Manchester United vs Sheffield is exciting to watch furthermore, The Red Devils are the favourite based on recent form. United are in first place in the Premier League and are finding some stability. With the defence playing well, will we again see the partnership of Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly. After Jurgen Klopp rested some of his big guns in the loss to Burnley, we will likely see some more firepower in attack for this one. That means the United defence is needed to be at their best and keep their shape at the back with Liverpool’s potential down the wings
Injuries are taking their toll on Chris Wilder’s side. Who could be forced to deploy veteran Phil Jagielka after the suspended John Egan joined Jack O’Connell on the sidelines. Losing so many players ahead of a run of six games in 18 days is a cruel blow for the Blades. Who are struggling to carry out sessions as normal of late.
“We might just have to plot our way through this little period. With the two Manchester games, Chelsea, West Brom and the FA Cup tie. Just until we get back to the week-to-week games,” said Wilder. “We’re trying to get everybody back fit but certainly we’re teachers and coaches. For that to be taken away from us, that’s a big disadvantage for us.”
