Paul Heckingbottom has been forced into a couple of changes as Sheffield United take on Fulham at Craven Cottage this evening.
Here’s how the Blades line up to face Fulham tonight. ⚔️

The new Blades boss has made an instant impact since he was named as Slavisa Jokanovic’s successor, guiding the team to back-to-back victories.
However, it’s going to be tough to make it three, as the Yorkshire side have made the long journey south to take on a Fulham side who currently sit top of the Championship.
And, Heckingbottom will have to do without a few important players. That’s after the club confirmed Oli McBurnie and David McGoldrick miss out through Covid-19 related issues, whilst Ben Davies is absent for personal reasons.
McGoldrick has been replaced by Iliman Ndiaye in the XI, with Jack Robinson in for Ben Davies on the left side of the back three.
Are these 22 Sheffield United stats real or fake?
It’s fair to say the latter decision didn’t go down well, and here we look at some of the reaction to the team news from Twitter…
