Sheffield Utd vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Tips
Sheffield United’s atrocious campaign in the Premier League (PL) continues, as they became the first team since Manchester United in 1930/31 to lose an additional 11 or more top-flight matches after an initial 12 matchdays, and also in the first team to win just one point or less in the same 12 span in English Football League history since Newport County in 1970/71.
Problems are easy to point out. In addition to drawing at half-time and losing at the end of the game in 50% of his games – the highest figure in the league – he also scored 0.42 goals per game for PL, the worst record in the entire PL. However, the host’s only point was at home, where only one of their six PL matches saw a margin of two or more goals difference, while five of those matches featured less than 2.5 goals.
The fact that those home games have been surprisingly tight suggests that Sheffield may change their home performance, although here they face a Man United side that won their first five league matches on the road for the first time since 1985/86. , despite conceding the first goal in all of them. In fact, Man United’s 3-1 victory on their last visit to PL brought their all-time PL accumulated points tally after trailing to 385, more than any other team in PL history.
Therefore, he has achieved 75% of his units away from home, where in the five games he has played so far he has scored three or more goals. As can be expected from a team that thrives on the comeback, 75% of Man United’s PL away goals came in the second half and 43.75% after the 75th minute.
Players to watch: Oliver McBurnie scored Sheffield’s only home goal in PL – excluding set pieces – this season, and will surely be jealous of Bruno Fernandes’ form as the Man United superstar already he has scored five away goals so far in the PL.
Highlight: Man United are only the second team in PL history to score two or more goals in nine consecutive away games.
