Manchester City will hope to consolidate their place atop the Premier League table when they play hosts to Sheffield United at the Etihad on Saturday.
City have now won each of their last 11 games across all competitions, with seven of those coming in the Premier League.
This run of results in the top-flight has taken Pep Guardiola’s side to the top of the table, a point ahead of neighbours Manchester United with a game in hand.
The Blades, on the other hand, have been the bottom dwellers in the Premier League pretty much since the get-go.
Wins have come at a premium for Chris Wilder and his men, although both of the victories have come in their last three outings in the competition.
These results have given Sheffield a glimmer of hope in their bid to miraculously escape the clutches of relegation, though they remain 10 points adrift of safety.
The reverse fixture, played at Bramall Lane back in October, ended in a 1-0 win for City courtesy a first-half goal by Kyle Walker.
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Foden, Hernandez, Guendogan, Mahrez, Silva, Sterling
Sheffield Utd XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale, Basham, Jagielka, Ampadu, Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens, McGoldrick, Burke
Kick off is at 16:00 (GMT +1).
