Sheffield United vs Manchester United: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the info you need to know on how and where to watch Sheffield United host Manchester United at Bramall Lane (Sheffield) on 17 December at 21:00 CEST.
Get the first win of the season. That is and will be Sheffield United’s mission when they take on Manchester United at home on Thursday. The hosts, in the last spot of the standings, have just been able to grab a point in the first 12 Premier League matches, which represents the worst start for any team in the tournament’s history.
Emerging victorious won’t be the easiest task for the 'Blades', as Manchester United sit eight points off the top of the table with two games in hand, not to mention that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have won 15 of their 20 points away from home.
One for the record books?
Actually, this could be a match where both teams could make history: Sheffield United will try to get their first triumph in their 13th match, while if the Red Devils beat the hosts, they could become only the fourth side in English top-flight history to win 10 consecutive away league games.
Don't presume United are dead and buried
Another interesting stat is that Solskjaer’s outfit have conceded the first goal in all five of their away matches so far, before coming back to win. If Sheffield were the first to score and the visitors came back to get the victory, Manchester United would become the only team to ever do that in six away games during an entire Premier League season.
Cavani is likely to miss the game
The Red Devils will hope to extend their success away from home and they will try to do it possibly without Edinson Cavani, as the Uruguayan star isn't fully fit to play.
Anthony Martial came off the bench against Manchester City, following his brief spell on the sidelines, so he could play from the start against Sheffield United.
Solskjaer revealed Marcos Rojo has suffered a setback and will be out until the new year, along with fellow central defender Phil Jones.
Alex Telles could join him after missing out last game, while the in-form Bruno Fernandes will feature in the starting XI. The Portuguese midfielder has directly contributed to a goal in 11 of his 12 Premier League away games so far.
Sheffield's McBurnie will be unavailable
As for the hosts, they won’t be able to call upon long-term absentee Jack O’Connell, and Oli McBurnie, who scored the late equaliser in this fixture last season, is a major doubt due to shoulder trouble.
Kean Bryan is the only other injury concern for Sheffield, but coach Chris Wilder will be able to call upon Lys Mousset, Max Lowe and John Lundstram.
