The search for a Premier League win goes on for Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United, who welcome an in-form Manchester United to Bramall Lane this evening for what it poised to be a fiery encounter under the lights.
The Blades have just one point to their name after 12 matches played and find themselves in dire straits, rock bottom of the table and six points behind 19th-placed West Brom.
United meanwhile have four wins from their last five league matches, and enter the contest off the back of a derby stalemate against local rivals City. Victory tonight will move them up into fifth place in the division alongside Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.

And what have a fixture we have to wrap up the midweek action.
In one corner, a Sheffield United side in complete disarray, rock bottom of the table and yet to win a game all season.
Opposite, a Manchester United outfit who have come into something of a streak of form, with four wins in their last five and a hard-earned point in the famous derby.
All evidence points to a United win, which would take them up to fifth. Football, as we all well know, doesn’t quite work like that though.
