The Toffees are currently eighth in the table, four points behind fifth-placed Liverpool, while Sheffield United remain rooted to the bottom of the division, having picked up just 17 points during a disastrous campaign.
Everton's top-four bid all but ended on Thursday evening as they were held to a goalless draw by Aston Villa, with the result leaving them down in eighth position in the table, now eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
The Toffees are still very much in the race for the Europa League spots, though, as they sit just four points behind fifth-placed Liverpool, while the Merseyside outfit are just two points behind sixth-placed West Ham United.
Carlo Ancelotti's side have struggled for consistency throughout the campaign, winning 16 but losing 11 of their 35 matches, and they are actually now only one point clear of ninth-placed Arsenal in the table.
Everton will certainly be eyeing wins in their last two matches against Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers before finishing their 2020-21 campaign with a difficult trip to the champions Manchester City.
The Toffees have actually been excellent on their travels this term, boasting the fourth-best away record in the Premier League, but their home form has been an issue, having picked up just 19 points from 17 matches at Goodison Park.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, will already be thinking about next season, with the Blades dropping back down into the Championship, having failed to compete at this level in 2020-21.
The strugglers have only picked up 17 points from their 35 matches to sit rock bottom of the table, and they will enter this match off the back of a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend.
Paul Heckingbottom's side have the worst away record in the Premier League this season, but their sole victory on their travels did come at Old Trafford, with second-placed Manchester United on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline.
Sheffield United will be desperate to give their supporters something to be positive about in their final three matches against Everton, Newcastle United and Burnley.
The Blades have only won one of their last eight matches against Everton in all competitions, though, and suffered a 1-0 loss when the two teams locked horns in the reverse fixture back in December.
Ancelotti is also hopeful that James Rodriguez will be available to start, with the Colombia international potentially coming into a wide right position for the Toffees.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Keane, Godfrey, Digne; Rodriguez, Doucoure, Allan, Sigurdsson; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, Bryan; Baldock, Fleck, Norwood, Osborn, Stevens; McGoldrick, Brewster
We say: Everton 1-0 Sheffield United
Everton have been far from convincing at Goodison Park this season, and Sheffield United are capable of making this an uncomfortable match for the Toffees. That said, we are expecting the hosts to boost their European challenge with a narrow victory.
