Watch Live >> Sheffield United vs West Brom Live Stream EPL 2021 FULL
In what has been a difficult 2020-21 campaign so far, performances over the last week have given Sheffield United manager Wilder hope that his side can escape from danger.
After a surprise 2-1 victory at Manchester United last Wednesday, the Blades lost their eighth top-flight match by a 1-0 scoreline on Saturday, this time to Manchester City, although after limiting the league leaders to few chances, Wilder feels that their recent performances are “something to build on.”
The Blades, who failed to win any of their first 18 matches in all competitions this season, have since won four of their last six games, including two triumphs in the FA Cup against League One opposition.
However, this slight upturn in form does not change the fact that Sheffield United remain rock bottom of the Premier League and are currently 10 points adrift of safety with 17 games left to play.
The Blades lost their last meeting with West Brom, who secured a slender 1-0 victory in November, but with Tuesday’s visitors now struggling defensively, Wilder’s men will believe that they can covert against the Baggies.
Sheffield United took advantage of Newcastle United’s woes earlier this month, with a Billy Sharp penalty securing their first league victory of the season and claiming their second home win against a struggling West Brom outfit would help in their efforts to pull off a great escape.

The Baggies came from behind to take a 2-1 lead in the second half thanks to strikes from Kyle Bartley and Matheus Pereira, but Ivan Cavaleiro‘s late header earned Scott Parker’s men a precious point at the Hawthorns.
West Brom have yet to benefit from a traditional Allardyce bounce as they remain in the drop zone, six points adrift of Brighton and Hove Albion who sit just outside the bottom three. The Baggies were in fact one point closer to survival before Slaven Bilic was sacked after their draw away at Man City in mid-December
