Predicted Sheffield United lineup to face Derby County

Championship leaders Sheffield United travel to Derby to face Frank Lampard’s Derby County today. Chris Wilder’s men are on top of the league and are looking good for Premier League promotion at this rate.

In the last five games, the Blades have won four and drawn the other, which shows the kind of form they are in. They are facing a Derby side who are in decent enough form, just a point behind the playoff spots. Hence, it won’t be easy for the leaders to come out with a win from this game.
