Stadium: Craven Cottage (London).
Judge: Martin Atkinson.
Fulham: Mitrovic, Carney (both injured).
Sheffield: Breg, Robinson, O’Connell (all – injury).
Fulham have slightly improved their position, but remain in the relegation zone (18th place). In the last three rounds of the Premier League, the summer residents got hold of five points, beating away Everton (2: 0) and sharing points with West Ham (0: 0) and Burnley (1: 1).
Sheffield United remain the top underdog in England. The sensational victory over Manchester United (2: 1) and the win over West Bromwich (2: 1) are just the local successes of Chris Wilder’s wards. On February 15, the blades lost to West Ham with a bang (0: 3).

The bookmakers consider the hosts to be a moderate favorite of this game. You can bet on Fulham to win at 2.27, draw is 3.26, and Sheffield United’s away success is at 3.70.
Here I would start from the home results of summer residents who haven’t won nine past home matches (five defeats and four draws). You can get a double chance at Sheffield United for 1.64. I see no reason to consider betting on handicaps in this game – a draw is a very real result in the battle of two outsiders.
This match is considered by the bookmakers as a grassroots. You can bet less than 2.5 goals on total for 1.66, more – for 2.43.
Fulham finished four previous matches on TM (2.5). Sheffield have not scored more than three goals in four of their previous five away matches.
Forecast and rate
I expect a cautious game from the teams, but I will give preference to guests. Fulham are very passive at home attacking. I bet on Sheffield United’s double chance and total under 4.5 goals per 1.80.
