Man United will be motivated to secure all three points, as their draw against Tottenham at the weekend saw them fall five points behind fourth-place Chelsea. The Red Devils are still clinging to a Champions League berth, but only four points separates them between fifth and ninth place.
The Old Trafford faithful will be calling for the midfield partnership of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, who were outstanding after the Frenchman came on as a sub against Spurs.

The visitors, meanwhile, sit in seventh place following this past week’s slate, just two points behind Manchester United, so the significance of this fixture cannot be understand. The Blades have been in poor form since the restart, as they were blitzed 3-0 by Newcastle on Sunday and only notched a point against 19th-place Aston Villa a few days earlier.
The Manchester boys appear to have the momentum heading into this match, but it would be foolish to count out the underdogs, who have stunned fans with a campaign that hs seen them punching far above their weight after earning promotion from the second-tier Championship.
Do yourselves a favor and tune in to see how it all unfolds.
