Sheffield United – Manchester United: Match preview
Of the new Premier League teams, Sheffield United has proven to be the toughest team, at least for now. Mentally strongest and most organized. So it’s no surprise that Sheffield is in the top home of the rankings and is, for example, ahead of Sunday’s rivals Manchester United.
Sheffield United team news:
Sheffield enters this match without a draw at home so far this season. They either win or lose matches on Bramall Lane. They have won three and lost three at this stadium this season. Be careful with bets on this match, as Sheffield will surely be motivated in this match. In the last few games they have been able to beat Burnley 3-0, Arsenal 1-0, but have lost to Liverpool 0-1.
If they can stop Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, then they can stop United from scoring. There is no doubt that Sheffield has played great in defense, but the player to mention here is John Egan. They have conceded only four goals at home this season.
Probable lineup: Moore, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens, Mousset, McGoldrick.
Manchester United team news:
There is no doubt that Manchester United has a better player, but it remains to be seen who will play in this match. The United team that beat Brighton 3-1 in the last match or the team lost to Bournemouth 1-0 in their last away game? It’s a good news that Marcus Rashford has recently scored goals while playing for England.
Hopefully he can continue that form when he leads the United attack in this match. However, depending on Rashford alone is not a good thing, as they have to function as a team and take all three points.
They have played six away games this season and have only won one. They remade twice and lost three away. In their last away game, as we mentioned, they lost to Bournemouth 1-0. They had beaten Norwich 1-3 before, while the match had been against Newcastle before and they lost 1-0. However, their away form was not very good, which must be said, and playing against Sheffield is not one of the easiest games of the season. Just ask Jurgen Klopp, who barely beat them 1-0 at the end of September.
Probable lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young, Pereira, Fred, Mata, James, Rashford, Martial
Manchester United has played very changeable this season. They have failed to make that constant in their Premier League game, both at home and away. This will be another tough game for them in which we expect them to play attacking football. Probably, Solskjaer will order his team to be patient and wait for the right moment to score that decisive goal.
Given that Sheffield United play pretty solid at home, we don’t expect a lot of goals here in this game. Only one of Sheffield’s last eight Premier League games has had two or more goals, while only one of United’s last six away games has had two or more goals. It tells us that we are not going to watch a very interesting game at this game.
