The Premier League Title winners from last season will be travelling to South Yorkshire to face Sheffield United on Sunday. The hosts will be looking forward to scoring their first win of the new season of the League and the visitors will be looking forward to continuing their winning momentum and gaining some away points.
Sheffield United had a disappointing start to the new season of the league as they faced two consecutive losses. Football betting sites have EPL odds with them on their websites.
Manchester City are continuing their momentum from last season as they have scored two consecutive wins in the new season.
The hosts travelled to the City ground to Nottingham Forest. It was an unexpected start as the defence was unable to stop the attack of the Forest in the 3rd minute and conceded a goal. The Blades took some time to bounce and their new signing Gustavo Hamer equalized the fixture in the 48th minute.
The second half was neck to neck but at the dying moments in the 89th minute, the Blades conceded another goal and lost the fixture. Sheffield United will have to work hard on their defence considering the strategic attack of the Citizens.
Fleck, Brewster, Coulibaly, Norrington-Davis, Bogle Ben Slimane, Jebbison, McBurnie, Baldock and Lowe are currently recovering from their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Foderingham (GK), Robinson, Egan, Lowe, Ahmedhodžić, Norwood, Osborn, Hamer, Souza, Traoré & Osula
The Citizens hosted Newcastle in their previous fixture and a goal from the Argentinian - Julian Alvarez in the 31st minute proved to be the match-winner for the team. With possession of 59%, the Citizens controlled the game and did a fine job with the defence.
As they travel to Bramall Lane, the team will be hoping for Alvarez to continue the momentum and score goals and for Haaland to come back in action.
De Bruyne and Stones are suffering from illness and might not travel to face Sheffield.
Predicted Lineup: Ederson (GK), Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol, Kovačić, Grealish, Rodri, Foden, Haaland & Álvarez
Sheffield United are struggling to boost some confidence in their defence and the Citizens will get the benefit of the same. Manchester City has a strong attacking system and at the same time a good depth in the defence. We predict a win for Manchester City on Sunday.
