Manchester United appear to have made a big omission in highlighting the Blades danger men ahead of Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men travel to Bramall Lane looking to leapfrog Sheffield United in the table. The Blades currently occupy fifth place. The Red Devils, meanwhile, sit two places and one point behind.
It’s all set to be an exciting clash at the home of the Blades. The Sky cameras will be there to capture all the key moments too as Chris Wilder looks to continue building his and his side’s reputation.
There are going to be some key battles during the game. As well as key battles, there will be certain individuals who both teams will be highlighting as dangers.
However, have Manchester United possibly overlooked the Blades’ key men? A look at their official website suggests they may have just done that.
Who have Manchester United highlighted as key men for the Blades
While the Red Devils’ site isn’t far off in its assumptions, they are missing a trick.
They have plumped for Simon Moore, Jack O’Connell, John Lundstram, and Lys Mousset as key men for the Blades. And while these are admirable picks and excellent players in their own right, Solskjaer’s men might have overlooked United’s most important player.
That man, of course, is David McGoldrick. Despite not hitting the back of the net yet, the former Nottingham Forest and Ipswich striker has been integral to the Blades.
He is developing quite the partnership with the aforementioned Mousset. McGoldrick has also won plenty of praise from Blades fans this season.
David McGoldrick will be key for Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon. His ability to drop deep and take defenders with him will be vital to the attacking play of the home side.
With Scott McTominay missing, Man United will need to think carefully about how they handle McGoldrick.
Manchester United will have done their homework on the Blades but their fans will hope that Solskjaer and his staff have identified the danger McGoldrick brings.
