Sheffield United vs Southampton betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

These two teams have enjoyed comebacks against a top side before the international break. Sheffield United will be looking to get back to winning ways at home.

Southampton, only win so far came in their last outing on the road.

It’s been a decent start to the campaign for Sheffield. In their first match against one of last season’s top six, they found themselves 2-0 down at Stamford Bridge to Chelsea at half time. But, less than 50 seconds into the second period, Callum Robinson pulled one back to make it 2-1.

Then, in the 89th minute, Robinson’s cross towards Lys Mousset deflected in off Zouma for an own goal.

The Blades are now on five points after a draw at Bournemouth, a home win over Crystal Palace and then their only defeat so far, a 2-1 reverse against Leicester.

Southampton, have showed their resilient side to get a point last time out.

Manchester United took the lead at St Mary’s after just ten minutes two weeks ago and just 12 minutes into the second half, Southampton equalized through Jannik Vestergaard’s towering header.

Kevin Danso was sent off for a second bookable offence but Southampton held out for a 1-1 draw and Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side did begin this season with back-to-back defeats. That run was ended by a 2-0 win in their last away game at Brighton.
