Match Predictions Manchester City vs Sheffield United
This Sunday, Manchester City are the clear favorites to win. They are the defending champions this season, and on top of that, they have the home advantage.
Moreover, the Blues have never lost at home in head-to-head matches. Also, they have not conceded a single goal at this venue.
On the other hand, Sheffield United are inexperienced in playing in the top-flight. They are playing on the road, and they face the team that is desperate to win any game they play in order to defend their title.
Furthermore, Sheffield have only won 5 of their 14 games across all competitions. On the road, they have only won 3 of their previous ten games.
Keeping in mind all the observations stated above, it is expected of Pep Guardiola’s team to give it their all. If they do not win this one, they might as well bid farewell to the title.
