Match Preview

It has been a damaging start to life back in the top-flight for Sheffield United, as they have suffered successive defeats to start the season. The Blades looked incredibly light in the forward positions in their opening match of the campaign, as they were easily beaten at Bramall Lane by Crystal Palace.

They were slightly better on matchday two, as they pushed Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. However, they once again left empty handed after Chris Wood scored a dramatic last-minute winner. But, the Blades did net their first league goal of the season in that defeat, as Gustavo Hamer scored a stunning effort early in the second half.

Man City will be the commanding favorites in the betting for this showdown, as Pep Guardiola’s side look to record a third straight win. At present, they sit second in the standings, but they are yet to concede in their opening two matches of the season. City needed to be at their best last weekend, as they secured a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

The winning goal was scored just after the half hour mark, as Julian Alvarez opened his account for the new season. City allowed the Magpies just a single shot on target, and breaking down their defensive line will be a big ask for any team in the Premier League this term.

Sheffield United vs Man City Prediction

City have won each of their last five matches against the Blades in all competitions without conceding a goal. We fully expect that trend to continue on Sunday, and we could see the champions landing a big-scoring win on the road.
