Billy Sharp starts: The predicted Sheffield United XI to face Millwall on Saturday

Published

on

Sheffield United will be looking to bounce back from their recent 1-0 defeat to Watford by producing a positive performance against Millwall at Bramall Lane tomorrow.

Joao Pedro scored what turned out to be the winning goal in the second-half of Monday’s fixture for the Hornets.

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting with the Lions, the Blades have bolstered their squad by securing the services of James McAtee on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City.

Whilst McAtee could potentially make his debut for United on Saturday, Enda Stevens will not be available for selection due to a calf injury.

Having witnessed his side’s display against Watford, it will be interesting to see whether Blades manager Paul Heckingbottom opts to make some considerable alterations to his team this weekend.

Here, we have decided to take a look at how United could line up against Millwall…

When you consider that Heckingbottom deployed the 3-4-1-2 formation against Watford, he may decide to stick with this system on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham will be hoping to claim his first clean-sheet of the season in this particular fixture.

Ciaran Clark and John Egan will feature in the heart of defence alongside Anel Ahmedhodzic who missed the club’s clash with Watford due to suspension.

With Stevens being forced to watch on from the sidelines, Max Lowe may be handed the chance to prove his worth in the left-wing back position after being introduced as a substitute at Vicarage Road.

George Baldock meanwhile will feature at right wing-back for the Blades.

John Fleck will be accompanied in central midfield by Oliver Norwood while Sander Berge is set to feature in a more advanced role.

Berge will be tasked with providing support for Iliman Ndiaye and Billy Sharp who are set to feature in a two-striker formation.

Having made a cameo appearance against the Hornets, Sharp will be keen to deliver the goods in front of United’s supporters tomorrow after missing the end of the 2021/22 campaign due to an issue with his calf.

Given that Sharp has managed to score an incredibly impressive total of 128 goals in the Championship during his career, he will unquestionably fancy his chances of adding to this tally on Saturday.
