Top hosts bottom in the Premier League on Wednesday evening as Manchester United welcome Sheffield United to Old Trafford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer men’s aiming to continue their excellent recent form.

Manchester United vs Sheffield United Preview
These two sides met at Bramall Lane on December 17 and played out a hugely entertaining game which saw the hosts take the lead, only for Man United to fight back and win 3-2.
They may be rooted to the bottom of the table and on course for one of the lowest points tallies in Premier League history, but Chris Wilder’s side have actually been competitive in a lot of their matches this season.
Although a win at Old Trafford is highly unlikely, there should be some interest in backing them to get on the score sheet – as they did in their away matches against Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester City this term.
Indeed, the Red Devils have kept just four clean sheets in their last 12 home league matches and, of course, shipped two goals in their most recent meeting with the Blades.
Manchester United vs Sheffield United Tips and Predictions
Man United to win and both teams to score is offered at 11/5 (3.20) and looks like offering value for Wednesday night’s game.
Both teams to score has paid out in seven of the Red Devils’ last 11 league games and with the odds suggesting they are highly likely to win at Old Trafford, backing them to do so while conceding is appealing.
