Michael Owen is backing Manchester United to secure a 1-0 win against a struggling Sheffield United side on Thursday night.
The Reds will be eager to get back to winning ways against Sheffield United who are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drew with Man City in the Manchester derby last time out, but after results on Tuesday night (Chelsea losing, City drawing again) this is a great opportunity to make up ground on the pacesetters.
United are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games. The last defeat was against Arsenal (1-0) at Old Trafford back in November. Since then they’ve beaten West Ham, Southampton, Everton, Newcastle and Brighton.
Sheffield United, on the other hand, have the worst home record in the top flight. They have lost all six of their home fixtures in the league this season.
Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen is backing the Reds to win 1-0 over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
“Plenty of people never gave Manchester United a chance in their match against City at the weekend,” Owen told BetVictor.
“It wasn’t a classic, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will most likely have taken a draw before kick-off.
“Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Sheffield United. They simply can’t buy a win at the moment.
“Being at home, I naturally see the Blades playing on the front foot here. If that materialises, it could play into United’s hands.
“I’ll be going for an away win and Manchester United to make it 10 wins on the bounce on the road.”
