Sunday afternoons game sees West Ham United travel to Bramall Lane to face struggling side Sheffield United. 

Sheffield United have had an abysmal start to the season, picking up one point from their opening eight games and sit rock bottom of the Premier League. Whereas visitors West Ham have been on a fine run of form lately and sit 12th, having already beaten sides such a Wolves, Leicester and Fulham.

In the two games that these sides faced off in last season it was the Blades who came away with the most points, picking up a 1-1 draw when they travelled to The London Stadium in October and a 1-0 win at home in January. 

But of course, this is a very different Blades team compared to this time last year, when the newly promoted team sat in sixth at this stage of last season. Manager Chris Wilder will be hoping his side can turn their fortunes around, with Wilder especially hoping his new £23million striker Rhian Brewster can be the catalyst for this. 

The Hammers however have had a magnificent start to their season, with their opening seven fixtures looking like they would be a certain bottom-three side, they have managed to get some real results from these games.

Manager David Moyes will be boosted by the rumoured return to fitness of star man Michail Antonio, who makes his return to the bench after suffering from a hamstring injury earlier this month. The Irons will be encouraged after their late winner against struggling side Fulham in their previous fixture and will be looking to make it six points from two games in this game.
