Is Manchester United vs Sheffield Utd on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture


Manchester United host Sheffield United this evening as the 20-time English champions set out to go top of the Premier League once again. 

Man United fell to second last night as neighbours Man City tore apart relegation-threatened West Brom 5-0, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players can climb to the summit of the table here with a win against Chris Wilder’s men.

Man United carry a lot of momentum into the match at Old Trafford, with four wins and one draw in their last five top-flight outings and fresh from a victory over rivals Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup in their most recent performance.
