Man United will be looking to recover following an extremely slow start to the 2023-24 season. The Red Devils currently sit tenth in the standings after eight rounds of matches, but they could close the gap on the European spots with a second straight victory in the Premier League this weekend.
United’s record against newly promoted opposition is excellent, as they have won each of their last nine. That includes victories in each of their last six away matches against sides playing their first season in the Premier League. The Red Devils have scored at least once in each of their last league showdowns against the Blades.
The pressure will be on Sheffield United this weekend, as they look to end their winless start to the new season. They are one of just two sides that are yet to taste victory this term. Sheffield United have picked up one point from their opening eight matches, which is their lowest tally at this stage of the campaign.
Defensively, there are huge concerns ahead of this weekend. The Blades have conceded at least twice in each of their last seven Premier League matches. Their record in this fixture also doesn’t offer much hope, as the Blades have landed victories in just two of the ten Premier League clashes between the sides.
Sheffield United vs Man United Prediction
It has been a challenging start to the season for the Red Devils. However, we find it challenging to overlook the visitors this weekend, as they boast an excellent record against the Blades and have also been dominant in previous encounters against newly promoted opposition.
