Sheffield United will be hoping the international break brings with it a change in their fortunes after their miserable start to life back in the Premier League. The Blades are rock-bottom on the table after a record joint worst start in the Premier League at this stage of the season that has seen them collect just a single point from their 8 matches thus far. The schedule hasn’t done them any favors as they welcome Man United to Bramall Lane in Saturday’s late kick-off. Pressure is mounting on coach Heckingbottom and he is currently the bookmaker’s favorite as the next coach to likely face the firing squad
Things haven’t been that much better with the visitors either. They needed a heroic performance from Scott McTominay who wrote his name in the Man United folklore with two injury-time goals after coming on as a sub to rescue the Red Devils from the jaws of defeat having trailed 1-0 to Brentford at Old Trafford until those dying minutes of the game. That win cooled some embers and growing discontent amongst the fanbase. They however still remain in midtable. Off the pitch, news of the withdrawal of Qatari billionaire Sheikh Jassim from the bidding exercise cast a dark shadow with the club now seemingly set to remain under the much-maligned Glazers in the foreseeable future.
This is a massive game for both of these teams. Whilst the home side are trying to get their footing in the league, the visitors are desperate to turn around their rather lackluster start to the season. We expect both teams to have a go at each other here and with increased goalmouth activity, we are bound to get a handful of corners. For our main Sheffield United vs Man United prediction, we are therefore picking at least 10 corners to be taken in this game.

Main tip: Over 9.5 Corners
Our Sheffield United vs Manchester United predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Over 9.5 Corners
These two teams have both had a rather deflating start to the season and they are both looking to turn things around after this international break. Pressure is mounting on both coaches to turn a new page or face the hangman’s noose.
With this in mind, we fancy both teams to go all out here to try and get all three points that would, albeit momentarily quiet the noise. The visitors have had 7 corners by themselves in each of their last 5 matches while the hosts have had at least 4 in three of their last 4 home games! We expect the trend to replicate in this game and we are backing this game to have at least 10 corner kicks taken and you can get terrific odds for this market at 1xBet

Prediction 2: Man United Win
Man United have absolutely pummelled Sheffield in this fixture winning 8 of their last 10 H2H encounters. They have also generally had a very impressive record against promoted sides. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 12 encounters against promoted teams (11W, 1D) and have actually won the last 9 straight such matches. They struggled for long stretches against Brentford last time out but they kept pushing and ultimately got their miraculous win right at the death. Could that dramatic win trigger the turning point for the Red Devils? That remains to be seen. Bookies are favouring them to get all three points at their disposal here and we see no reason to doubt that. We are therefore picking Manchester United to win this match and we recommend very competitive odds for this option available at Paripesa.

Prediction 3: Over 3.5 Bookings
Whilst this may look as an “easy” game on paper, the reality may be far from it. Both teams have everything to play for here and we expect them to both come out and play with a sense of urgency and deperation as they both try to get themselves out of the quagmire they are in at the moment.
Games such as this tend to be overly physical and the potential of tensions spilling over and cynical challenges from either side are certainly abound. The centre referee assigned for this game is Michael Oliver and he tends to quick to jump to his little book in such situations. exists way or when time is running out to make any meaningful change to the outcome. With this in mind, we feel there is great value in backing at least 4 bookings to be dished out in this game as our final Sheffield United vs Manchester United prediction
