Reason For Sheffield United vs Manchester United Betting Tips

  • Sheffield United could go four points clear in the Premier League top six with a win on Sunday.
  • Manchester United have scored just five away goals in the Premier League this season, averaging 0.83 goals per game.
  • Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games.

Overperforming Blades out to cause an upset

Sheffield United weren’t given much of a chance this season, with the newly promoted club heading into the top flight after two promotions in three years. They have a comparatively tiny budget, and manager Chris Wilder refused to budge from the approach that got the Blades promoted in the first place. You can see why people were dubious about their chances.

However, heading into a busy festive period Sheffield United find themselves in a completely unexpected position. They sit 5th in the Premier League table, leading the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United and inexplicably only eight points adrift of the all-conquering Manchester City in 4th.

That being said, things are tight in this section of the table. Defeat this weekend could send them plummeting into the bottom half of the table, but as they look back on a five match unbeaten streak they will feel quietly confident about their chances on Sunday. The Blades have lost just three of their 12 league games so far, and they managed a win over Arsenal just over a month ago.

Solskjaer’s defensive rebuild not enough for success

Manchester United fans, meanwhile, have had to endure another spell plagued by injuries and poor form this season. Their recent wins over Norwich and Brighton have boosted confidence a little, but a tally of just 16 points from 12 games illustrates just how far off the pace they have been this term.

The summer saw defensive reinforcements arrive at Old Trafford, and both Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have proven their worth so far. However, the departure of Romelu Lukaku and their inability to replace him has left them desperately short of firepower at the other end, resulting in a distinct lack of goals from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Both sides lacking firepower

Indeed, their Premier League away games this season have averaged a meagre two goals per game, and five of these six outings have seen fewer than three goals.

Sheffield United are no strangers to low scoring games either. They have seen fewer than three goals in four of their six home league games, with each game averaging just 1.67 goals in total. This makes backing Under 2.5 Goals look a very solid option here, so we’re going for that.

We’re expecting The Blades to get something from this game too. Manchester United have won just one of their six away matches this season, two of which have ended as 1-1 draws. Considering Sheffield United score an average of one goal per game at home and Manchester United score 0.83 goals per game away from home, backing a 1-1 draw looks the best option.
