boost his team’s confidence. He will be relying on his star striker, Rhian Brewster, who scored 15 goals last season, to find his form and lead the attack. He will also be hoping that his new signings, such as Harry Wilson and Ben Davies, can make an impact.
Everton: Can they end their losing streak?
The Toffees are in a worse situation than Sheffield United, as they are bottom of the table with zero points from three games. They have lost 3-0 to Liverpool, 2-0 to Chelsea and 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur in their first three matches. They have scored only two goals and conceded seven so far.
The manager, Carlo Ancelotti, will be under pressure to turn things around and get his team out of the relegation zone. He will be missing some key players due to injuries, such as Seamus Coleman, Alex Iwobi, Dele Alli and Jack Harrison. He will be hoping that his star players, such as Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez, can step up and deliver.
What to expect from the match?
The match between Sheffield United and Everton is expected to be a close and competitive one, as both teams are desperate for points. The last time they met in the Premier League was on July 20, 2020, when Everton won 1-0 at Bramall Lane thanks to a goal from Richarlison.
The head-to-head record between the two teams is fairly balanced, with Sheffield United winning 10 times, Everton winning nine times and six draws in their previous 25 meetings. However, Everton have a slight edge over Sheffield United in their recent encounters, as they have won three of their last five matches against them.
The match will kick off at 5:00 PM IST on Saturday, September 2, 2023. The fans can watch the live telecast of the match on FanCode, or follow the live updates on sports websites such as Experts Prime Team or India Fantasy.
