Follow all the action as Manchester United host Sheffield United in the Premier League this evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are unbeaten in their last 13 top-flight games and victory tonight will see them leapfrog arch-rivals Manchester City at the top of the table. United’s tremendous vein of form continued with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup fourth round last Sunday as Bruno Fernandes’s stunning free-kick settled a thrilling tie. Marcus Rashford was a doubt to make the squad after picking up a knock to his knee, however, he has since been passed fit.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s struggles continue with the Blades still rooted to the bottom of the table, already 12 points adrift of safety. They have at least gathered a few glimmers of momentum, though, with the FA Cup providing an unlikely spark to their season, with a third-round victory over Bristol Rovers followed by a first league win of the season against Newcastle. A narrow victory over Plymouth Argyle in the fourth round will have raised hopes again, but the Blades still desperately need to rediscover their edge up front, with just 10 goals in 19 league games so far this season.
