Sheffield United vs Manchester City Prediction (21-01-2020)
Another Premier League fixture saw Manchester City lose even more ground on Liverpool over the weekend. Surely now they have all but conceded the title. While the Reds face a tough test at the Molineux, City can’t afford to take a very stubborn Sheffield United team lightly and will have to be at their best in order to come away with all three points.
The Blades added another credible draw away at Arsenal to their list of impressive results on their top flight return this season. They’re a tough nut to crack and possess enough firepower to worry any defence in the league.
Manager Chris Wilder wasn’t best pleased with the referee in the return fixture as he quite literally assisted City’s opening goal after The Blades had their own opener ruled out. United players and fans consider themselves unlucky that day and rightly so. They’ll have a score to settle on their own patch this week.
Another unsatisfactory home performance against bogey team Crystal Palace at the weekend should see Pep Guardiola chop and change once again going into their latest game. The Riyad Mahrez, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus combination that ripped Aston Villa apart two games ago could (and probably should) be restored.
Is it too obvious to tip Sergio Agüero to score any time? Probably. But you should still do it. The Argentine is in a purple patch at the moment and not many (in other words, no one) can stop him when he is in this sort of mood.
