Preview + Form

A tricky matchup, but one has to back City continue the winning ways and being at a better spot than they were and a trophy already in tow, gives me confidence in a City win.

For Sheffield, a tough loss and emotional drain could put this one in peril early, how will they respond?

The key battle will be the forwards chosen vs a less than stellar defense on the other side. An interesting matchup is in tow. Can Alvarez get a goal?

Which team will come out in front?

City’s side have Kevin De Bruyne out while Doku, Haaland and Gomez are doubtful.

SU have Basham, Jebbison, Coulibaly, Egan, Davies, Ahmedhodzic and Hamer all doubtful or suspended.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-1 Sheffield United
