Sheffield United vs Manchester City: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need to know on how and where to watch Sheffield Utd host Manchester City at Bramall Lane (Sheffield) on 31 October at 13:30 CET.
Bramall Lane will be the scene for what is expected to be an intense and competitive match in the Premier League’s gameweek seven between Sheffield United and Manchester City. The reason for this is because the hosts are desperate for a victory after having picked up only one point from their six league games to date, leaving them 19th in the table, while City are well down on their standards in 13th, with just eight points.
Unlike in the Champions League, where City have recorded two victories in the first two matches, they will try to get back to winning ways after grabbing just one point in their visit to London against West Ham.
Meanwhile, The Blades, who visited the reigning champions Liverpool last Saturday and left Anfield empty-handed with a 2-1 loss, go into the match without Lys Mousset, Jack O’Connell, John Fleck and Simon Moore, all injured.
Chris Wilder could well set up with a similar starting XI from the one used in Liverpool to take on the Citizens, with Rhian Brewster likely to again be joined by Oli McBurnie to be menaces for the visitor’s defensive line.
As for City, Pep Guardiola will have to manage without some key players, especially in attack, since Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Agüero are unavailable due to injury. Moreover, he won’t be able to count on Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho, although Nathan Ake should be fit again after suffering a groin complaint.
Due to the injury situation of the team, City fans could see Riyad Mahrez and Joao Cancelo featuring in the starting XI, while Raheem Sterling is likely to continue in the centre-forward position, with Rodrigo Hernández, Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne providing support.
