Sheffield United look set to include Frankie Maguire, Iliman Ndiaye, and Lys Mousset as part of their squad to face Liverpool this evening.
Chris Wilder is faced with a huge selection dilemma for the big clash at Bramall Lane. A number of first-team players are out of action, meaning Wilder may go for a change of shape and, it appears, include some young players in the squad.
A video from the club released just now shows the likes of Mousset and Ndiaye checking in for the game. It’s a suggestion that both are likely to be involved off the bench.
Maguire, meanwhile, was pictured in a separate post from the club just a small amount of time earlier on.
Of course, these players could have simply arrived to be part of the day for what is a big fixture with the Premier League champions. However, it could also indicate we are likely to see some fresh faces in our squad.
Sheffield United turn to youth against Liverpool
We reported earlier today that signs suggested Chris Wilder could go with young some players in his squad against the Reds and it looks to be the case.
Kyron Gordon is another one who could make the cut this evening. Especially, given United’s worries in the defensive area.
Having Mousset back is a big boost. He is someone who can genuinely make an impact on proceedings. While for the younger players, they’ll simply relish the chance of being around the first-team, not to mention the fact it’s against one of England’s very best teams.
