Sheffield United vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Rock bottom Sheffield United desperately need a result when they entertain Manchester United on Thursday.

Sheffield United have just one point from their first 12 matches and were beaten again last time out, losing 3-0 at Southampton.

The Blades failed to register a shot on target and were beaten by goals from Che Adams, Stuart Armstrong and Nathan Redmond.

Manchester United played out a drab 0-0 draw with rivals Manchester City in a game of very few chances.

Riyad Mahrez missed City’s best chance, whilst United were awarded a penalty, however it was over turned by VAR.
