After naming a much-changed side against AFC Fylde for the FA Cup, Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder will almost certainly revert to his tried and trusted first-team eleven against West Ham tomorrow night.
Michael Verrips suffered a head injury and had to be replaced in goal by Dean Henderson in the 2-1 win last weekend, but Simon Moore could be fit to take the Dutchman’s place on the bench following a groin problem.
Sheffield United’s Predicted XI To Face West Ham:
Henderson, Baldock, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Stevens, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, McGoldrick, Mousset
New West Ham boss David Moyes got off to an excellent start in his first league game, with a 4-0 win over Bournemouth. The Scot could have captain Mark Noble (foot) and Aaron Cresswell (knock) back after they both missed the Hammers’ 2-0 victory over Gillingham.
Michail Antonio is a doubt due to a hamstring issue, while Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh), Jack Wilshere (groin), Ryan Fredericks (hamstring) and David Martin (thigh) are all out of contention.
West Ham’s Predicted XI:
Fabianski, Zabaleta, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Snodgrass, Rice, Noble, Fornals, Anderson, Haller
The bookmakers have made the Blades the favourites with Unibet pricing them at 19/20 for the win. A draw is 5/2 with Sky Bet while a West Ham victory is also 17/5 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to Sheffield United
