This is the team that Steve Bruce has selected for tonight’s match at Sheffield United. It’s just one shocking change this evening with Andy Carroll making his first start of the season for Joelinton. Wow!

This is the team that Chris Wilder has picked for our opponents.
Oli McBurnie and Billy Sharp come in for Lys Mousset and David McGoldrick who are on the bench.
Sharp’s inclusion will see the striker start a Premier League fixture for the first time this season.#SUFC ?

We are a little taken aback by the lone change since Andy Carroll was not even available this past weekend. However, Steve did hint at rotating his squad with the heavy schedule over the next two months.
Everyone else is the same from the draw against Manchester City. It’s a pretty strong bench with Sean Longstaff, Joelinton, Fabian Schar, and Christian Atsu. No room for Matty Longstaff this evening, however.
Let’s hope the lads show vast improvement from the last away match at Villa Park.
Howay The Lads!
