Blades playing for pride as they host Palace

Mid-table Crystal Palace travel north on Saturday to face already-relegated Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The Blades have conceded the opening goal in 76% of their matches and have lost 79% of their matches. Sheffield Utd have lost 71% of their home matches and they have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games. There have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 league games involving Paul Heckingbottam’s men.
