Sheffield United is set to host Manchester United at Bramall Lane this evening, with the hope that a victory could serve as the catalyst they need to kick-start their season. The Blades currently find themselves winless and at the bottom of the table, making three points a significant morale booster.
On the other hand, Manchester United is also in dire need of a win, albeit for different reasons. With only four wins from their eight matches this season, Erik ten Hag is feeling the pressure due to the team’s below-par start. Meanwhile, Paul Heckingbottom and his squad aim to capitalise on the visitors’ inconsistencies and secure a win in front of their home fans at Bramall Lane.
Speaking on the Overlap with Gary Neville, Roy Keane not only predicts a victory for his former club but also anticipates a comfortable win with no issues in finding the net.
Keane stated: “[Manchester] United all day. I’m going to say, I’ll give one up. Probably go three, or even 4-1. United fans travel well. They’ll have a great craic with the pubs on the way over. You know what, 4-1, it’s going to be one of those nights.”
In contrast, former Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler believes that Sheffield United will cause Manchester United problems and add to their already existing pressure.
