SHF Vs MCI Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sheffield United continue to remain winless in the league to find themselves embroiled in the relegation fracas.
In the midst of a turmoil, the last thing Sheffield United wanted to be engulfed in the gruelling and testing slate of encounters they find themselves in the middle up. After taking on Liverpool the last time around, the club today welcomes Manchester City, a tie which akin their foregone contest will test them to the fore.
While Sheffield United’s winless run continued after being downed 2-1 by Liverpool, what is set to have imbued some kind of momentum in the team’s ranks is their showing on the day. For the first time this season, Sheffield United looked up for the side as they matched Liverpool every step of the way.
It was a showing reminiscent of their 2019-20 campaign, a gusty and gritty showing the side knows it will need to emulate today as well. Up against a Manchester City side hungry of points, Sheffield United know they need to defend with every last bit of their resources if they are to have even a chance of pulling off a point today.
SHF Vs MCI Fantasy Probable Winner
Sheffield United though aren’t the only club in the middle of a ruckus at the moment. Things have been far from perfect for Manchester City either with the team being held to a 1-1 draw against West Ham last week.
They did redeem themselves with a 3-0 routing of Marseille and that performance should offer them the much needed impetus to pull off a win today.

Ever since being brought in by Sheffield United, Aaron Ramsdale has shown why the club shelved out a staggering amount for him. While it was never going to be easy to occupy the void left by Henderson, Ramsdale has done exactly that with a string of saves in his kitty.
Much like last season, City have once again suffered due to their defensive issues. The side has been largely off the mark, struggling to fathom meaningful defensive performances to sit as low as 13th in the league.
However, with a cleansheet in the Champions League and with Sheffield United largely being listless in attack, City have a solid chance of raking in a cleansheet today. It sees us opt for a triad from the side, one comprising of Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker.
Ethan Ampadu is set to be shifted further up the park into the CDM slot for this one, an escalated role which makes him our representative from the home side.
Getting the go ahead for City’s Champions League match, Kevin de Bruyne showed why he’s the heart of this Manchester City side. He had an instant and telling impact on the side, registering two assists in the contest to make him a must have pick for us.
Phil Foden scored against West Ham to see us opt for him as well from the side along with Riyadh Mahrez who has the one goal this season. Elsewhere, Sander Berge put in a real shift against Liverpool, one where he made his presence felt in both attack and defence to score a penalty on the day.
Scorer of the one goal for the home side, striker David McBurnie completes the set of picks from the club. Wrapping up our setup is Raheem Sterling from City given the two goals and assist he has pulled off for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His side’s top scorer, Raheem will captain our team for today while Kevin is the vice-captain.
Aaron, Dias, Walker, Cancelo, Ethan, Foden, Raheem, Mahrez, Berge, Raheem, David
