Manchester United will make the trip to Bramall Lane for tomorrow’s Premier League clash against Sheffield United. The Red Devils were recently on a four-match winning streak in the top-flight before playing out a lacklustre 0-0 draw against Manchester City last weekend.
They are presently ninth in the Premier League table with 20 points, just five adrift of league leaders Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand. A big-margin win over the Blades could see them break into the top four, should the other results go their way.
Chris Wilder’s side were one of the surprise packages last season as they exceeded expectations and finished ninth on the table. However, nothing has gone right for them this time around and they are rooted to the bottom of the standings with just one point after 12 matches.
It has been easier to pick an online casino to play with this year than to predict which United will show up, but that’s as much of a benefit of using Online Casino Snoop as it is an indictment on United’s sine-wave form. United are definitely favourites to pick up their fifth league victory in six matches, but judging by how the current season has progressed for different clubs, they can anticipate a tricky challenge on their hands on Thursday night.
The Red Devils have been in stellar form away from home in the Premier League this season and they have accumulated the perfect tally of 15 points from their five encounters.
They are unbeaten against the Blades in the last nine games across all competitions. They have picked up eight victories and one draw during this period. The stalemate came at Bramall Lane last term where they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
The Blades seemed on course for victory after going 2-0 up shortly after the interval, but United made a stunning comeback as they scored three goals in the space of seven minutes. However, they still ended up sharing the spoils after a late equaliser from Olivier McBurnie.
Taking about comebacks, United have come from behind to win each of their five away matches this season. They looked out of sorts during the recent trip to West Ham United where they were lucky to be only 1-0 behind. Solskjaer’s side produced a superb second-half display to win 3-1.
The Red Devils have suffered a fresh injury blow with Marcos Rojo ruled out until January with a calf problem. Phil Jones is also expected to miss the game as he continues to recover from a knee surgery. Edinson Cavani has made good progress in his rehabilitation from a muscular concern, but Solskjaer has said the striker is doubtful for tomorrow’s game.
The Blades are expected to be without two of their centre-backs in Kean Bryan and Jack O’Connell. Bryan is sidelined for at least a month with a calf problem. O’Connell, on the other hand, is out for the long-term after a serious knee injury.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): David de Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial
Sheffield United (5-3-2): Aaron Ramsdale; George Baldock, Chris Basham, John Egan, Phil Jagielka, Enda Stevens; Sander Berge, Ethan Ampadu, John Fleck; Lys Mousset, David McGoldrick
United have had to do it the hard way on the road this season, having conceded the opening goal each time. Still, they have been on the winning side on each occasion and should extend the streak against the Blades, who are struggling on both ends of the pitch. The hosts have netted just five goals from 12 games.
