Man City vs Sheffield Utd Preview
Man City welcome Sheff Utd to the Etihad staduim after an embarassing collapse in the last match. A late evening Sunday clash where city would come into it with only being 9 points ahead of Sheffield.
Both teams come into this fixture with an unfavourable result in previous gameweek. Sheffield united have an amazing away record with no losses to show so far. They have been unbelievable in defence giving away only 17 goals. Chris Wilder’s side has been sensational this year and injected a new life into a dissapointing Premier League season. Last match had ended in a draw against Watford. They have been unbeaten for the previous four gameweeks. Big six have found them unbeatable with only Liverpool getting past this Sheffield side courtesy of an rare Henderson’s error. They have nothing to be scared against this broken Man City side.
City on the other hand come into this effectively being out of the title race. Now they are adrift by 14 points with Liverpool having a game in hand. Conceding three goals in the last game is never ideal. City would be vary of Sheffield’s defence and would have to be patient to break them down. Missing Ederson due to suspension is not ideal. With Leicester occupying 2nd position and city being only 8 clear of Tottenham at 5th position would want to get back on winning ways.
Man city will be missing John Stones, Sane and Laporte along with missing Ederson due to suspension. (Express)
Chris Wilder confirmed he will check on a couple of players who had picked up knocks in the 1-1 draw with Watford, as well as a couple suffering from fatigue. (Sky Sports)

Prediction for Man City vs Sheffield United:
Man City 1-0 Sheffield United
These are the teams which cause problems for City. Sheffield would be resolute and make it hard for City to get into spaces. Man City will also miss Ederson which will be used by Wilder in their favour. But Man City at home will be too much a ask for Sheffield. Also with only some day rest, Sheffield would find hard to resist City’s press. So i Expect City to inflict Sheffield their first away defeat of the season.
