Predicted Sheffield United against Burnley: Jack O'Connell returns, choices up front

Sheffield United travel to Burnley today looking to build on a hugely impressive win over Spurs and capitalise on Wolves’ loss to Arsenal yesterday.

A win for Chris Wilder’s men would see them catapult back above the Gunners into seventh while putting them just two points shy of Wolves in sixth. Incidentally, Nuno Santo’s men still have to come to Bramall Lane before the end of the campaign.

However, a tough assignment at Turf Moor awaits today. Burnley themselves are in tenth place and a win for the Clarets would see them jump above the Blades in the table.

It’s all set to be a fiercely fought contest in Lancashire, then, as two honest, hard-working, English managers pit their wits against each other.

United ran out 3-0 winners last time in the PL. John Fleck was the star of the show that day but he’ll be missing from the action today. Wilder, then, has a decision on his hands over his starting XI, although options appear limited.

With that, here’s our predicted XI as the Blades meet Burnley today, where we hope to see a return to first-team action for Jack O’Connell.
