Manchester City vs Sheffield Utd Match Preview and Team News
Manchester City have been losing pace in the title race in recent outings, but they got back on track last time. Pep Guardiola’s men, returning from their Club World Cup triumph, beat Everton 3-1. It was only the second win in the last seven league games and moved them to 37 points. City has a game less and even five points less than first place. However, this could change by the time they take to the pitch as second-placed Arsenal play the day before them. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Josko Guardiol arrived as the biggest reinforcement in the transfer window for as much as 90 million, he is one of the best defenders in the world. Pep Guardiola seeks responsibility in every game, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is, the players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world. Zack Steffen (Knee surgery), Erling Haaland (Stress reaction of the bone), Kevin De Bruyne (Fitness) and Jérémy Doku (Muscle injury) will be missing for Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
While City are angling to close the gap at the top of the standings, Sheffield are plotting their survival. Saturday’s visitors are in a precarious position as they sit at the bottom of the pile, seven points from safety. Their changes led to a change in coaching with new coach Chris Wilder overseeing the last five matches. The Blades have won four of their nine points in this five-game stretch. Benie Traore arrived from Haken where he scored 12 goals, he came as a big reinforcement, we will see how this guy will manage in the Premier League, and the fans expect a lot from him. Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has multiple availability issues to deal with. Tom Davies (unknown injury), Chris Basham (Leg injury) and John Egan (Foot injury) can’t be considered.
