A Sunday match that will be shown live on Sky Sports from 4.30pm and, although not the most interesting fixture of the round, the points available here are no less important to the two teams involved. Man Utd has stumbled through the opening 12 rounds blowing hot and cold. Which version of the team will we see here? Here are our top Sheff Utd v Man Utd betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Sheffield United wouldn’t have thought it possible just a few years ago they would be welcoming Man Utd to town and would have a good chance of beating them, according to the pundits. The Blades have battled hard following their promotion from the Championship and head into this clash with their heads held high. They will meet Man Utd’s fire with fire.
The home team have won four of their first dozen matches, drawing five and losing three. The 17 points on the board placed them in fifth, level with Arsenal in sixth and eight points behind Man City in fourth. A top-four finish looks way beyond The Blades but there’s no reason why they can’t fight for a European place or, at least, a top-half finish. The home win is trading at 13/5 with 888sport and that’s sure to attract attention.
Back on Form
Man Utd has lost only one of their last four – the results in that time returning draw, win, lose, win. They have 16 points on the board and are one behind their hosts. Will United get the win needed here to leapfrog their opponents and edge back towards the Champions League places? That will be the aim of the visitors but they can take nothing for granted. An away win on Sunday is 5/4 top price at 10bet and that looks worthwhile.
