Manchester City are likely to forsake the Premier League title challenge at some stage, with Liverpool realistically going to become champions, although Pep Guardiola’s side are still going full throttle in the top flight for now.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Their recent 6-1 demolition of Aston Villa illustrated that the Citizens are still the most devastating team in England and possibly Europe, with the north-west side now heading to Bramall Lane on Tuesday night where they could produce more fireworks.

Riyad Mahrez has earned a run of games in the first team and the Algerian is shining brightly, while Guardiola has also successfully deployed Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus in the same team.

Perhaps the visitors won’t find life as easy against a Sheffield United team renowned for making things difficult for opponents and we only have to reflect on the clash against Liverpool who were largely thwarted a few months ago.

The Blades will be more defensively robust than Villa were, although Chris Wilder’s team are likely to suffer from two distinct problems. Firstly, they will be short of possession against opponents who are excellent at keeping the ball.

Secondly, when the home side are in possession of the ball, one wonders whether the Yorkshire side can conjure any meaningful chances, with United managing a little over one goal per home game on average.

Wilder’s game plan will be to keep things tight but playing for a goalless draw against Manchester City looks like a busted flush considering that the visitors average three goals per away match.

A simple bet looks like City to win this match to nil. While Guardiola’s side have shipped fifteen goals on the road this term, they are capable of shutting out their opponents on this occasion.
