Predicted Sheffield United XI at Fulham: 4 changes, McBurnie and Burke return

Another week, and another must-win game for Sheffield United this evening as the Blades travel to London to face Fulham.

Following a miserable week which has included a 3-0 loss at West Ham, John Fleck being taken to hospital, and John Egan suffering a near season ending injury, Chris Wilder faces the task of dusting down his troops and getting them to go again.

Once again, selection issues hamper Wilder’s first XI picks. Egan is out, as is Fleck, while the strikers once again pose a problem for the Blades boss.


Sharp and McGoldrick started at West Ham but were both largely ineffective, albeit McGoldrick missing a couple of big chances. It could mean a return for Oli McBurnie, while Oliver Burke will also hope for his chance.

7 Players Who Had A Euros To Forget

Lys Mousset is still out working on his fitness, while Rhian Brewster is another who has struggled a bit this season.

Finally, we think George Baldock could make a return to the starting XI in place of Jayden Bogle, despite his good form of late.

Here, then, is our predicted Sheffield United XI for tonight’s clash with Fulham.
