Sheffield United vs Manchester City match preview

Will Manchester City’s perfect start to the season continue?

So far, the champions have played two and won two in the Premier League and are yet to concede a goal.

First, Erling Braut Håland’s brace helped down Burnley on the opening Friday night of the campaign before, last Saturday, Julián Álvarez’s rocket saw off Newcastle at the Etihad.

In-between, the Sky Blues picked up the UEFA Super Cup in Piraeus, defeating Sevilla on penalties at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

Pep Guardiola will not be making the trip to Bramall Lane for this one, following ‘routine back surgery’ this week, leaving Juanma Lillo in charge here, and for next Saturday’s clash with Fulham.

Even so, Manchester City are widely expected to cruise to victory.

As for Sheffield United, they’re still trying to get off the mark.

Paul Heckingbottom’s team have suffered a pair of one-goal defeats so far, beaten 1-0 by Crystal Palace before a 2-1 loss against Nottingham Forest last Friday night.

Gustavo Hamer, on debut, scored a stunning equaliser at the City Ground but, despite being the better team throughout, a late goal saw he Blades leave Nottingham with nothing.

Here, Man City will be looking for a sixth successive win over Sheffield United, having not even conceded a goal in these matches, featuring April’s 3-0 FA Cup semi-final victory at Wembley.

The Blades’ most-recent league victory in this fixture came in January 2000, Michael Brown, who played for both clubs, the only scorer in a second division clash back then.

This fact is certainly likely to remain true, with the Citizens likely to cruise to victory.

Sheffield United team news

New signings Vinícius Souza and Gustavo Hamer both came into the XI at the City Ground last weekend, with the latter marking his debut with a stupendous equaliser.

Youngsters William Osula and Bénie Traoré will continue to lead the line, neither of whom were born when Sheffield United last beat Manchester City in a league fixture.

Predicted XI (3-5-2): Foderingham; Ahmedhodžić, Egan, Robinson; Osborn, Norwood, Hamer, Souza, Lowe; Osula, Traoré.

Manchester City team news

Pep Guardiola is likely to name an unchanged XI for this one, featuring Phil Foden in a more central position, after he shone in the win over Newcastle.

In English football, Erling Braut Håland has faced 20 different opponents and scored against 16 of them, only failing to net against Chelsea, Brentford, Liverpool and Sheffield United, looking to change that here.

Despite netting in both the FA Community Shield and UEFA Super Cup, Cole Palmer will remain on the bench.

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Rúben Dias, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovačić, Foden, Álvarez, Grealish; Håland.
