For our Premier League predictions today, we’re heading to the very heart of the English north, where struggling Sheffield United host a Manchester City side that have underwhelmed thus far this season. The Premier League tips & betting predictions are to follow for this match.
After making a huge impression in their first season in the top flight in 2006 last year, Sheffield United have struggled to get going thus far this season. A fact that has surprised most Premier League predictions experts such as ourselves. Chris WIlder’s side have just a single point after 6 games, as a 1-1 draw with fellow table bottomers Fulham is the only semi-positive result they have managed. With that in mind, hosting hotly tipped title contenders Manchester City is not the ideal fixture to help the Blades bounce back to winning ways.
After being hotly tipped as title favourites ahead of the season, Manchester City have struggled for form thus far. Having only won 2 of their first 5 games. 1-1 draws with Leeds United and West Ham have made up their other 2 results, while a 5-2 home thrashing at the hands of Leicester City was the first of many shock results early on in this strange and unprecedented season. The problems for City seem to be at the back, as they’ve conceded in all but one of their games thus far this campaign.
Manchester City narrowly got the better of Sheffield United in both of their games last season. Pep Guardiola’s men ran out 2-0 winners at the Etihad before snatching a 1-0 win away at Bramall Lane. Our Premier League predictions today point to yet another City win. Prior to last season’s meetings, these two sides hadn’t met since 2006, when the Blades were last in the top flight. And before that, they last met in the ‘93/94 season. Sheffield United have no recorded victories against Manchester City in the Premier League era.
Below, we’ve provided you with the results of the last 5 games between these two teams as well as 3 statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this info and analysed plenty more in the process of bringing out this Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net.
Having analysed everything mentioned above, we’re backing Manchester City to grab the away win for our Premier League predictions.
It’s fair to say that neither of these sides have had the season that we would’ve expected. However if there’s one team that looks like getting back on track this weekend, it has to be Manchester City. Although City still have their problems at the back, Sheffield United have been poor enough this season to make us think they can’t overcome an established heavyweight such as City. However, with City’s backline in the conditions it’s in, the possibility of the Blades grabbing a goal is highly likely, given that they have managed to score in each of their last 3. Therefore our match prediction for today is for exactly 3 goals to be scored at odds of 4 with bet365.
