It seems Sheffield United have been found out

International fixtures are trending presently with competitive club football to return next weekend. Regardless, we want to take a look at one of the Premier League clubs that have performed below expectations this season thus far, although it's still early days. Chris Wilder's Sheffield United have struggled in their four Premier League games and have lost all. They've scored just one goal and conceded 6.

The Blades, who have their eyes on a place in Europe, currently sit above the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal ...

Moyes admitted this after West Ham were denied an injury-time equalizer against Sheffield United in the Premier League on Friday night. Oli McBurnie opened the scoring for Sheffield United but the Hammers thought they had snatched a point when Robert Snodgrass managed to squeeze a low shot between a post and goalie Dean Henderson. However, their joy was cut short as VAR chalked off the ball as it had been headed against Declan Rice's arm from point-blank range by Blade's defender John Egan in the build up. The decision was right based on the new handball laws that were introduced this season. However, M...
