Manchester City Insights.

In theory, table toppers Manchester City should have no trouble against a Sheffield United team still odds-on to finish bottom. As owners of the league’s best defence facing the top-flight’s worst attack, City are expected to complete a run of five successive clean-sheet wins at home in Premier League (PL) action, averaging 1.5 second-half goals across the four that precede this clash. City have also beaten the -1 handicap ‘to-nil’ in ten of their 13 PL home wins attained behind closed doors (June 2020-present). Additionally, nine of City’s last ten PL home games vs eventual bottom-placed sides have seen them score 2+ goals beyond the hour mark, as part of a perfect 13-season record from such fixtures (2007/08-2019/20).

Sheffield Insights.

Sheffield United’s stunning 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Wednesday night breathed new life into their remote aspirations for survival. They are still massive outsiders here though, conceding an average of 0.75 goals per-game between the 61st minute and FT across their PL defeats this term. Though they have conceded 55.56% of their away league ‘goals against’ beyond the hour mark, Sheffield United have proven susceptible to conceding late in the first half on recent travels. The ‘Blades’ have shipped one goal between the 31st minute and HT in each of the three defeats within their current five-game PL away form (W1, D1, L3).
