26-y/o starts: The predicted Sheffield United XI to face Coventry on Saturday

Published

on

Sheffield United will be looking to bounce back to winning ways tomorrow in the Sky Bet Championship as they play host to Coventry City at Bramall Lane. 

The Blades head into the game on Saturday in 17th place in the league standings, with the Steel City side having only won two of their last six.

This has led to Slavisa Jokanovic having to field questions about his future with the club, especially as the Blades are some way off the pace in the race to gain promotion back to the Premier League.

They are now due to take on a Coventry City side who have defied many people’s expectations by making a stunning start to their own league campaign, thus sitting fourth place in the standings as a result.

Here, we take you through our predicted Sheffield United starting eleven to take on the Sky Blues tomorrow.

Wes Foderingham will come in for Robin Olsen, with the latter having picked up a muscle problem whilst on international duty with Sweden.

In defence Ben Davies should return after recovering from a virus alongside the likes of Enda Stevens and Chris Basham, whilst George Baldock should come in at right back for Jayden Bogle.

John Fleck and Oliver Norwood should maintain their partnership in midfield as they look to dictate the tempo and protect the defence against a talented Coventry side.

Rhian Brewster should get the nod on the right alongside regular starters Morgan Gibbs-White and Ben Osborn.

This should mean that captain Billy Sharp will once again operate as a lone striker, with the veteran having shown good creativity so far this term when choosing to drop deep into pockets of space to link up with his teammates.

Tomorrow’s game will certainly be another tough test for the Blades and they will have to be on their game to get a result.
