Man City have continued to struggle without Haaland and De Bryune, winning only two of their last five PL matches. Will the Cityzens end the year with a win? Here are the best free Man City vs Sheffield United predictions.

Total match goals – Over 3.5 Goals

The first Man City vs Sheffield United prediction is a bet on the total team goals and we are tipping at least 4 goals in this PL clash. Despite the absence of key players, Man City remains a high-scoring side.  They have scored at least two goals in their last 6 games across all competitions while Sheffield only failed to score in one of their last four Premier League matches. Bet on the game to end with at least 4 goals.

Half-time/Full-time prediction- Man City to win both halves

Manchester City are by far the better side in this PL matchup against Sheffield. The Cityzens have never lost a match to Sheffield United in the last 10 meetings, 8 of which were City wins.  The odds of 1.10 to win the game with a probability of 91% is not the best price to bet on, but backing Man City to win both halves should fetch some modest betting odds for this game.

Correct score prediction – 3-1 to Man City

As we have already indicated, Man City remains a threat offensively, so we think they will win this game massively but scoring at least 3 goals. We predict a 3-1 scoreline in favour of Guardiola's men.
