Sheffield United vs Manchester City Match Preview

Manchester City’s misfiring season suffered another hiccup at the weekend – and they are unlikely to find things easy when they visit Bramall Lane.

Liverpool are now out of City’s sight in the Premier League title race, the leaders over the horizon after Pep Guardiola’s side were held to a 2-2 home draw against Crystal Palace.

The reigning champions were architects of their own downfall as, having overturned a 1-0 deficit with a late Sergio Aguero double, they conceded a stoppage-time equaliser when Fernandinho turned Wilfried Zaha’s cross into his own net under pressure from Connor Wickham.

Despite winning 2-0 at home to Sheffield United between Christmas and New Year, City will expect a difficult time when they cross the Pennines into South Yorkshire for the reverse fixture given how strong the Blades are defensively (see stats above).

Chris Wilder’s side came through another tough assignment with a 1-1 draw away to Arsenal at the weekend when they were full value for their point, and results of the clubs around them in the table did them no harm either with United still riding high in a superb seventh position.

Such has been the progress of the team from the Steel City that it would be no great surprise if they held or even beat City here. We think they may just be edged out, but will keep United on our side to do no worse than suffer a narrow defeat against the surely soon-to-be former Premier League title-holders.
