Premier League leaders Manchester City have the chance to extend their lead at the top when they take on Sheffield United on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola’s men have won seven games on the spin in the league and will be four points clear of rivals Manchester United if they can take care of the division’s bottom club, having played the same number of games, though United play again later on Saturday evening against Arsenal.
Chris Wilder’s side will be no pushovers though, having won at Old Trafford in midweek and after a dismal start to the season, the Blades have strung together a run of four wins in five games in all competitions, according to Evening Standard.
Manchester City VS Sheffield United - Betting Preview
Man City’s most recent matches saw them reach the finals of the League Cup, progress to the Round 5 of the FA Cup, and beat Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, and West Brom in the league, without conceding once and netting 12 goals in the process. They have taken the lead from Man Utd but could return to second-place until the weekend, as their Manchester rivals have a game in hand. As for the visitors, they come into this match on the back of the two wins –a 2-1 win in the FA Cup Round 4 against Plymouth and a shocking 2-1 win at Man Utd. It took until early January for the Blades to pick up their first points, but they still remain rooted to the foot of the table, 10 points from safety.
It was after their impressive victory at Chelsea on 3 January that Pep Guardiola declared his Manchester City were back. More than 20 days since have reinforced that view, with Man City winning their last seven Premier League matches to move up to the top of the table ahead of the weekend’s action. Guardiola's men were as low as 15th at one stage in the campaign, yet they suddenly find themselves with the title race effectively in their hands.
On Tuesday, they hammered the Baggies 5-0 at the Hawthorns to overtake Man Utd at the top of the Premier League. City were without Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, and Gabriel Jesus and had no out-and-out forward in their team, and still could have scored more goals in an 11th straight win. Gundogan continued his inspired run with two excellent strikes, while Joao Cancelo and Riyad Mahrez netted third and fourth before the break. Sterling got in on the act in the second half as City ended a day on top of the table for the first time this season.
After 186 frustrating days, the Blades finally got to experience a winning feeling that had not just deserted them but appeared to have packed up and left the country. Two wins on the trot gave Sheffield Utd slim hopes that they can avoid relegation. The Blades do not lack effort or commitment but, yet again, that has not been enough for them. They don't seem to be able to hurt teams and Chris Wilder admitted himself that his team needs an "incredible run" to avoid relegation after their awful start to the season.
Against Man Utd, the Blades were 12-1 outsider to win this game, having previously collected three points just once this season against Newcastle, but they battled to a second victory which they fully deserved. Their in-form hosts may have felt this was a foregone conclusion before kick-off, but Sheffield Utd were well up for the job. With 18 games still remaining, this will give the South Yorkshire side a boost as they aim for the unlikeliest of survival missions, cited bettingkick.

Man City vs Sheff Utd betting tips
Man City to win & under 3.5 goals:
Sheffield United’s incredible win at Old Trafford has given them a fighting chance of Premier League survival, but I’m still backing them to lose with under 3.5 goals scored in their next assignment: an away game against Man City.
The Blades have now won four of their last five matches in all competitions, but unfortunately for them, City have now won their last 11, keeping clean sheets in six of their last seven at home in the league, which is bonkers.
Over 3.5 goals have been scored in just three of Sheffield United’s league games this season, and I believe they’ll hang in there for as long as possible against City, and though it’s unlikely they’ll score, I can’t see Pep Guardiola’s men sticking four past them considering the visitors’ form.
United will be competitive, but City will just be too good, reported oddschecker.
