Paul Merson has shared his prediction for Manchester City’s next Premier League match against Sheffield United.
In his recent Sportskeeda column where he analyzed and predicted the scores for this weekend’s Premier League fixtures, Paul Merson shared his thoughts on Manchester City’s match against Sheffield United.
“Manchester City win, period. It’s only going to be a question of how many goals they score in front of their home fans and it could get ugly for Sheffield United,” he stated in his column.
Given the current standings, City sits 28 points and 16 places ahead of the Blades, who are grappling with the challenges of being at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Despite the Blades having played one more league game than City, the Manchester club has scored 28 more goals and conceded 26 fewer goals. Considering these factors, especially Sheffield United’s recent 3-2 loss to Luton, Merson anticipates that City will secure another three points in the upcoming match.
Despite Merson’s confident prediction of a home victory, Manchester City should guard against complacency. United, fighting for survival, has demonstrated earlier in the season that they can be a formidable challenge to break down. The upcoming match requires City to approach it with focus and determination to secure the desired result.
