West Ham United and Sheffield United prepare to face each other in a fiesty clash at the London Stadium in the seventh round of the Premier League matches.
West Ham United cruised past Lincoln City in the EFL Cup in midweek on the back of Tomas Soucek's second-half strike. The reigning Conference League champions had a scintillating start to their Premier League campaign beating Chelsea and Brighton after a draw against Bournemouth in their opening fixture.
But consecutive losses against Manchester City and Liverpool have pushed the Hammers down to the 7th spot in the Premier League as David Moyes' men would be vying to revive the form they showed in their initial games.
Sheffield United, on the other hand, are seeded at the foot of the table as they are on the hunt for their first victory in the latest edition of the Premier League. The Blades were promoted back to England's pinnacle division after a fantastic performance in the Championship last term but they failed to replicate their heroics against tougher opponents this term. The draw against Everton in their own backyard is the only point they have been able to collect this season and if Sheffield continue on this track they could become an early contender to be relegated this term.
