Pep Guardiola’s men have won seven games on the spin in the league and will be four points clear of rivals Manchester United if they can take care of the division’s bottom club, having played the same number of games, though United play again later on Saturday evening against Arsenal.
Chris Wilder’s side will be no pushovers though, having won at Old Trafford in midweek and after a dismal start to the season the Blades have strung together a run of four wins in five games in all competitions.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Manchester City vs Sheffield United is scheduled for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, January 30, 2021.
