Sheffield United vs. Birmingham, Championship, 07.08.2021

The new Championship season is here and Sheffield United will be looking to make an immediate return to the Premier League after being relegated from there last season. For Birmingham, it will take a major improved performance from their 18th position finish last season to make it out of the Championship.

The opening game is usually very important as it may set the pace for the team’s performances in the new season. A win here for either team will act as a morale booster for starting the season strongly.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

Sheffield United finished last in the Premier League last season and their relegation was confirmed with 6 games still to go. This was a harsh outcome for a team that had played some decent football at times. The Championship can also be a tough place so they have to give their best performances.

Sheffield United will be counting on their striking force of Rhian Brewster, Oli McBurnie and David McGoldrick to carry them through the Championship. They may not have delivered a lot in the Premier League but they are proven at this level.

BIRMINGHAM

Birmingham have been stuck in the Championship for the last 10 seasons and will need huge performances if they are to dream of making a return to the Premier League. Opening the season with a win will certainly help towards such belief.

Manager Lee Bowyer is starting his full league campaign as Birmingham manager and has a lot to prove. He has to get the team winning again consistently as the pre-season friendlies have not been impressive enough. Just one win in four games.
