The visiting contingent are no push-overs as they have shown their credentials in the English top-flight since gaining promotion. Surely, they will give Manchester City a run for their money in this fixture.

Manchester City vs Sheffield United Team News

Manchester City left their fans heartbroken last time out, as they let a two-goal lead slip off their grasp against tricky Wolverhampton Wanderers on the road. Despite being reduced to ten men, the Citizens fired themselves ahead through the clinical Raheem Sterling.

Soon after, the England international made it two and Manchester City looked to be cruising to a very comfortable victory at the Molineux Stadium.

As you would expect, the Wanderers were not prepared to go down without a fight, especially with numerical advantage on their side. Wolves rallied around in front of the home crowd to fire three goals before the end of the game to post a 3-2 score-line on the board.

The Citizens were once again undone by this Wolves side, following the latter’s 2-0 victory over the same opponent earlier in the season. Guardiola seems to have lost his golden touch and definitely has to get his side back on track sooner rather than later.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, were held to a one-all draw by a resilient Watford side even at Bramall Lane. The club’s supporters can have no complaints about the result, given that the opposition headed into the game on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Manchester United.

For this fixture, Manchester City are considered slight favorites to secure victory. With home advantage under the belt, Pep Guardiola will be spurring his boys on to victory over seventh-placed Sheffield United.

City attackers have had their guns blazing so far this campaign, bettering every other Premier League team in terms of goals scored. Also, they have conceded the second-least number of goals in front of the home crowd of all teams in contention.

On top of that, they were unbeaten in 20 of their previous 22 home games and were so in 17 of their preceding 20 across all competitions as well.

The visiting contingent are not enjoying their best form at the moment but these cluster of players definitely know how to grind out results against the league’s elite clubs.

We have seen work wonders against the likes of Manchester United, Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. As such, they are definitely in with a shout against Pep Guardiola’s side!

Man City vs Sheffield Utd Predictions

Manchester City’s greatest mistake will be writing off this Sheffield United side. The visiting contingent have proven formidable opposition against some of the league’s elite clubs, playing some admirable football in those fixtures.

Though they have struggled recently in the league, Pep Guardiola will be wary of complacency as he looks to bounce back from his side’s narrow 3-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A draw seems befitting for both sides with goals going down both ends of the pitch. It should be a frantic encounter at the Etihad Stadium with a flurry of attacks on display from start to finish.
