Premier League confirm referees for Sheffield United vs Manchester United



| Last Updated:


Manchester United will be looking to kick on in the Premier League after multiple poor performances under Erik ten Hag so far in the Premier League this season.

Manchester United have lost four of their opening eight Premier League fixtures so far this campaign, sitting 10th in the table and losing their opening two Champions League ties.

It is a position that has caused significant trouble at Old Trafford, with the squad also going through an injury crisis, with Casemiro just the latest in the line of absentees after the Brazilian suffered an ankle issue while away with the Canary Squad.
