Prediction

  • Sheffield United come into this game having won three of their last five in the Championship, most recently on Wednesday in a 2-1 win away to Sunderland. They overcame Premier League side Tottenham with a 1-0 win in the last round. In all competitions this season at home, they have lost four, drawn three and won the other 13.
  • Blackburn have only lost one of their last ten matches in the Championship, though only five of those were wins. They also knocked Premier League opposition out in the last round, in the form of Leicester, winning 2-1. Their form away from home in all competitions this season has been mixed, though they have only lost one of their last seven competitive matches on the road.
  • This is of course an all-Championship clash with the pair meeting twice previously already this season. United won 3-0 when these sides met back in August at Bramall Lane, though Blackburn won this meeting most recently at Ewood Park 1-0 about two weeks ago.
  • This will likely be a tight contest as a result, which United may edge with home advantage.
