Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United Match Details
Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United kicks-off at Selhurst Park at 15.00 on Saturday 1 February.
Crystal Palace Form
Crystal Palace haven’t won since a 2-1 home win over West Ham on Boxing Day but their latest 2-0 home defeat by Southampton was their first Premier League defeat since, with the Eagles drawing their four other games against Manchester City, Arsenal, Norwich, and away at Southampton.
That means Palace have now drawn six of their last nine Premier League games, as they also drew against Brighton and Watford in mid-December.
Another key statistic for Crystal Palace you may want to consider is there have been less than 2.5 goals in 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.
Sheffield United Form
The stats tell us Sheffield United have lost three of their last five Premier League games, but those defeats came against Manchester City (twice) and Liverpool.
In the other five of their last eight Premier League matches, the Blades have beaten Brighton, West Ham, and Aston Villa, and drawn against Arsenal and Watford, suggesting they’re still worthy of their place in the top half of the Premier League table.
Apart from in their games at Anfield and the Etihad Stadium, Sheffield United remain unbeaten on their travels, winning at Brighton, Norwich, and Everton. They’ve also drawn at Arsenal, Wolves, Tottenham, West Ham, Watford, Everton, Chelsea, and Bournemouth.
Another important statistic worth considering about Sheffield United is there have been less than 2.5 goals in nine of their last 10 Premier League games.
Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United Head-To-Heads
Crystal Palace and Sheffield United have played each other just three times in Premier League history, with Palace winning both home and away when the two teams clashed in the 1992/93 season. Palace won 2-0 at home and 1-0 away, helping to relegate Sheffield United back to the Championship.
But Sheffield United turned that form around this season at Bramhall Lane, with a 1-0 win giving them the three points they currently lead Crystal Palace by.
