Manchester City vs Sheffield United: Live Premier League Updates
Title Race Heats Up as Manchester City Host Sheffield United
All eyes will be on the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as Manchester City take on Sheffield United in a crucial Premier League clash. With just 11 games remaining in the season, the race for the title is heating up, and this match could have a big say in who ultimately comes out on top.
City currently sits second in the table, one point behind leaders Liverpool. The Citizens have been in impressive form of late, winning their last four league games and scoring 15 goals in the process. However, they will be without star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who is out with a hamstring injury.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, have enjoyed a solid campaign and currently sit seventh in the table. The Blades have been particularly strong at home, winning seven of their 11 matches at Bramall Lane. However, they have struggled on the road, winning just twice in 11 attempts.
Team News and Possible Lineups
For Manchester City, De Bruyne is the only major absentee. Fernandinho is also a doubt after missing the midweek win over Real Madrid with a muscle problem.
Sheffield United have no fresh injury concerns. David McGoldrick is pushing for a start after coming off the bench to score against Newcastle last weekend.
Possible Manchester City lineup: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
Possible Sheffield United lineup: Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Stevens; McBurnie, Sharp, Mousset
