Man Utd vs Sheffield Utd: Predictions
Man Utd will look to follow up from an impressive FA Cup fourth-round win over Liverpool at the weekend and consolidate their Premier League standing in first when they welcome basement boys Sheff Utd to Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men triumphed 3-2 in a scintillating North West Derby on Sunday, in a spectacle that was poles apart from the 0-0 damp squib in the league the week prior. That result booked a ticket with West Ham in the next round and kept the optimism high at Old Trafford.
Not since the halcyon days of Sir Alex Ferguson have Man Utd been sitting pretty at the top of the table post-Christmas, and Solskjaer will be hoping there are no banana skins on Wednesday when the Blades come to town.
Chris Wilder’s men remain in desperate need of points if they are to pull off an unlikely escape and stave off the threat of relegation. But they remain rooted to the foot of the table and winless at Old Trafford since December 1973.

Man Utd vs Sheffield Utd: Match Stats
Sheff Utd ‘keeper Aaron Ramsdale has been anything but a spectator this season and he is in for another busy night on Wednesday. In Bruno Fernandes, Man Utd boast the Premier League’s third-highest shot taker (63), with only Patrick Bamford (65) and Harry Kane (69) letting fly on more occasions this term.
Not only that but the Red Devils also have a certain Marcus Rashford lying in wait. The England international has a formidable record against the Blades, having been directly involved in six goals across his three Premier League appearances against the club (three goals, three assists), averaging a goal or assist every 43 minutes against Wilder’s men.

17 April 2007 – Man Utd 2-0 Sheffield Utd – Premier League
In the end it was a routine win for Man Utd at Bramall Lane last month despite the scoreline projecting a different story. The 3-3 in South Yorkshire last season was a much more tense affair, with Solskjaer’s men fighting back from 2-0 down before conceding at the death to share the spoils. The Blades have had their scoring success on home soil but have not found the back of the net at Old Trafford in the past four attempts.
