Sheffield United football club seem to be heading no other way than down below into the English  Championship, other than a very very late miracle.

Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United returned to the English top flight at the beginning of the 2019 – 2020 season after finishing the Championship season at second position, 5 points behind Championship winners of the season, Norwich Football Club.

As Sheffield United progressed into the Premier League, many felt the club would be one of the clubs to be relegated back to the Championship.

But as the season progressed, Chris Wilder’s showed some resilience, exhibiting the same kind of physicality that Stoke City was known for while they were in the Premier League.

Sheffield would go on to finish the season in the top half position of 9th position, winning 14 games, drawing 12 and losing 12 garnering a total of 54 points. Meanwhile, Norwich who had won the Championship the season before, would slip back into the Championship finishing the season rock bottom of the Premier League.

Chris Wilder’s progress was a really awesome one, despite the club ownership crisis. Yet many had thought the club would build on such progress by gaining qualification into the UEFA Europa League.

But since the beginning of this season. Sheffield have suffered a really worrying trend. Even when many thought Chris Wilder would be one of the first managers to be sacked, rather it was West Brom’s Slaven Bilic.

With Chris Wilder even speaking in an interview on 8th January, if his position in the club is being threatened, saying, “I’m Sheffield United manager. Rumours, speculation, nothing really surprises you. As far as I’m concerned, head down and on to the next game.”

Sheffield would be very excited to get their first win in 22 matches in all competitions and their very first win in this season. Though they will be sad that the said win cannot give them 3 points in the Premier League.

As they remain on 2 points with West Brom 6 points clear at 19th position. With the confidence from this victory, Sheffield would be hoping to get their first victory in the Premier League in their next game against Newcastle in the Premier League.

With Newcastle manager, Steve Bruce relishing the clash against Sheffield United in his interview, saying, “It proves how difficult the Premier League is. They took it by storm last year and this year they’ve had a tough run. They’re a very good side still and we’ll have to be at our best to beat them.”
