Manchester City seek victory over lowly Sheffield United on Saturday to jump back into the title race

Sheffield United Man City

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City head to Bramall Lane on Saturday seeking three much-needed Premier League points after a meek start to the season.

City could drop as low as 16th in the table if they lose to the Blades this weekend and other results go against them.

The Etihad club have picked up just eight points from their opening five Premier League fixtures and have endured a raft of injuries early on this term.

United, meanwhile, are yet to win a top-flight game this season and only picked up their first point of the campaign in a draw with Fulham two weeks ago.

Chris Wilder’s men came close to scalping Liverpool last weekend before losing that contest at Anfield 2-1, and the boss will hope for an equally close-fought tie here.

Sheffield United v Man City team news

Sheffield United: John Fleck remains out of action for the Blades, but Max Lowe could be fit following a concussion.

Simon Moore might make it back from a broken finger. Jack O’Connell and Lys Mousset are out.

Man City: Nathan Ake is rated 50/50 to feature here after missing City’s last three games with a groin issue.

Sergio Aguero is out injured, while Fernando, Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus aren’t expected back until late November. Riyad Mahrez could come back into the XI after starting on the bench against Marseille in midweek.

Our prediction: Sheffield United v Man City

The Blades have struggled for goals this season and, while City may have some key men absent through injury, it appears unlikely that the visitors will be spooked too often on Halloween this Saturday.

City have enough firepower to comfortably win this game but have laboured for goals in their last three Premier League outings, scoring just once in each of them.

This could be a closer game than the transfer value of both squads suggests. However, it’s hard to see how United keep City at back for 90 minutes while posing a genuine threat at the other end.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Man City
