Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Sheffield United (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


David Coote will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash against Sheffield United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola’s side conclude the year with a Premier League meeting with Sheffield United, as Manchester City look for their first win at the Etihad Stadium since early November, after successive draws against Liverpool, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

The recently-crowned World Champions came from behind to beat Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening, as second-half goals from Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez and Bernardo Silva secured a vital three points on Merseyside.

Manchester City moved to within five points of Liverpool with victory, and could move to within two points of Jurgen Klopp’s side with a win over the Blades.

Sheffield United are currently bottom of the Premier League table, with just two wins all season, and suffered a late 2-1 loss to Manchester City at Bramall Lane in August.
