Team News

Palace will have to deal with the absence of Cenk Tosun, who picked up a hamstring injury against Southampton.

However, Andros Townsend, Christian Benteke, Patrick van Aanholt and Joel Ward are all back in first team training, while Luka Milivojevic is available again after serving a suspension. Mamadou Sakho and Jeffrey Schlupp remain out.

The Blades have a near fully fit squad with striker David McGoldrick a doubt but still expected to be named on the substitutes bench.

Predicted Lineups 

Crystal Palace Guaita; Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, Riedewald; McArthur, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McCarthy, Zaha; Ayew.
Sheffield United Henderson, Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McBurnie, Mousset.

Head to Head Record

These two sides have faced each other 54 times in the past, dating all the way back to 1959. Palace have won 21 times in this fixture, but have also lost 21 matches - with the remaining 12 ending in draws.

Recent Form 

Both teams have had a bit of a mixed patch, with Palace struggling to get a win but gaining impressive draws against Manchester City and Arsenal.

New signing Tosun scored a header against City on his debut before a late own goal helped the Eagles pick up a point at the Etihad.


Sheffield United also picked up a 1-1 draw against Arsenal but failed to nick one off City despite Dean Henderson's penalty save. However, they have managed more straightforward victories over Millwall, West Ham, and AFC Fylde in recent weeks.

Crystal Palace Sheffield United
​Crystal Palace 0-2 Southampton (21/1) ​Millwall 0-2 Sheffield United (25/1)
​Manchester City 2-2 Crystal Palace (18/1) ​Sheffield United 0-1 Manchester City (21/1)
​Crystal Palace 1-1 Arsenal (11/1) Arsenal 1-1 ​Sheffield United (18/1)
​Crystal Palace 0-1 Derby (5/1) ​Sheffield United 1-0 West Ham (10/1)
​Norwich 1-1 Crystal Palace (1/1) ​Sheffield United 2-1 Fylde (5/1)


Neither team are known for their goalscoring antics and are quite defensive-minded, so this will likely be a low scoring game.

The game could be settled by a moment of magic or a mi and the attackers on both sides will have to be at their best as chances will be at a minimum. Expect a tightly fought affair.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Sheffield United
