Man City take on Championship opposition Sheffield Utd in this FA Cup semi-final. The favorite for the Man City vs Sheffield Utd live stream is clear, but the Blades have already proved capable of upsetting the odds in this tournament — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN
Man City’s route to this FA Cup semi-final has been far from an easy one. The reigning champions of England had already dispatched top Premier League opposition Chelsea and Arsenal followed by Bristol City and then Burnley in the quarter-final. Now Pep Guardiola’s men arrive at Wembley to face another Championship team: Sheffield Utd.
For the Blades whatever the score it’s sure to be another memorable day out in a cup campaign that's already been full of them. The highlight of their cup run to date was surely eliminating Tottenham at Bramall Lane, but a memorial 3-3 draw with Wrexham was also a cracking game (Sheffield comfortably won the replay match 3-1). While there’s no denying that Sheffield Utd are serious underdogs against the might of Man City but they will travel down to the capital in good spirits.
Strangely, there might be a feeling in both camps that they have bigger fish to fry. Man City are attempting to chase down Arsenal to retain their league title and also preparing for a Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid, whereas Sheffield Utd are in a battle to achieve automatic promotion to the Premier League alongside already-promoted Burnley.
Pep may opt to rotate his Man City squad to keep the heavy hitters fresh for the PL and CL games ahead, but even City’s second string is absolutely stacked with talent. Plus, if first-teamers like Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne feature, Sheffield Utd may just have to settle for keeping the score down as much as possible.
Of course, a cup upset is not entirely out of the question and manager Paul Heckingbottom would become a Sheffield Utd legend if he’s able to mastermind a victory over such a world-class side at the home of football.
Whatever happens, the Man City vs Sheffield Utd live stream will be a match you won't want to miss, and we’ve got all the details you need to tune in down below.
