Gareth Taylor’s side kick-off our campaign in the competition with a meeting with the Blades on Sunday 29 January at 13:00 (UK).
And we’ll be aiming to go one better from last season’s dramatic 3-2 final defeat to Chelsea (AET) at Wembley at the end of the campaign.
City enter the tie buoyed by our progression into the semi-final of the Continental Cup last time out following a 6-0 victory over Bristol City.
The success at Ashton Gate extended our unbeaten run to 14 games in all competitions – including 12 wins.
Pauline Bremer hit a hat-trick and Laura Coombs was on target when City last faced Sheffield United, as we booked our place in the last-eight of the League Cup in January 2020 with a 4-0 success.
Our preparations continued ahead of the tie, sharpening our focus for the Blades in training.
