Sheffield United will go in search of a first Premier League win of the season when they host Manchester United this evening.

The Blades have picked up just one point from their opening 12 matches of the campaign, scoring five and conceding 21.

It is also seven losses on the bounce for Chris Wilder’s men, a run they will need to halt abruptly if they are to give themselves any chance of staying up this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have gone five league games without a defeat, a run that stretches back to their loss against Arsenal on November 1.

But a dismal Champions League group stage exit combined with one of the dullest Manchester derbies in recent memory last weekend seems to have heaped pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer once more.

You get the feeling it is a game both need to win as we enter a hectic Christmas schedule.
