Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Sheffield United


Paul Pogba began the first United match of Project Restart on the bench, but he was singled out for praise by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Looking at the next one, when the Red Devils host Sheffield United in a match that will be key for both sides’ European hopes, we expect the Frenchman to crack the starting lineup.

We also anticipate Swedish centre back Victor Lindelof being fit in time for this crunch clash, one that should be advantageous for the home side. Dean Henderson is ineligible to face his parent club, so United should be able to score in this one, especially when they have Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in partnership on the pitch. Let’s take a look at who else could be joining them in the first team.

Prediction: United 2, Sheffield 0

United are still undefeated, 12 matches and counting, since Fernandes moved over late in the January transfer window. The last defeat suffered came to Burnley FC back in January. However, they need to start turning more draws into wins if they are to catch and surpass Chelsea. Fernandes saved the day against Spurs, but they’ll need more to turn a single point into three.
