Sheffield United vs Manchester United Match Details
Sheffield United vs Manchester United kicks-off at Bramhall Lane at 4.30pm on Sunday 24 November.
Sheffield United Form
Sheffield United remain unbeaten on their travels this season, having drawn five and won one of their six away matches. That’s been the foundation of their surprising success this season, but their home form is also decent.
The only real surprise in the form book is Southampton’s 1-0 win at Bramhall Lane, whilst the only other two teams to have taken three points off The Blades this season are Liverpool and Leicester. Meanwhile, they’ve beaten Crystal Palace, Arsenal, and Burnley at home.
Manchester United Form
Hit and miss is the best way to describe United’s season so far. Their main problem remains their strikers who have failed to find any consistency in front of goal, especially away from home.
They drew against Southampton and Wolves in their opening two away games. They then lost to a West Ham side that has struggled since, whilst another defeat followed at Newcastle. A win against bottom club Norwich then provided United with their first away win of the season, but their strikers again failed to fire in a 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth.
That means United have won just five points from six away games so far, and they’ve not played any of the top teams on their travels.
Sheffield United vs Manchester United Head-To-Heads
Sheffield United and Manchester United have played each other six times in the Premier League. Manchester United have won five of those matches, winning all three home matches and twice at Bramhall Lane, whilst Sheffield United have won once at home.
But four of those matches took place between 1992 –1994, whilst the other two took place in the 2006/7 season.
Interestingly, Manchester United won the title in each of those seasons, but are a long way from being genuine title challengers this season.
