The Sheffield Utd team will challenge the Manchester City team in a Matchday 3 Premier League in Bramall Lane Stadium, Sheffield on Sunday, August 27, 2023. For streaming coverage of Sheffield Utd vs Man City, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Sheffield United will host Man City at Bramall Lane on Sunday 27/8 in the morning of Week 3 of the 2023/24 Premier League. This is a very unequal game between the promoted team who are yet to pick up a single point and the reigning champions who are undefeated.
Sheff Utd have just stepped up to the Premier League this season, but they haven’t been able to show their teeth here. They lost their opening two matches, 1-0 respectively to Nottingham and Leeds.
Sheff Utd came close to equalizing in stoppage time but fate was not on their side. They have to admit that the Premier League is a different level and they are not ready to compete here.
On the other hand, Man City is a team that is used to playing at the highest level. They are the defending champions who are still maintaining their slick form. They won their first two matches, each with a score of 2-0 from Liverpool and Newcastle.
Even though they haven’t played to their full potential, Man City still has a big advantage over Sheff Utd. This is a golden opportunity for Man City to show their class as the best team in the world.
Man City also has an advantage in terms of player strength. They will be strengthened by several star players who have recovered from illness or injury, such as Bernardo Silva and Doku. Doku is a new player who has just been bought from Rennes at a great price. He is expected to quickly adapt to Man City’s style of play and show his talent. John Stones and De Bruyne are still out through injury.
Meanwhile, Sheff Untd will face many problems due to injuries that have befallen many of their top players, such as Max Lowe, John Fleck, Rhian Brewster, Ismaila Coulibaly, Daniel Jebbison, Jayden Bogle, Anis Ben Slimane and Rhys Norrington-Davies. Only George Baldock and Oli McBurnie were able to recover from injuries and return to training.
Coach Pep Guardiola also cannot accompany his team because he recently underwent back surgery. However, he kept control of his team remotely and gave directions to his assistant Juanma Lillo. Lillo is a confidant of Guardiola who replaced him temporarily as head coach of Man City.
With conditions like this, it is not difficult to predict the final result of this match. Man City will dominate the game and create many goal opportunities. Sheff Utd will try to defend with all their might and look for opportunities on the counterattack. However, most likely they will not be able to withstand the onslaught of Man City who have Erling Haaland and Julian Alvares.
