Predicted Sheffield United line-up to face Brentford in the Championship

Sheffield United host Brentford at the Bramall Lane in the Championship match on Tuesday as Chris Wilder aims to leapfrog Leeds United into the second spot.

The Blades won 2-0 against 10-men Rotherham last weekend and will head into the mid-week game on a high. They have won six consecutive home league games without conceding a goal which makes them overwhelming favourites.

Brentford, meanwhile, sprung a surprise by defeating Middlesbrough away from home and will aim for another big scalp on Tuesday.

Team News

Chris Wilder has no injury concerns as such ahead of the game.

Probable Sheffield United XI

Formation: 3-4-1-2

Manager: Chris Wilder

Dean Henderson (GK)

A clean sheet against Rotherham would have given Henderson a lot of confidence. He should keep his place in goal against Brentford.

Chris Basham (RCB)

Basham has been a regular fixture in the Sheffield United back three. He is likely to retain his place in the team on Tuesday.

John Egan

John Egan (CB)

United’s defensive lynchpin, Egan is an undoubted starter against Brentford.

Jake O’Connell (LCB)

Scored a good goal in the 2-0 victory over Rotherham last weekend. His ball-playing abilities coupled with his aerial ability and strength makes him an asset for Wilder’s team.

George Baldock (RWB)

Returned back to the starting XI against Rotherham from injury and did well. He will likely get a nod ahead of Freeman at right wing-back.

Enda Stevens (LWB)

Stevens has been a consistent performer for Blades this campaign. He deserves to start at left wing-back.

Oliver norwood

Oliver Norwood (CM)

Norwood is one of the first names on the team sheet for his ability to pick a pass and the stability he brings to the team.

John Fleck (CM)

Fleck’s aggression and tenacity in the midfield keep the Blades ticking over. He is likely to partner Norwood again in the engine room.

Mark Duffy (CAM)

Scored a left-footed pile-driver against Rotherham to seal the deal for United. His performance last weekend could be enough to start on Tuesday.

Billy Sharp (LS)

Sharp will be fresh to terrorise Brentford after being an unused substitute last weekend.

David McGoldrick (RS)

McGoldrick should partner Sharp up front and look to cause all kinds of problems to the Brentford backline.
