Fans were left confused by the fixture list with Premier League rules stating: “Wherever possible, a club will not have more than two home or away matches in a row, and will be home and away around FA Cup ties.”

Sheffield United were quick to dispel any fears and tweeted out the correct fixture list, clarifying that the Blades will play at home to West Ham on January 11, instead of away.

The away match against West Ham United will take place on October 26 after a match at home to Arsenal.
