The Blades travel to the London Stadium to take on the Hammers for tomorrow’s 6pm Premier League kick-off.
It is a huge game for both sides but for very different reasons.
West Ham have enjoyed a wonderful campaign so far and are currently sitting in sixth spot in the table.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, are rock bottom of the table. The writing seems to be on the wall. But who knows? Two or three wins in a row could completely change the Blades’ situation.
Chris Wilder’s men need to beat the Hammers tomorrow if they are to have any chance of staying up this season, that’s for sure.
Sheffield United need to be 100 per cent on their game. West Ham are a very strong team and will be looking to jump inside the top four with a win tomorrow night.
Key Sheffield United ace a doubt for West Ham clash
The Blades may not be full strength, however.
Wilder told reporters yesterday that key man George Baldock is a doubt for the game against West Ham, as quoted by Examiner Live:
“George has trained yesterday and trains again today – if he comes through that he will be on the train to St Pancras.”
Baldock has been a key figure for Sheffield United this season. He has played in 19 of the Blades’ 23 Premier League games.
In what has been a disappointing season for Wilder’s men, the 27-year-old has been a constant driving force for his team down the right-hand flank.
And if he doesn’t play tomorrow, it will be a real blow for Sheffield United. At the same time, it will be a boost for West Ham.
