This is a second game between this teams , because the game is in FA Cup and the first one ended with a draw, a 1-1 on Sheffield's field. Both teams are in bad forms at this moment. Fulham have just lost against Southampton at home with an unbelieveble 0-3 and the fans are pretty upset and with a win today, Fulham's players might repair their realtionship with the fans.
Fulham is on the last place in Premier League and it's going to be a very difficult season for them. They can't afford anymore wrong steps and they must at least to maintain the 4 points distance untill the 17th place, place that would keep them in Premier League for next year too, for a few games untill they will be in a better form. They haven't won for 4 games in all competitions, their last win being a 3-0 against Norwich, also in FA Cup at home. The coach, Rene Meulensteen, have said in a lately interview that this game is very important for him and the team. It's an oportunity to win and fix the players morale and confidence, with a good prestation, for the real battle in Premier League. Since is a cup game, some of the winter transfers will most likely be put on the field today and they will try to prove to the coach that they are worth for the first 11. I believe that Fulham will be fully motivated to win today because it's a huge chance for them to win since Sheffield is a third league team and since they play in front of their crowd.
Sheffield is also a team in a lack of form. They also come after they've lost with a 3-0 and they are also on a relegation position, the 23rd from 24 posible. They have also haven't won for 4 games in all competitions and their last win was in FA Cup against Aston Villa, on Villa Park stadium. In League One, Sheffield United have won only 1 game in the away games and only scored 8 times while they conceded 24.
Beside the 2 weeks ago draw between this teams, they haven't meet since 2006-2007 season when both teams where in Premier League and when they have shared the points, 1 win Sheffield and 1 win Fulham, both teams winning their home game. Since the game is at Fulham, since the crowd will support the team because they invested in players this winter and since both teams are in bad forms and are situated on bad positions in the standings but Fulham is in Premier League while Sheffield Utd. are in League One, I have all the reasons to believe in a Fulham's win, maybe at even a 2 goals difference but because of the lack of form that Fulham's have i wouldn't risk.
