The Blades are at the other end of the spectrum after taking only five points from their opening 19 matches. Chris Wilder’s men claimed a vital win over Newcastle United to earn their first victory of the campaign, but their hopes of survival in the Premier League look slim to say the least. They need to start picking up wins, even ones in unlikely places. A victory at Old Trafford could provide a turning point for the south Yorkshire outfit.
Manchester United were surpassed at the top of the Premier League by Manchester City, who thrashed West Brom on Tuesday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have the perfect chance to respond and reclaim top spot against the bottom club Sheffield United tonight. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League matches and have won their last three games on the bounce at home. They cannot afford to take their foot off the gas.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Sheffield United at Old Trafford.
