After their 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals, Sheffield United will be looking to regroup with a win over Carlos Corberan’s West Bromwich Albion in midweek.
United are set to be without Rhys Norrington-Davies, Ben Osborn and Enda Stevens for their game against the Baggies. Likewise, Jack O’Connell is still put, as he continues his long journey toward full fitness.
In their last Championship game, the Blades defeated Nigel Pearson’s Bristol City by a score of 1-0. It was a tense encounter, as United were determined to maintain their lead over Middlesbrough and Luton in the Championship table.
Eventually, in the 77th minute, Manchester City loanee James McAtee scored the only goal of the game to give the South Yorkshire outfit a massive three points.
Elsewhere, West Brom played Sunderland at home in their last league game, losing by a score of 2-1. They went 1-0 up on the stroke of halftime, after John Swift scored a penalty, but the Black Cats took the lead in the second period thanks to a brace from Dennis Cirkin. The Baggies failed to find a response and were beaten by the North East side.
The last time the two teams played each other, United won by a score of 2-0 at the Hawthorns. Two quickfire goals in the first half were enough to give the Blades a victory – how will the reverse fixture pan out?
