Manchester United will be eager to maintain the momentum they gained just before the international break, thanks to their dramatic injury-time comeback against Brentford. In a remarkable Alex Ferguson-style resurgence, Scott McTominay scored crucial goals in the 93rd and 97th minutes, marking an emotional weekend as it coincided with the passing of Alex’s late wife, Lady Cathy Ferguson. However, United continue to grapple with a persistent issue throughout the season – injuries, especially in their defensive ranks.
On the other hand, Sheffield United finds themselves languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table, having not secured a single win and only managing one draw so far. Their defensive struggles have been glaringly evident, epitomised by their devastating 8-0 defeat to Newcastle at the end of September.

Manchester United and Sheffield United have not faced each other since the 2020/2021 season. During that season, Manchester United secured a victory when they played away against Sheffield United, despite suffering a subsequent loss when they faced Sheffield United at their home stadium. In the match held at Bramall Lane just before Christmas, Manchester United initially fell behind by one goal, but a remarkable performance from Marcus Rashford, who scored twice, and a goal from Anthony Martial, allowed Manchester United to stage a comeback. However, in a surprising turn of events at the end of January, Sheffield United managed to stun the Old Trafford crowd by defeating Manchester United with a score of 2-1.
