It’s rare that a team progresses to a cup final and comes away looking like the losing side. Man Utd did dispatch Coventry City and book their spot in the FA Cup final against local rivals Man City, but they made a real ordeal of what should have been a simple win. 3-0 up after 70 minutes, a collapse in the final 20 minutes sent the game to extra time, and Coventry had a late winner ruled out by the tightest of margins. Man Utd won on penalties but it was no victory to savor, and it leaves Erik ten Hag’s position starting to look fairly untenable. They must win here, and win well, to quieten the growing number of fans demanding change in the summer.

Sheffield Utd are now just waiting for the inevitable and their relegation to be confirmed. The Blades are 10 points off safety with five games to play. It’s technically possible they could survive but for a side that’s won three games all season, calling their chances of avoiding the drop slim would be a huge understatement. If Sheffield Utd were to lose here, a further defeat on Saturday against Newcastle would seal their return to the Championship.

Here's how they line up:

Man Utd: Onana, Dalot, Maguire, Casemiro, Wan-Bissaka, Mainoo, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho, Hojlund.

Sheffield Utd: Foderingham, Trusty, Ahmedhodzic, Holgate, Brooks, Osborn, Arblaster, Hamer, Bogle, Archer, Brereton.

Man Utd vs Sheffield Utd is a chance for the Red Devils to change the mood around the club and also put serious pressure on the teams around them challenging for a top-six finish. Here are all the details you need to watch Man Utd vs Sheffield Utd online and from anywhere.
