class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The visitors are clear favourites to record their third Premier League win of the season but we do not think they will rack up the goals on Saturday
Manchester City travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon to face Sheffield United in the Premier League with Pep Guardiola’s men aiming to get back to winning ways on the road.
The Citizens have drawn both of their last two away games in the league but are firm favourites against a side yet to win in six attempts this term.

Sheffield United vs Manchester City Team News
Sergio Aguero was the match-winner the last time the sides met but the Argentine is out with a thigh injury, while Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy are both also missing. Nathan Ake and Gabriel Jesus are doubts.
The hosts are with John Fleck, Jack O’Connell and Lys Mousset but should welcome back Max Lowe.
Sheffield United vs Manchester City Preview
Guardiola’s side have been in strong scoring form in the Champions League this season, yet domestically they have struggled in the final third with only one goal in each of their last three games.
The last time City did that was back in February 2016 and whilst their start to the current campaign has been somewhat underwhelming, last season’s runners up should still have too much for their opponents.
United are capable of keeping things relatively tight but are still failing to be rewarded, with four of their five losses this season by a single goal margin and they are yet to concede more than twice in any fixture.
They are likely to be beaten on Saturday once again but the South Yorkshire outfit should be able to keep the score down.
Sheffield United vs Manchester City Tips and Predictions
Backing City to win and score under 3.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83) looks like a tempting option, given that the Blues have failed to score more than three goals in any of their matches so far.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
