Sheffield United v Brighton: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

Sheffield United go in search of back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season when they face Brighton at Bramall Lane.

The Blades reignited their survival hopes with a vital 3-1 victory over relegation rivals Luton Town, leaving them seven points adrift of safety.

If they're to have any chance of preserving their Premier League status they must back it up with another win as they take on a Brighton side that have not triumphed away from home in the league since the end of November.

Despite their away form hindering their pursuit of consecutive top-six finishes, the Seagulls were victorious at Bramall Lane in January, romping to a 5-2 win over the Blades in the FA Cup.
