Brighton & Hove Albion host surprise package Sheffield United in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It’s been a fantastic start to the season for both sides, particularly for top tier new boys Sheffield United who have been led to seventh position in the table by manager Chris Wilder after 17 matches.
Brighton & Hove Albion will be home for the holidays to greet Sheffield United at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday at American Express Community Stadium. Brighton has kept their last four contests to within one goal, so Sheffield should be prepared for a fight.
Brighton and Crystal Palace ended up with a point apiece after a 1-1 draw.
Meanwhile, Sheffield got themselves on the board against Aston Villa on Saturday, but Villa never followed suit. The Blades escaped their match against Villa unscathed, winning 2-0. The score was all tied up at the break nothing to nothing, but the Blades were the better team in the second half.
After their draw, Brighton will be looking to earn the full three points in this match. We’ll see if Sheffield is willing to oblige them.
