Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Sheffield United

Share

When Manchester United heads to Sheffield United on Sunday, it’s actually the hosts, not the visitors who reside higher up in the Premier League table. Sheffield are currently fifth, while United are seventh as we approach what will be the 94th meeting between the two sides.

The Red Devils have 44 wins in the series to the Blades 34, to go along with 15 draws. United are on a 7 game win streak in this rivalry, with the most recent meeting coming in 2016. That match was in the FA Cup tournament, and it resulted in a 1-0 win by the hosts at Old Trafford. So let’s take a look at the lineup that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might go with for this one.
