West Ham United will take on Sheffield United in the English Premier League this weekend and this match could be a real game-changer for both the sides.
The Hammers on one hand have lost their previous two league games, the last one being a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Everton while Sheffield United have managed to pick up a superb 1-0 victory over Arsenal this past Monday.
Both the sides are tied on 12 points each meaning the team who manages to pick up a win in this match has every chance of breaking into the top six by the start of next week.
West Ham United have seen a slump in form during recent weeks and beating Sheffield United will surely be an uphill task for Manuel Pellegrini’s side since the manager will be without the likes of Michael Antonio and Fabianski.
