Bramall Lane.

Sheffield Utd v Man United: The essential info

Manchester United travel to Bramall Lane for the first time in 13 years on Sunday, for a Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

The Reds headed into the international break on the back of five wins in the last six games in all competitions, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will no doubt be hoping to resume that winning streak when returning to action this weekend.

Three points would take the Reds above Sheffield United in the table, ahead of a busy schedule in both the league and cups.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Sunday’s match…
