Manchester Utd vs Sheffield Utd Prediction & Betting tips
With the namesake from Sheffield, Manchester United welcomes a direct competitor in the fight for the Europa League. An introduction that you would not like to hear in Manchester, of course, because the Red Devils focus on the premier class.
With five points behind the blues from London, the last word is far from spoken in this matter. Furthermore, a respectable draw was won at Tottenham during the restart last week and the long break has meanwhile reduced the squad less than before due to injured players.
Participation in the Europa League would again be a great success for the guests. After all, the team of coach Chris Wilder started the season as a climber. For the upcoming match, the forecast includes a home win of zero. The kickoff at Old Trafford is at 18:00 p.m. on June 24th.
Further preliminary reports can easily be found in the extensive section of the betting base for England football tips.
The Red Devils have continued their series of unbeaten games thanks to the aforementioned draw in the last match against Spurs. Before the season was suspended, Manchester had remained without defeat in over twelve competitive matches in the various competitions. In league operations alone there are now six rounds in which no bankruptcy was conceded.
The success came mainly through a strong defensive. Only two goals were scored in the latter review. Instead, an impressive four clean sheets were achieved.
In the recent past, United’s back team could hardly be overcome, especially on their own territory: this can be seen from the fact that the past four home games in the Premier League and Europa League have all been played at zero.
The Solksjaer squad now also benefits from the break, as some injured players such as the French international Paul Pogba in midfield or Marcus Rashford are available to attack again. Furthermore, the obligations from the winter break have proven to be clever reinforcements.
The new signing Bruno Fernandez from Sporting, the second best goalgetter in the Primeira Liga last season, has already scored three goals in his six appearances so far. Here he successfully took responsibility from the penalty point twice – most recently in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham.
Odion Ighalo from Nigeria is also new on board. The attacker was loaned out by Shanghai Shenhua, where, like Fernandez in Portugal, he hit the second most frequently in the Chinese Super League in the past season.
In the Premier League, the striker has so far only been considered for short missions, but his exceptional individual class already flashed in the Europa League and the FA Cup.
The 31-year-old was in the starting XI in three games of these competitions and each time Ighalo thanked this trust with goals, with the offensive player even delivering a double in the away cup against Derby in the domestic cup.
Should there be a qualification for the Europa League for the blades in the end, this would be the first time in the club’s 130-year history! The return to the House of Lords after twelve years of abstinence would thus be extremely successful for the SUFC. But it is not yet that far and the appearances after the restart were not very promising.
At first it was only a goalless draw against the penultimate Aston Villa and then the form showed even further down: With 0: 3 United had to defeat Newcastle on the last matchday, which are also only in the lower midfield.
The long suspension of the season was clearly noticeable to the team in both games and the offensive in particular was disappointing. She did not score a single goal in the first two games. On the other hand, this is not an entirely new problem at Sheffield. The series of attacks manages only one hit per league game on average.
A value that is only undercut by five teams in a league-wide comparison. The previously successful season was thus worked out on the defensive. 28 goals conceded are an impressive record. The Reds from Liverpool alone are even more efficient in preventing goals. All the more surprising was the last result with the four-time FA Cup winner.
Three goals had been conceded in a league game earlier this season. However, the opponent was called Manchester United in mid-November last year and the defensive must be rebuilt in the upcoming match. The reason is the yellow-red for John Egan from the previous match at Newcastle.
To make matters worse, Dean Henderson will not be in goal. The keeper is on loan from Manchester and part of the deal is that he cannot be used in the direct duels.
In view of these personnel problems in the defense and the significantly increased offensive of the hosts as described, the odds for at least two goals by the hosts are also of interest in the game between Manchester United and Sheffield United.
