Same team for me.

.........Randolph
......Ayala Flint Fry
Shotton..............Friend
..........Mikel
...Howson Wing Saville
.........Hugill


If Wing isn't fit, he'll play Besic, but I'd play VLP or Britt.

Fry didn't have a great game against Leeds, but hopefully just a blip, and we don't have anyone else.

they played 3-5-2 last game, with an inverted central pyramid.

So your 3-5-2 would match up. exactly. It then becomes about winning individual battles.

Ayala/Flint/Fry vs Madine & Sharp. I would think we will do OK there.

Mikel vs Dowell their number 10 - we know which way that should go.

Howson & Saville vs Norwood & Fleck - would be a good battle

Shotton vs Enda Stevens who has had a great season. This will be a key battle

Friend vs Baldock again a tough battle to call

Britt & Hugill vs Basham, Egan & O'Connell. I think we would be looking to get Britt in behind Basham who isn't quick.

Man for man we are a better team, if we are setup right we should be able to stiffle their attacks, because they play a pretty basic get it forward early and try to bully you type of game, that should be tailor made for us.

I think that will be the team too.

And agree Besic is the one who will come in if Wing isnít fit. But think that could be costly as Wing is so different and better than Besic. Will be a massive miss, really hope Wing is fit and firing.

The only thing that makes there formation interesting is there wider centrebacks overlap there wingbacks. Thatís why I would be tempted to go with VLP as we may be able to catch them on the break with a bit of pace.

Basham ends up at right wing more often than not and heís a CB

The 4 midfielders who started and did so well against Leeds must all start.
Hopefully Shotton is better for the minutes played.

Keep besic a long way away from the first team, he is not remotely good enough.

Didn't commentator for Sheff U v Villa say Basham misses Boro game after yellow card?

I hope so, hope so.

He will be a big miss for them, his overlapping runs cause all sorts of problems.

I agree start the same midfield if fit. If not then I would play VLP down the left move Saville into Wings position.

The other question is do you drop a CM to play Britt.

Assuming wing is unfit, I would like to see a 4-4-2 with a diamond midfield of Mikel in front of the back four, Howson right, VLP left and Saville at the point supporting Hugill and Britt. It might leave GF a bit exposed on our left. If Wingy was fit Saville would go left of the diamond and Lewis behind the front 2 which helps GF a bit more

Living in Sheffield a lot of Blades fans I speak don't rate Stevens. I think he's improved this season but if Shotton gets into him a couple of times early doors could win the psychological battle there.

United's play tends to focus on getting the ball forward early (from CB, often big diagonals) but once in the opposition defensive third they play some very nice football and I think they'll be able to move us around quite easily.

Wouldn't be surprised to see similar to Saturday (central striker with two midfielders pushed up) to try and close the CBs, stop the balls coming over in the first place.

Sheffield United do a lot of good work centrally round the edge of the box - don't be surprised to see Mikel and Clayton deployed.
