Man United vs Sheffield United prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Premier League match

Manchester United are hoping for a return to the Premier League win column on Wednesday. 

The Red Devils have their best chance to secure victory as they host last-place Sheffield United at Old Trafford. Kickoff is set for 3:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local time. 

Man United have struggled to find top-four level form all season, and with 12 league losses on the season, the club is barely hanging on to a European place in the standings. Erik ten Hag’s side has won one match in its last five games in all competitions, with United needing penalties to overcome Coventry City in the FA Cup semifinal.

Now, Man United could leapfrog Newcastle in the standings and secure a top-seven finish and a Europa League place for next season to ensure that there will be some additional UEFA revenue coming in.

Sheffield United meanwhile are on their last legs, and relegation could be confirmed if they don’t pick up wins over Man United in midweek or Newcastle over the weekend. The Blades defense has given up 88 goals already, two away from what would be a record for a whole season, with five games left to go
