Manchester City vs. Sheffield United Match Analysis and Prediction

Top meets bottom this weekend in the Premier League as Manchester City welcome home bottom-placed Sheffield United. The match schedules for Saturday at Etihad Stadium with kickoff at 12 pm.

Pep Guardiola returned to the top of the table after thrashing West Brom 5-0 earlier this week. The Blades put on a show at Old Trafford for their second win of the season.

Earlier this season, no one doubted that Manchester City could overcome their woes to offer a title challenge race. It marks a remarkable race to return to the top of the table as spring approaches.

The Citizens have taken their spoils in their last 11 matches across all competitions, with seven coming from the Premier League. They needed no second invitation to stamp their authority on a troubled West Brom side.

The absence of Kevin De Bruyne will be felt when Pep takes on Tottenham, Liverpool, and Arsenal next month. However, the Blades trip provides a prime opportunity for the league leaders to register their sixth win and clean sheet in succession on home soil.

Chris Wilder might have taken down one Manchester giant from home this week. A win this Saturday will improve their stance on the table, albeit remaining last on the race. The side continues trailing the table and ten points adrift of safety.

Sheffield United Team News

It will be harsh to drop Jalgieka after an impressive performance against United earlier this week. However, the return of John Egan pushes him down the pecking order. It remains to see whether Kean Bryan will feature against his former club, with Max Lowe providing another option.
