Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews today’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Sheffield United. It is a crucial match for Pep Guardiola’s side as it presents them with the chance to keep pressure on league leaders Liverpool.
It promises to be a tough encounter for the world champions. Sheffield United will be determined to put in a good showing after their recent 3-2 loss to Luton Town. The loss means Chris Wilder’s side sit bottom of the Premier League with 9 points from 19 games. They’ll be desperate for a good performance and will no doubt dig in to keep themselves in the game. With the Blades desperate to give themselves some hope in the relegation battle City will be expecting a determined Sheffield United to show up at the Etihad. The earlier meeting between the two sides saw City get a hard fought 2-1 win at Bramall Lane.
For Manchester City, they’ll be looking to keep their momentum rolling. They will come into the game after three consecutive wins in all competitions. Two wins at the FIFA Club World Cup and the midweek win over Everton have seen the champions return to form. With Phil Foden putting in an inspirational display at Goodison Park he and his teammates will be keen to continue their good form. The season is now at the point where traditionally Pep Guardiola’s side has begun to make a move. A win over Sheffield United will keep their recent momentum going.
On paper, it should be a routine win for City. Games aren’t won on paper so a tough test awaits. Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney gives his thoughts on all of this and more in the video below.
