Manchester United v Sheffield United: Is the game on TV? Kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Manchester United entertain Sheffield United in the Premier League on Wednesday after sealing a spot in the FA Cup final last weekend.

United boss Erik ten Hag finds himself under increased pressure after his side threw away a 3-0 lead against Championship outfit Coventry on Sunday, before winning the subsequent penalty shoot-out.

The Dutchman will be hoping his team can put in a better showing against bottom club Sheffield United, who are 10 points adrift of safety with just five games to play.
