Manchester City vs Sheffield United Prediction & Match Preview

Manchester City vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 29 December 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).


Manchester City will look to end 2019 on a high note when they welcome Sheffield United to the Etihad Stadium in their final match of the year.

 



The Sky Blues are coming on the back of a narrow and heartbreaking 3-2 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek that once again derailed their title challenge. Hence, registering all three points against Sheffield United could be imperative as they look to return to winning ways.

City have never lost a Premier League match against Sheffield United, having won three and drawn three of their previous fixtures.

But, Chris Wilder’s side have been this season’s surprise package, and despite being hot favourites for the drop at the start of the season, are still in the hunt for a top four spot.
