Manchester United vs Sheffield Utd: Premier League – LIVE!

Man United will be aiming to retake top spot in the Premier League when they welcome bottom-of-the-pile Sheffield United to Old Trafford tonight.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils have been in superb form, with Sunday’s thrilling 3-2 FA Cup win over Liverpool suggesting this United side could potentially be the real deal.

Unfortunately for United, Man City easily won their game in hand 5-0 at West Brom last night to go top of the table and lay down an ominous marker, with Pep Guardiola’s side clearly not missing the injured Kevin De Bruyne.

Chris Wilder’s Sheffield Utd will pose a different kind of threat to Liverpool tonight: the Blades have been in abject form this season with just one win and five points suggesting they are near-certainties to be relegated.

However, this is the sort of match in which Solskjaer’s United have traditionally struggled, and the pressure will be on the hosts to break down the Blades, who have won three of their last four in all competitions.

With kick-off at 8:15pm GMT, follow all the goals and latest action on our live match blog.

Prediction: Man United 2-0 Sheffield Utd

Chris Wilder’s men have indeed shown signs of improvement in recent weeks but the Red Devils, along with rivals Man City, are just about the form team in the country at the moment. It’s hard to look past a home win.
