3 things we expect to see in the Swansea v Sheffield United match today

Published

on

Swansea City host automatic promotion chasing Sheffield United at the Liberty Stadium today.

The Swans enter the game in 13th place in the table, looking for a bit of consistency in the second half of the season.

Graham Potter’s time at the club has been slightly indifferent, but with time, Swansea could start to climb the table.

As for Sheffield United, the dream of promotion becomes a little more possible each week.

The Blades are showing no signs of faltering in the final months, which they did last season, and they look like real candidates for a Premier League spot.

A win at Swansea would further affirm their aspirations.

Here, we look at THREE things to look out for in this big clash today.

Sheffield United coming out the traps early

Sheffield United players will be brimming with confidence and will want to keep going from match to match, and slowly close in on promotion.

For this reason, we’d expect the Blades to come out the traps quite early in this one and throw everything forward to try and get an early goal to settle any nerves.

Goals

In most Sheffield United games, there are a lot of goals. They are an attacking side and you would expect that this game will see a lot of chances for both sides.

For Swansea, you are never quite sure what you will get, so this could be another reason why a goal-fest could be expected.

Star striker Oli McBurnie is expected to return for Swansea, which is a huge boost for them in front of goal.

Relatively unchanged Blades side

Chris Wilder is likely to name a relatively unchanged side to that who beat QPR to go second in the Championship last weekend.

Striker Billy Sharp has found the net with each of his last three shots on target, and the joint-top scorer will be expected to carry on leading the line.

New signing Gary Madine may start on the bench on his return to Wales, but it is unlikely he will feature from the start.
