Match: Manchester City vs Sheffield United
League: English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 29 December 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
Manchester City vs Sheffield United: City continues to reach unstoppable Liverpool and, as things stand, Pep Guardiola and his group of men may have to do it for the rest of the season. This Sunday, due to Etihad’s game and Sheffield’s relative inexperience in high flights, Manchester City won the favorite title.
City faced Leicester in second place on the last day of the game and had not yet won a return to Etihad. Thanks to the house advantage, Pep Guardiola’s men scored three goals in exchange for the one Jamie Vardy had scored.
Meanwhile, Sheffield was at home and had closed the horns with Watford. The low score case saw the teams share the loot at the end of the game with a score of 1-1.
This Sunday, the high hand clearly goes to Manchester City. They are twice defending champions of the league and have the advantage of the house in addition to that.
On the other hand, Sheffield, who was promoted on this high flight last summer, has to face the disadvantage outside against the desperate fate of Pep and his boys, who are chasing Liverpool.
In addition, City scored the most goals in the competition and awarded second place to the local crowd of all competing teams. In addition, they have been undefeated in 20 of their last 22 home games, and have also been undefeated in 17 of their previous 20 general games.
On the contrary, Sheffield has only five victories to prove, in his fourteen previous games, and only three of his previous ten on the road.
Most importantly, at home, Manchester Blues has a record 100% undefeated in H2H clashes, and did not concede a single goal as well, during the period.
Given all these observations, Pep Guardiola’s men are expected to give their best on the field to get all three points, whose failure would bring Liverpool closer to the title of champion.
As such, a commitment to support Manchester City to achieve an overwhelming victory should bring good results this Sunday.
