It's fair to say that neither Sheffield Utd nor Luton Town has found it easy to adapt to life in the EPL. The two promoted clubs are in the relegation zone heading into their Boxing Day showdown at Bramall Lane, with just a handful of wins between them. They were among the strongest sides in the Championship last season, but a lack of proven top-flight quality has left the duo in a vulnerable position.

Sheffield Utd will hope home advantage gets them over the line in what both sides will consider a must-win game. They will likely line up in the 4-1-4-1 formation that Chris Wilder has favored in the first few matches of his second spell in charge. The Blades will look to get forward quickly, but this could be a rare game in which their opponents are happy to leave them with the ball.

Luton are not overly concerned with possession. Their strategy on Tuesday will be to make their attacks out wide and swing in crosses. They are a physical team and Sheffield Utd will have to match them for pace and power. Ross Barkley provides a dash of quality in the center of the park, so Wilder may look to put a player on him at all times.
