Sheffield United will host Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday with both sides looking for their first points of the season.
Bramall Lane is set to witness an important clash for both teams, who have lost their opening four league games of the season, and have a few problems.
After a great first season back in the Premier League last time, Sheffield United have struggled to get going this season, scoring only one goal in their first four games. They haven’t been helped by injury worries, and will hope that their new signings can integrate with the squad soon to alleviate some of those concerns.
For Fulham, their first season back is not going to plan so far, with 11 goals conceded in four games, and having scored only in one game – a 4-3 loss to Leeds United.
Scott Parker’s side have had reinforcements made during the transfer window, and the Englishman will be hoping that galvanises them. If not, a long and painful season could await for the Whites.
