Sheffield United vs Bristol City Predictions: Sheffield United line-up

After a fantastic result against Leeds United before the international break, Sheffield United will be aiming to keep their winning form going when they face Bristol City at Bramall Lane this Saturday.

After the success at Elland Road, Chris Wilder’s men are currently second in the table, just four points behind leaders Norwich City. Hence, they are in with a real chance of getting automatically promoted to the Premier League this summer.

This weekend, the Blades are up against a Bristol side who are currently ninth in the table and haven’t won a league game in five. Thus, we can expect some sort of resurgence from them. All in all, a decent game is on the cards.

Team News

Gary Madine got sent off against Brentford and this is the second of the three-match suspension. Jake Wright is back in training and it is up to the manager whether to select him in the squad or not.

Probable Sheffield United XI

Formation: 3-5-2

Manager: Chris Wilder

Dean Henderson (GK)

The loanee from Manchester United has done a great job in goal for the Blades and he continues to be a certain starter in league games.

George Baldock (RWB)

His energy up and down the pitch is very contagious to the team. Baldock is a must-starter for this game.

Martin Cranie (RCB)

He did well against Leeds and should keep his place in the team.

John Egan (CB)

His calmness in central defence helps other players big time. Egan is a key player in this Sheffield United team.

Jack O’Connell (LCB)

Another player who oozes class in central defence and does his job to the maximum. If the Blades are to challenge for the title, O’Connell has to start all of the remaining games.

Enda Stevens (LWB)

His energy and quality on the left wing-back position are pretty good. Another player who must start all the remaining games for United.

Oliver Norwood (CM)

He has been a consistently good player for the team in the midfield. Norwood’s presence in the middle of the park is important for Wilder’s men.

Chris Basham (CM)

Scored the winner against Leeds and looked at home in midfield. Hence, he should keep his place there against Bristol.

John Fleck (CM)

He is been fantastic in central midfield for the Blades and is a certain starter for the remainder of this season.

Billy Sharp (ST)

Sharp’s scoring form has been great this season and he matches that with his tireless work rate. The veteran would be aiming to add to his tally of the season this weekend.
