One Change Expected: 3-5-2 Sheffield United Predicted Lineup vs Leicester City

Following their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, Sheffield United will host Leicester City at the Bramall Lane on Saturday.

The Blades have made a decent start to their season, having picked up four points so far from their opening two games.

However, the clash against the Foxes will be their toughest test until now.

Callum Robinson came off the pitch in the win over Crystal Palace. However, the attacker has trained all week and is available for selection against Leicester.

Summer signing Ravel Morrison played for ninety minutes in a behind-closed-door game earlier this week, and could get a few minutes off the bench depending on how the game goes.

Midfielder John Fleck hobbled off the pitch with an injury in the clash against Roy Hodgson’s side, and might be given some time by Chris Wilder to recover.

There are still some concerns over the fitness of Lys Mousset, and the Blades are in no rush to make him play until he recovers completely.

Sheffield United Predicted Lineup Vs Leicester City (3-5-2)

Defence

Dean Henderson is likely to start under the bar once again. The custodian bagged a clean sheet against Crystal Palace, and he has to be at his best come Saturday as he is likely to be tested by the Leicester forwards.

John Egan could start in the middle of a three-man backline and is expected to be partnered by Jack O’Connell and Chris Basham.

Wing-backs

George Baldock should be one of the first names to find a place in the starting lineup after his dazzling performance against Crystal Palace. The right wing-back plays with a lot of energy and willingness, which could be handy for his side against a transition oriented side like Leicester.

On the opposite side, Enda Stevens could get the nod to start yet again. The 29-year-old has impressed in his two starts so far, having mustered 3.5 tackles and 1.5 dribbles per game on an average.

Midfield

With Fleck unlikely to feature, Luke Freeman might get the chance to replace him.

John Lundstram and Oliver Norwood could start alongside Freeman to complete Sheffield United’s midfield.

Attack

David McGoldrick and Robinson might start in attack. The two are yet to score this season, and the sooner they break the duck, the better.
