Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Sheffield United have one draw and four losses.

Thiago Silva opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 11th minute but Jayden Bogle made it level before halftime. Noni Madueke regained the lead for Chelsea with 20 minutes to go but in the third minute of extra time McBurnie popped up with a goal to rescue a 2 - 2 draw for Chelsea.

The trip to West London saw Sheffield United register just two shots on target. An own goal from Oliver Luke Arblaster gave Brentford the lead just after the hour mark and in extra time Frank Onyeka added another to give Brentford the 2 - 0 win.

A big game in the relegation battle saw Sheffield United host Burnley. Jacob Bruun Larsen and Lorenz Assignon gave Burnley the 2 - 0 lead at halftime but Gustavo Hamer got The Blades into the game early in the second half. However, goals from Lyle Foster and Johann Berg Gudmundsson gave Burnley the 4 - 1 win.

Bogle gave Sheffield United the lead in the 35th minute but Harry Maguire equalised for Manchester United before halftime. Ben Brereton Diaz regained the lead for The Blades five minutes into the second half, but a brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Rasmus Hojlund gave Man United the 4 - 2 win.

The last time out for Sheffield United was against Newcastle. Anel Ahmedhodzic opened the scoring for Sheffield United in the fifth minute but a brace from Alexander Isak, goals from Bruno Guimaraes and Callum Wilson and an own goal from Ben Osborn gave Newcastle the 5 - 1 win.

In their last five games in all competitions, Nottingham Forest have one win, one draw and three losses.

Callum Hudson-Odoi opened the scoring for Nottingham Forest in the ninth minute and along with Chris Wood and Morgan Gibbs-White gave Forest the 3 - 0 lead over Fulham at halftime. Tosin Adarbioyo did score for Fulham early in the second half but Forest held on for the 3 - 1 win.

However, the next time out saw Forest on the wrong side of the 3 - 1 scoreline against Tottenham. An own goal from Murillo gave Tottenham the lead in the 15th minute but Wood equalised for Forest before halftime. However, Micky van de Ven and Pedro Porro both scored in the second half to give Spurs the 3 - 1 win.

Matheus Cunha opened the scoring for Wolves in the 40th minute but Gibbs-White equalised for Forest before halftime. Danilo put Nottingham Forest ahead early in the second half but another goal from Cunha rescued a 2 - 2 draw for Wolves.

Idrissa Gueye and Dwight McNeil both scored in a controversial 2 - 0 win for Everton, with Forest bringing VAR into question after three calls against Ashley Young.

The most recent outing for Nottingham Forest was against Manchester City. Josko Gvardiol opened the scoring in the first half and Erling Haaland doubled the lead for the 2 - 0 win for Man City.

FlashPicks Prediction

The relegation of Sheffield United could either make them more dangerous or a dream fixture. Nottingham Forest are likely to win with Gibbs-White also likely to be on the scoresheet. Sheffield United 1 - 2 Nottingham Forest.
