Manchester United vs Sheffield United Betting Predictions and Odds
Manchester boarding up again?
With the namesake from Sheffield, Manchester United welcomes a direct competitor in the fight for the Europa League. An introduction that you would not like to hear in Manchester, of course, because the Red Devils focus on the premier class.
With five points behind the blues from London, the last word is far from spoken in this matter. Furthermore, a respectable draw was won at Tottenham during the restart last week and the long break has meanwhile reduced the squad less than before due to injured players.
Participation in the Europa League would again be a great success for the guests. After all, the team of coach Chris Wilder started the season as a climber. For the upcoming match, the prediction includes a home win of zero. The kickoff at Old Trafford on June 24th.
Manchester United – Statistics & current form
The Red Devils have continued their series of unbeaten games thanks to the aforementioned draw in the last match against Spurs. Before the season was suspended, Manchester had remained without defeat in over twelve competitive matches in the various competitions. In league operations alone there are now six rounds in which no bankruptcy was conceded.
United turns into a defensive bulwark
The success came mainly through a strong defensive. Only two goals were scored in the latter review. Instead, an impressive four clean sheets were achieved.
In the recent past, United’s back team could hardly be overcome, especially on their own territory: this can be seen from the fact that the past four home games in the Premier League and Europa League have all been played at zero.
Personnel situation in the squad has recovered
The Solksjaer squad is now also benefiting from the break, as some injured players such as French international Paul Pogba in midfield or Marcus Rashford are available to attack again. Furthermore, the obligations from the winter break have proven to be clever reinforcements.
The new signing Bruno Fernandez from Sporting, the second best goalgetter in the Primeira Liga last season, has already scored three goals in his six appearances so far. Here he successfully took responsibility from the penalty point twice – most recently in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham.
Odion Ighalo from Nigeria is also new on board. The attacker was loaned out by Shanghai Shenhua, where, like Fernandez in Portugal, he scored the second most frequently in the Chinese Super League in the past season.
In the Premier League, the striker has so far only been considered for short missions, but his exceptional individual class already flashed in the Europa League and the FA Cup.
The 31-year-old was in the starting XI in three games of these competitions and each time Ighalo thanked this trust with goals, with the offensive player even delivering a double in the away cup against Derby in the domestic cup.
Probable line-up of Manchester United:
↳ de Gea – Wan-Bissaka – Lindelöf – Maguire – Shaw – Fred – McTominay – Pogba – James – Fernandes – Rashford

Sheffield United – Statistics & current form
Should there be a qualification for the Europa League for the blades in the end, this would be the first time in the club’s 130-year history! The return to the House of Lords after twelve years of abstinence would thus be extremely successful for the SUFC. But it is not yet that far and the appearances after the restart were not very promising.
At first there was only a goalless draw against the penultimate Aston Villa and then the form showed even further down: With 0: 3 United had to defeat Newcastle on the last match day, which are also only in the lower midfield.
Attack with pronounced restraint
The long suspension of the season was clearly noticeable to the team in both games and the offensive in particular was disappointing. She did not score a single goal in the first two games. On the other hand, this is not an entirely new problem at Sheffield. The series of attacks manages only one hit per league game on average.
A value that is only undercut by five teams in a league-wide comparison. The previously successful season was thus worked out on the defensive. 28 goals conceded are an impressive record. The Reds from Liverpool alone are even more efficient in preventing goals. All the more surprising was the last result with the four-time FA Cup winner.
Three goals had been conceded in a league game earlier this season. However, the opponent was called Manchester United in mid-November last year and the defensive must be rebuilt in the upcoming match. The reason is the yellow-red for John Egan from the previous match at Newcastle.
Change of goalkeeper necessary due to loan business
To make matters worse, Dean Henderson will not be in goal. The keeper is on loan from Manchester and part of the deal is that he cannot be used in the direct duels.
Probable lineup of Sheffield United:
↳ Moore – Basham – Robinson – Stevens – Fleck – Norwood – Lundstram – Mountains – Baldock – McBurnie – Sharp

Manchester United vs Sheffield United Direct comparison
In the match in the first round, the teams separated with a 3: 3. The much praised defense of Sheffield experienced its worst performance.

Manchester United vs Sheffield United Betting Predictions and Odds by PicksSoccer Experts
Manchester will be very committed to the match without their fans in the back. The dream of the Champions League can only be realized with as many victories as possible. A renewed participation in the Europa League would not satisfy anyone at the Red Devils.
However, the form before the break and the return to the season worked well last week when a draw was taken at the Spurs and a victory would have been well deserved. Above all, the defense newly formed before the season is finding itself better and better in a functioning unit.
She has not conceded a goal at Old Trafford in 270 minutes in the Premier League and in between the new Belgian champions from Bruges were beaten 5-0 in the Europa League. The guests arrive in a knocked-down state.
Key Facts – Manchester United vs Sheffield United tips
Duel in the first half ended with a 3: 3
Home side have not lost in seven duels with Sheffield (6-1-0)
Guests have been waiting for the first hit since the restart
As promoters they basically play a great season and are only two points behind the upcoming opponent, but the restart was not successful with tired appearances. For the game between Manchester United and Sheffield United, the tip therefore includes a home win including a clean sheet.
Last but not least, the personnel worries for the blades in the defense speak for themselves. The showpiece of the team has to do without two important players this time and should therefore be more shaky than usual.
