The basic Blades entertains a Hammers side under new management since their last meeting. What can Moyes achieve in his second game in charge?
Chris Wilder and his Sheff side’s last outing was not a favourable one and a fixture they went in as the second-best side. They took a trip to Anfield and were masterly outplayed by a determined Liverpool side. They met immediately after the Reds were crowned king club of the world.
The confidence was so ripe at Anfield, even the security would have scored if he was to take the pitch. However, in saying this, they kept the scoreline to 2-0, which was an amazing achievement against a team running riot on home soil.

Their visitors are busy with reconstruction after recent changers, bringing in an old foreman from the past to get them back on the blueprint they were supposed to follow at the commencement of the season.
Since the re-entry of David Moyes, gameplay plus results have been immediately affected. After a single game involved as the manager of West Ham, he has already collected three points. Other than collecting all the spoils from a single fixture, they did it in style.
A 4-0 drubbing over a struggling Bournemouth was the perfect kickstart for Moyes in his second stint as the head Hammer in the Premier League. But the reality check could come as early as tonight when they travel to Bramall Lane.
What to expect from Sheff United and West Ham
The previous meeting back in October saw the duo share the points over at the Olympic Stadium. This time there will be vast differences to consider before predicting the final outcome between the two.
The one difference, West Ham will find it tough to play the Blades at home inside Bramall Lane. Of their 10 home games played out, they’ve only let in 10 goals, while only losing four. The next factor standing against West Ham, they haven’t dropped any points against the visitors at Bramall Lane.
The Hammers have visited this venue twice and on both occasions, they left with nothing show the fans back at home. Counting against Moyes is the Hammers stat on the road. Furthermore, they are winless in their last eight outings away from London Stadium.
If anything, nothing but their last win against the Cherries stands in favour of Moyes taking all the points, or even a point. All-in-all, this is going to be a great start to Matchday 22.
