Sheffield United vs Manchester United predictions
It is predicted that a 3-1 win for Manchester United against the Sheffield United side, according to Alleysport, considering the poor form Sheffield United has been in for some time now. Sheffield United have failed to win a game in their campaign so far and they have managed to draw only one game in their 12 games so far. The last time these two teams played against each other was a 3-0 win for the Manchester United side in June this year.
Sheffield United 0-2 Manchester United is the score that SportsMole predicted. They say that everything points to a Manchester United win in this match as the league's worst home record takes on the best away record. The Red Devils' form on the road in the league is remarkable considering the lack of consistency elsewhere and it will surely only be a matter of time before their winning run ends, but it is difficult to see that happening at the home of a team that is on course to go down as one of the worst in top-flight history.
