THE TEAM NEWS

SHEFFIELD UTD

  • After successive away games at Manchester City and Liverpool, Sheffield United host West Ham in an attempt to get back to winning ways.
  • The Blades made wholesale changes to their side for their FA Cup victory over AFC Fylde last week in an attempt to rest some of their stars.
  • Chris Wilder will need to decide who to field up front for this encounter but David McGoldrick and Lys Mousset are the most likely pairing.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O'Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Mousset

Unavailable: Verrips (Injured)

Doubtful: Moore (Injured)

WEST HAM

  • David Moyes made it two wins from two on his return to West Ham as his side overcame Gillingham in their FA Cup third round clash.
  • The Hammers will be looking to build on their 4-0 win over Bournemouth in Moyes' first game back as they bid to climb up the table.
  • Moyes will reinstate captain Mark Noble providing he overcomes a knock while Pablo Zabaleta should come in for the injured Ryan Fredericks.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Fabianski; Zabaleta, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Snodgrass, Noble, Rice, Pablo Fornals; Felipe Anderson; Haller

Unavailable: Wilshere (Injured), Fredericks (Injured), Antonio (Injured), Yarmolenko (Injured)

Doubtful: Martin (Injured), Cresswell (Injured), Noble (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Sheffield United will not thank the fixture computer after successive trips to the Etihad and Anfield in close proximity but return to home comforts here. They host West Ham who will be looking to kick on under David Moyes but the Blades rarely lose at home and should avoid defeat in this one.
