Sheffield United, sitting at the bottom of the Premier League, face a tough defensive challenge against Liverpool at Infield on Thursday. The Blades have struggled defensively this season, conceding the most goals and shots per game in the league.

On the other hand, Liverpool has been relentless in attack, averaging more shots per home game. Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, known for his goal attempts, is expected to capitalize on Liverpool’s attacking dominance. He has consistently tested opposition defenses in recent matches and scored against Sheffield United in their previous encounter.

While Liverpool’s attackers are heavily priced in the shots market, Szoboszlai offers better value for accurate attempts on goal.

Keep an eye on Brazilian midfielder Vinicius Souza, who is likely to be busy in midfield trying to break up Liverpool’s attacks. He has a track record of committing fouls, and given Liverpool’s attacking prowess, he’s expected to rack up at least two fouls during the match.


Second Leg: Chelsea vs. Manchester United at 8:15 PM

Manchester United has faced significant defensive issues this season. As highlighted by their recent match against Brentford where they conceded a staggering 31 shots. They’ve actually allowed more attempts on goal than any other Premier League team in 2024. Despite their efforts, their defensive situation seems to be worsening, with opponents consistently managing over 20 shots in six of their last seven matches.

Manager Erik ten Hag’s insistence on a high pressing game combined with a low defensive line. This game has left United vulnerable, with teams exploiting the gaps in their defense. With ten Hag unlikely to change his tactics, Chelsea is poised to capitalize on these vulnerabilities when they face United at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea recorded 32 attempts in their recent home game against Burnley and have surpassed a target of 14 shots in seven of their last 13 matches. Expect them to fire at least six shots on target against Manchester United’s vulnerable defense.

Keep an eye on Cole Palmer, who has been a standout performer for Chelsea this season. The 21-year-old has scored 13 goals and provided six assists in the league so far. He has been consistently involved in Chelsea’s attacking plays, contributing either with goals or assists in his last four domestic appearances. Palmer scored against Manchester United in their previous encounter and is likely to make an impact again. Bet on him to either score or assist at attractive odds in this match.
