Wilder to make 1 important change – Strongest 3-5-2 Sheffield United predicted XI to face Bolton

Predicted Sheffield United line-up to face Bolton Wanderers in the Championship

Sheffield United will travel to face Bolton Wanderers this Saturday, as Chris Wilder’s men aim to continue their winning streak in the Championship.

The Blades successfully picked up two consecutive victories against Queens Park Rangers and Norwich City, but facing Bolton at home will certainly prove to be a tough task. However, if they continue the good form they have displayed in recent times, there could be plenty of fireworks on Saturday.

Team News

Mark Duffy missed out on the game against Norwich due to a virus and Wilder has confirmed that he will be back for this game. Besides that, there are no fresh concerns for Sheffield United.

Probable Sheffield United XI

Manager: Chris Wilder

Formation: 3-5-2

Dean Henderson (GK)

The on-loan Manchester United star has been brilliant for the Blades so far and he should receive a start yet again.

Dean Henderson

Chris Basham (CB)

Basham is a force to reckon with during set-pieces and his influence is undeniable. A definite starter for the game against Bolton.

John Egan (CB)

One of the goalscorers from the game against Norwich, Egan should find himself starting in his usual role.

Jack O’Connell (CB)

He has improved considerably and his work with the likes of Stevens and Fleck while surging forward is truly commendable.

Kieran Freeman (RWB)

Freeman often gets caught out of position but his ability to impact both ends of the pitch could work wonders for Sheffield against Bolton.

Enda Stevens (LWB)

Stevens’ marauding runs up and down the left flank could be devastating for Bolton.

Mark Duffy (CM)

Although Ben Woodburn did a decent job last time out, Sheffield need Duffy in the middle of the park.

Oliver Norwood (CM)

Norwood has been quite impressive for the Blades so far and he should receive a start.

Oliver Norwood

John Fleck (CM)

Fleck’s composure in high-pressure situations could work wonders for him when Sheffield face Bolton this weekend.

Leon Clarke (ST)

Clarke’s movement and impact in the final third are immense and he must be deployed in his usual role against Bolton.

Billy Sharp (ST)

As usual, Sharp should partner Clarke up front. The duo has led the line admirably well and should continue doing so if Sheffield are to bag all of 3 points this weekend.
