The Red Devils are hoping to extend the unbeaten Premier League run to six games when they visit the Blades on Thursday. Have a look at our Sheffield United vs Manchester United Preview and see what we think of the match.
Sheffield United Recent Form & Team News
Sheffield United’s disastrous Premier League form continues, as they became the first side since Manchester United back in 1930/31 to lose 11+ league matches after 11 first rounds. Additionally, the Blades are the first team to win only one point or less in the same 12-match span in English Football League history since Newport County in 1970/71.
Chris Wilder’s team has a league-high 50% of their games with a draw at halftime and then losing the second 45 minutes. They also scored a league-low 0.42 goals per PL game. The only point of the campaign came at Bramall Lane, where just one of their six Premier League matches produced a 2+ goal difference, while five provided under 2.5 goals.
Player to watch: Oliver McBurnie scored Sheffield’s only PL home goal from open play this term.
Chris Wilder cannot count on Kean Bryan (calf) and Jack O’Connell (knee).
