Predicted Sheffield United XI v West Ham: Ampadu starts, Lundstram dropped

The Blades host West Ham tomorrow as United look to finally get their first three points of the season on the board at Bramall Lane.

Chris Wilder’s men took four points off the Hammers last season. Lys Mousset nicked a point away from The Lane, while Oli McBurnie and the help of VAR ensured a memorable home win against the Hammers.

For once this season, Wilder looks to have a near full squad to pick from barring a few miracles late in the day. Sander Berge is the biggest worry thanks to Norway’s Covid1-19 policies, while Rhian Brewster and John Egan should feature despite knocks.

Lys Mousset and John Fleck are also available for selection, although it remains to be seen whether the French striker will be involved. Fleck, however, should go straight into the XI.

That could mean no place at all for contract rebel John Lundstram, while Ethan Ampadu could push for a start on the left side of United’s troubled defence.

With that, here’s our predicted XI for Sheffield United as we prepare to host David Moyes’ West Ham tomorrow afternoon.
