Dimitar Berbatov is backing Sheffield United to hold Manchester United to a draw at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils have won two of their last three Premier League games to hoist themselves up to seventh place in the table before the international break.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have still struggled on the road in the current campaign after losing 1-0 to Bournemouth in their last away Premier League fixture.

Manchester United will start their top-flight clash a point adrift of promoted side Sheffield United after the Blades’ impressive start to the season.

Sheffield United are in fifth position in the Premier League table following a respectable return of four victories and three stalemates.

Former Manchester United striker Berbatov doesn’t believe that the Red Devils have enough to beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

“What the **** are Sheffield United doing in fifth place in the Premier League, can someone explain that to me!?” Berbatov told Betfair.

“Joking aside, they are playing some really good football, their 3-5-2 formation is slick, going to five at the back when someone is attacking them is so effective, they are a solid team and for me they are one of the surprises of the season.

“Of course I want United to win, but sometimes you have to look at things from the perspective of how things are, it will be a tough game and I think both teams will get a point.”

Sheffield United are one of the Premier League’s form teams following a five-game unbeaten run to hoist themselves into the European places.

The promoted side are looking to win three consecutive top-flight home fixtures for the first time since August 1993.

Manchester United have only managed to win three of their last 10 games on the road in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are looking to win back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since March.
