Predicted Sheffield United XI v West Brom: Sharp and McGoldrick back, potential Stevens return

A huge game awaits Sheffield United this evening as they host West Brom at Bramall Lane in a must-win fixture.

The Blades come into the game in good form. Despite two defeats from three in the Premier League, United have won twice in the FA Cup and beaten Newcastle and Manchester United in the last few weeks.

Chris Wilder’s men enter in a good frame of mind, then, while Albion will also fancy their chances after adding a few new players in recent days.

For Wilder, he faces some big selection calls. Up top is once again the big one. At The Hawthorns, United created so many chances but lost 1-0. It could well be the perfect night for Billy Sharp then, who is still arguably the Blades’ best finisher and is in decent form. David McGoldrick is also likely to get back his starting spot.

Finally, left wing-back remains an issue. Kean Bryan might well get the nod but Wilder has said he is keeping the fitness of both Enda Stevens and Ben Osborn close to his chest. If Stevens, in particular, is fit, we expect to see the Irishman back in the fold.
