17th December 2020 – 21:00, Bramall Lane, Sheffield
The clash between Sheffield United and Manchester United will close the 13th round of the Premier League. The hosts are still searching for the first victory, while the away side wants to continue their unbeatable streak.
Match Preview & Team News
Sheffield United is the hottest candidate for relegation since they picked up just one point in the first 12 rounds. Chris Wilder’s side needs to start winning as soon as possible if they want to keep their place in the top flight. Although they are not the worst defensive side in the competition, David McGoldrick and the lads scored just five goals. The Blades are in an appealing streak of seven defeats in a row, and they netted only three times during that period. Luckily for the home side, the nearest safe spot is not so far away since Fulham is only eight points ahead of them. However, Sheffield United needs to break their winless run and so that they can get involved in the survival battle.
On the other hand, Manchester United enjoys a good streak in the Premier League as they failed to win just once in the past five rounds. That unbeatable run launched them to 9th place, having two games in hand and being eight points behind Liverpool. With the potential win from this clash, they would climb to the 5th spot and get just two points away from Tottenham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed to snatch a draw against their local rivals City last weekend, in a goalless draw which disappointed many football fans. Although the Red Devils have trouble playing at Old Trafford, the visitors have been perfect at away grounds as they celebrated in all five outings. Manchester United can get very close to the top four if they pick up all three points from this clash, and they have a very good chance of doing so.
