Match Stats
Manchester City:
Manchester City, fresh off winning their first Club World Cup, bounced back in the Premier League with a 3-1 victory against Everton. Despite trailing 1-0, goals from Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez, and Bernardo Silva secured the win, placing City back in the top four and within five points of league leaders Liverpool. While City has experienced defensive vulnerabilities, they have won five of their last six games. In their upcoming clash with Sheffield United, City aims to extend their unbeaten streak in the Premier League against the Blades, having won the last six encounters and losing the final league fixture only once in the last 22 years.

Sheffield United:
Sheffield United, meanwhile, faced a setback in their quest for survival with a 3-2 defeat against Luton Town. Despite an initial lead, the Blades couldn't hold on, marking their 14th loss of the season. With just nine points from 19 matches, Sheffield United remains at the bottom of the table, seven points adrift of safety. Their defensive struggles, conceding the most goals in the league (47) and failing to keep a clean sheet away from home, pose significant challenges. While historical meetings with City have been challenging, Sheffield United has shown resilience, losing by a one-goal margin in five of their last six encounters, providing a glimmer of hope for a competitive display at the Etihad on Saturday.

Manchester City faces concerns over the availability of John Stones, who suffered an ankle injury in the midweek win against Everton. Guardiola expressed uncertainty about Stones' condition, making him a significant doubt for the Sheffield United clash. De Bruyne, Doku, and Dias, who missed the Everton match, are undergoing assessments for their fitness. Guardiola remains hopeful for Erling Haaland's return in January. A potential comeback for Dias might see him replace Stones, while Gvardiol could contend for a starting role. In midfield, Lewis and Kovacic may replace Nunes, with Bernardo, Foden, and Grealish supporting central striker Alvarez. Sheffield United faces injury setbacks with Basham, Egan, Davies, and Jebbison sidelined, and Ahmedhodzic and Hamer suspended. McAtee is ineligible to face his parent club, and Bogle returns from suspension, potentially starting at right wing-back in a five-man defense. Norwood, Souza, and Brooks could form the midfield trio, while Archer and McBurnie lead the attack.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Dias, Ake; Lewis, Rodri; Bernardo, Foden, Grealish; Alvarez

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Foderingham; Bogle, Baldock, Robinson, Trusty, Lowe; Souza, Norwood, Brooks; Archer, McBurnie
