Sheffield United are starting to pick up some important points as they have beaten Tottenham and drawn against Burnley in their last two games.
They now face a big clash against Wolves, and a victory against the side means they would only be one point away from the sixth placed team, via BBC Sport.
This game could be a huge statement of intent for Chris Wilder’s side and so the starting eleven he picks is one of his most crucial selections this season.
Here is the Transfer Tavern predicted Sheffield United starting XI, which sees Chris Wilder make one change for the fixture from their last outing against Burnley in the league.
Even though the back five didn’t get a clean sheet, they still played well, and centre-back John Egan scored the equaliser for the Blades which saw him get a 7.4 rating from SofaScore.
However the big news was the fact that in the 55th minute Jack O’Connell was subbed on for Jack Robinson. He had been injured since football had returned, and this will please Blades supporters massively. The fact he got subbed on quite early possibly hints that Wilder wants O’Connell to start in the Wolves fixture.
Meanwhile Ben Osborn has really adapted well since coming in to replace the injured John Fleck, and this was highlighted by the fact that in the last game he picked up a 7.0 rating whilst making one key pass and winning two ground duels. A trio of Osborn, Norwood and Berge has seen the Blades undefeated in the last two and with John Lundstram and Fleck looking like they are still injured, then the midfield should remain the same.
Billy Sharp showed that he can still make an impact at this level as he came off the bench and picked up an assist in the Burnley match. Oliver McBurnie and David McGoldrick still played well upfront as they picked up a 7.5 and a 7.1 rating so Sharp may have to play the role of ‘super sub’, at Bramall Lane on Wednesday.
