Relegated basement boys Sheffield United host a Brighton side fighting to avoid the Premier League drop on Saturday night.
The Blades have amassed just 14 points from 32 matches this season in the topflight and a run of six straight losses in recent weeks confirmed their fate back down to the Championship.

The Seagulls have fought well in recent weeks against tough opposition. Resilient performances have seen them earn goals draws against Champions League chasing Chelsea and Everton.
A victory will create a 10-point gap between them and 18th-placed Fulham with five matches left to play.
32 matches. 14 points. 4 wins. 2 draws. 26 defeats. 17 goals scored. 56 goals conceded.
It has been dismal for Sheffield United, having suffered the joint-earliest relegation in Premier League history.
What’s been most frustrating is that 16 of their 26 losses have come by a one-goal margin.
Sheffield United XI: Ramsdale, Bogle, Baldock, Egan, Bryan, Stevens, Osborn, Norwood, Fleck, Brewster, McGoldrick.
Subs: Foderingham, Mousset, Burke, Lowe, Ampadu, Jagielka, Brunt, Lundstram, Gordon.
