Manchester United face a tricky away fixture at newly promoted Sheffield United on Sunday the 24rd of November. Sheffield United have been a surprise package this season thus far and are currently unbeaten in their last five Premier League games having shocked Arsenal 1-0 and comprehensively beating Burnley 3-0 in their last home game. A credible 1-1 draw at Tottenham just before the international break is an indication that Manchester United have a real test on their hands and their opponents will be looking to add another victory to their promising start to their season. Sheffield United are currently lying 5th on the league table and boast the second-best defence in the league and have claimed an impressive 17 points from their opening 12 league games to find themselves just eight points adrift of last season’s champions Manchester City. This is the first Premier League meeting between these two sides since 2007 when Manchester United claimed a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford. In fact, the Red Devils have not been beaten by the Blades since a 2-1 reverse in the FA Cup in 1993, and not in league competition since 1992 – also a 2-1 loss in Sheffield.
