A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United avoided a second successive third-round exit to non-league opposition as they overcame Fylde 2-1 at home having made 11 changes.
Barnet had upset the Blades last season, although Fylde – the lowest-ranked team left in the competition – made them sweat.
A 2-0 win at Millwall followed before United needed an extra-time Billy Sharp winner to see off Reading 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium.
Midfielder Ollie Norwood told the club website: “I fancy us to be honest, we’ve beaten Arsenal at home this season, we played really well that night and we deserved to win the game.
“Maybe they won’t be looking forward to coming back up here after knowing what it was like the first time, but you just don’t know what teams and players are going to be like until the action restarts.”
The Blades have seen their European hopes suffer a huge blow with a draw and two defeats in three away games at Aston Villa, Newcastle and Manchester United since returning to action.
But they have lost just two of their last 12 home games in all competitions, failing to score twice, with eight of those seeing under 2.5 goals.
