Mark Lawrenson and Michael Owen have given their prediction for the Sheffield United v West Brom clash today and it’s goods news for the Blades if they come true.
The Blades travel to the Hawthorns looking for their first win of the season, while Slaven Bilic’s men are also in the same boat.
It is, then, a must-win game for both sides in what is set to be an entertaining Saturday evening clash.
Owen and Lawrenson, as they do most weeks, have been giving their thoughts on the game and both believe the Blades will take something from the game.
“I think they’ve (Sheffield Utd) been unlucky at times so far and reckon that their strength in depth should be enough to get them over the line here,” Owen said.
“I covered West Brom’s match against Fulham and the Baggies didn’t look comfortable at all. So, I’ll be going for a Sheffield United win, and their first 3 points of the season.”
Lawrenson, meanwhile, sat on the fence a bit more with his call and believes a 1-1 draw will be the outcome.
“The Baggies and the Blades are also the only sides yet to win in the top flight this season, and both of them have no doubt earmarked this game as a big chance to put that right. Things don’t always work out like that, though, which is why I am going for another draw”, Lawro told the BBC.
United boss Chris Wilder has Lys Mousset back in contention to start or play some part, while John Fleck is also fit again after returning last weekend.
Enda Stevens, meanwhile, could miss out after sitting out the clash with West Ham last weekend.
