Manchester United vs Sheffield United


Sheffield United have lost three of their previous four matches and are bottom of the Premier League, 10 points from safety with just five games remaining. The Blades faced 19th-placed Burnley at Bramall Lane in their last fixture and created an impressive 2.43 xG (expected goals). However, they failed to make the most of their early opportunities and got thrashed 4-1, becoming the first side in Premier League history to concede 50 or more goals at home in a single campaign. The loss to their closest relegation rivals means the visitors are winless in their last nine top-flight outings and will need a miracle to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

Manchester United were involved in a classic FA Cup semi-final in their last outing, letting a 3-0 lead slip against Championship side Coventry City to draw 3-3 before beating the Sky Blues 4-2 on penalties to set up an intriguing final against rivals Manchester City. Erik ten Hag's men will now turn their attention back to the Premier League, where they are winless in their last four games since a 2-0 triumph over Everton. The Red Devils' poor run of form means they are almost guaranteed to miss Champions League football next season, sitting in seventh place, 16 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa with only six fixtures remaining.
