Manchester City are preparing to face Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday, October 31. Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

Lawrenson expects the game to end with City’s 2-0 win.

“Manchester City got a good win in the Champions League in France on Tuesday but Marseille were not up to much.

“This will be a bigger test. Sheffield United are still without a win in 2020-21 but they created lots of chances at Anfield in their defeat by Liverpool last time out.

“That was arguably the Blades’ best performance of the season so far. I think they will be pretty direct again here, and they can cause City problems.

“Ruben Dias has looked pretty solid in the City defence since he arrived at the end of last month, but this will be a decent test for him.

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 0-2
