      Manchester United vs Sheffield United Predictions

       

      The Red Devils have been anything but prolific in the league this year with just 24 goals scored in 20 matches so far. Cup specialists Sheffield United will fancy they can restrict what isn’t likely to be a full-strength Manchester United side given they have a Premier League game at Newcastle just 3 days after this one.

      There have been 2 or fewer goals in 11 of the last 16 matches involving Man United and there have already been six 0-0 draws at Old Trafford this season including 3 of the last 5, which helps to in part explain why Louis Van Gaal has become so unpopular at a club that prides itself on attacking football.

      The Blades come here in pretty good form, having won 4 of their last 5 matches to move to the brink of the play-off places in League 1. They were beaten 3-2 by an expansive Peterborough side at the weekend but generally there haven’t been many goals in their recent matches and 3 of those 4 wins were by 1-0 margins.

      There have been under 2.5 goals in all of their last 6 away matches and they will come here with a cautious mentality and perhaps a genuine belief that they can frustrate Manchester United and get them back to Bramall Lane for a replay and at 43/40 there is value in backing there to be under 2.5 goals in this game.

      Sheffield United reached the FA Cup Semi Finals 2 years ago and won away at Premier League QPR in the 3rd Round last season. They were also League Cup semi-finalists last season so they do enjoy the cups and should make a game of this but the Premier League side are likely to have enough to just scrape the win and can be backed to win 1-0 at 11/2.
