Foot Predictions shows the Premier League clash on Monday between West Ham United and Sheffield United, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
West Ham United host Sheffield United Monday night looking to stay in the top six of the Premier League standings.
Despite reaching the London Stadium in the last position, the visitors have won three of their last six games in the first division.
After leading Manchester United into the FA Cup overtime on Tuesday night, the West Ham coach David Moyes he would be frustrated that his team was eliminated from the competition.
However, the Scotsman will also be happy to have extra rest periods later in the campaign, something that could benefit the Hammers in their attempt to finish in the top six.
With 15 games remaining and the teams below them with fewer games, West Ham is still out of European qualification despite their recent four-game winning streak in six games.
There was disappointment in just guaranteeing a goalless draw at Fulham’s home last weekend, a result initially aggravated by the late dismissal of an important midfielder Tomas Soucek.
The annulment of that decision could be significant in the short term, with the Czech Republic international having scored three goals in the last five matches.
Despite remaining 12 points behind security, Sheffield United is currently in ninth position on the form table, highlighting that luck is finally going on the way to Chris Wilderon the side.
The Blades did not always get what they deserved this season, having always failed by a goal margin, but there are signs that they can still make a miraculous escape.
Even in the defeat to Chelsea last weekend, Sheffield United was at stake until the final whistle, almost snatching what would have been a deserved draw with the last kick of the match.
Unless West Bromwich Albion avoid losing to Manchester United on Sunday, a draw would be enough to lift Sheffield United from the bottom of the table for the first time since the first weeks of the season.
