Sheffield United take on Wrexham in the FA Cup this evening in one of the more attractive ties of the fourth round.

A tasty home tie with Tottenham awaits the winner, and after a brilliant 3-3 draw last time out, it really could be anyones.

Of course, Ryan Reynolds brings the Hollywood glamour to the clash, albeit he won’t be at Bramall Lane this evening according to reports.

On the field, United will be hoping for a simple night. FA Cup magic took over last time but on paper, the Blades should have enough to comfortably see off the National League side.

Paul Heckingbottom will make changes to the starting XI but admitted it’s likely to come from the same group that travelled to Rotherham.

Young strikers Daniel Jebbison and Will Osula will miss out through suspension and injury respectively. In midfield, fellow youngster Oliver Arblaster is also working his way back after being ill.

The likes of Ciaran Clark could come back into the fold to build their minutes up. Up top, Billy Sharp will surely get the nod with Ndiaye or McBurnie rested. Ismaila Coulibaly is also pushing for a start after being involved in the last few weeks.

John Fleck is working his way back but is unlikely to be risked. There could well be a debut for teenager Louie Marsh though. He was on the bench at Rotherham and could get the nod tonight.

Predicted Sheffield XI v Wrexham

Heckingbottom has to use the squad the best he can ahead of a crucial run of Championship games. The Blades cannot afford injuries to key players and the likes of Ndiaye, McBurnie, Bogle and Lowe could all get rests.

With that, we think Coulibaly will get the nod in midfield while Marsh will feature at some point. Experienced heads like Chris Basham and Sharp should also play.

Here, then, is our predicted Sheffield United XI to face Wrexham in the FA Cup this evening.
