Sheffield United’s shocking record vs Manchester City

Prior to Saturday’s meeting, a number of statistics highlighting Sheffield United’s awful record vs the Manchester outfit have emerged.

  • Manchester City have never lost a Premier League game against Sheffield United (W8 D3), winning each of the past six in a row.
  • Sheffield United have never scored in five Premier League away games against City - only Birmingham (seven against Manchester United) have visited a side more without ever scoring in the competition.
  • Sheffield United have lost their past nine league games against reigning top-flight champions since beating Leeds United 2-1 in April 1993. Away from home, they’ve lost their past 11 such games since beating Arsenal 1-0 in August 1971.
  • Sheffield United remain without a win away from home in the Premier League this season, though they did hold Aston Villa to a draw last time out on the road. They’ve only scored more than once in one of their past 39 top-flight away games (18 goals in total), beating Manchester United 2-1 in January 2021.
