Manchester United vs Sheffield United: Line-up, EPL prediction and result

It’s a golden opportunity for Ole’s Red Devils to maintain their EPL title charge.

Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

A good old top-versus-bottom clash in the English Premier League sees Manchester United host Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

Old Trafford is the venue as the Red Devils continue what has recently become a battle between themselves and noisy neighbours Manchester City at the summit, with Pep Guardiola’s men having the chance to edge ahead as they play on Tuesday at West Brom.

United followed up their derby draw at Liverpool with a sneaky win over Fulham to extend their unbeaten run and dare fans to dream of the glory days of old.

Marcus Rashford may sit this one out after limping out of Cup action last weekend, which should at least pave the way for Anthony Martial to return.

Forgotten duo Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are joined on the sidelines by youngster Brandon Williams.

Sheffield United are a dizzying 12 points adrift of safety and have won just once in the Premier League all season.

The Blades are hurtling towards a return to the Championship despite pinching a win over Newcastle at Bramall Lane, following that up with defeat to Tottenham last time out.

And it doesn’t get any easier as their visit to the Theatre of Dreams threatens to be more akin to 90 minutes in the torture chamber.

Lys Mousset could come back into the reckoning for boss Chris Wilder, who is set to remain without the services of Sander Berge, Jack Robinson, Oliver McBurnie, Jack O’Connell and Ben Osborn.
