33-y/o in, 27-y/o out: The Sheffield Utd XI that Wilder must use tonight to win the derby

It’s a game that even neutrals look out for when the fixtures are released at the start of the summer, and the clash between Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday is bound to be a cracker in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Both sides go into the encounter on the back of a defeat, but it’s Chris Wilder’s Blades who are favourites for this one – they’ll be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to promotion rivals Nottingham Forest last weekend, with a win that could send them to the top of the league.
