It’s a wet and windy morning in Sheffield as United prepare to host Blackpool at Bramall Lane in the Sky Bet Championship, and we’ve got all the team news for you.
Both sides come into the game in good form. United saw off Barnsley last weekend to go within three points of the playoffs. Blackpool, meanwhile, are in fine form themselves, winning three of the last four.
Neil Critchley’s side are giving the Championship a real go. They’ll see a trip to The Lane as a big day, and it’s a huge scalp for them if they can indeed see United off.
For Slavisa Jokanovic, it’s a game he’ll expect his team to win. For all Blackpool’s form and endeavour, United should have enough quality in the squad to see them off. But you never know in the Championship, and the Serbian must once again select the right team.
Sheffield United Team News
It’s much of the same for United really. The huge bonus is that Morgan Gibbs-White is back from suspension, while Lys Mousset came through a full week of training unscathed again. The Frenchman, then, is likely to get the nod in attack.
Sander Berge remains away from the team. Jokanovic confirmed the big Norwegian is likely to be out until after the international break. Oliver Burke was back in training, while Luke Freeman is also close to a return.
In defence, George Baldock is likely to keep his spot ahead of Jayden Bogle again.
Sheffield United Predicted XI
The biggest decision for Jokanovic is who does he take out for the returning Gibbs-White? Billy Sharp might also fancy his chances of making the XI again.
Here, then, is our predicted XI, as we see Iliman Ndiaye being the man to make way and Oli McBurnie getting another chance to shine.
