Where to watch Manchester United vs Sheffield United live on January 27, 2021

January 26, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red Devils will host bottom-placed Sheffield United at Old Trafford as they look to extend their impressive unbeaten run in the league.

Match preview

Manchester United will welcome Sheffield United to Old Trafford on Wednesday night and will look to regain top spot on the Premier League table with yet another win. The Red Devils enter the mid-week's encounter in second place with cross-town rivals Manchester City climbing into No.1 position with a resounding 5-0 win over West Brom. Victory over the Blades will put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side right back in front with a two-point advantage and it is no secret that they will go all out to get a good result against Chris Wilder's struggling side.

United approach the upcoming Premier League encounter soaring high in confidence, after successfully eliminating Liverpool from the FA Cup via a 3-2 scoreline. The weekend's win meant that the Merseysiders have failed to get a win in each of their last six visits to Old Trafford. While the venue has not really been a real fortress for the Red Devils in the Premier League in recent seasons, they will be looking to build on the massive win to turn their sacred arena into a feared ground once more.

In the ongoing campaign, they have secured four wins from nine outings from the venue, losing two while drawing the remaining three. Needless to say, since losing 1-0 to Arsenal in November 2020, Solskjaer's side remain unbeaten in all the five home game's they have played since. In the grand scheme of things, they have successfully picked up at least a point in their last 13 league appearances since the defeat against the Gunners. Coming up against a Sheffield United side that sits at the base of the league table, the Red Devils will fancy their chances of cruising to another resounding win.

During the first round, the Blades handed Solskjaer's men a late scare in their 3-2 defeat at Bramall Lane and, as a result, will be eager to top that up by upsetting the odds this time around. However, that will require massive effort with their form looking all but convincing enough. They will enter Wednesday's clash at Old Trafford off the back of a poor run that has seen them manage just one win in 19 league outings this season. This achieved via a 1-0 scoreline against a 10-man Newcastle United side. Since then, Chris Wilder's men have gone on to suffer a 3-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

Prior to their first and only victory of the league season so far, Sheffield United had managed two draws in 17 outings while losing the remaining 15 - eight of which were in succession. Against this backdrop, they are far from being the bookies' favorites although they enter the upcoming clash with the Red Devil off the back of a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup fourth round.

Team news

Manchester United could be without forward Marcus Rashford after he picked up an injury in the FA Cup win over Liverpool.
