Opposition Focus: Sheffield United

Form: Whilst Fulham come into the match off an impressive win away at Derby, Sheffield United were given the weekend off as their match fell victim to the weather, so you need to go back to last Tuesday where two goals from Billy Sharp set them on their way as they put in an impressive display away at struggling Reading.

Overall though, they have been an incredibly inconsistent side for most of the season, particularly in recent times, most notable was when they comfortably beat Sunderland then lost to Bolton within the space of four days.

Formation:  3-5-2 is most likely.

Dangermen: Unlike Fulham, Sessegnon aside, the goals have been predominantly shared around the squad. The majority of Sheffield United’s goals come from the two front men, Leon Clarke and Billy Sharp, who’ve notched 27 goals in The Championship between them so far this season.

Battle to watch: Richard Stearman v Aleksander Mitrovic – I always thought Richard Stearman got a tough break at Fulham and is a fine defender at this level. Seeing him go up against an old-fashioned centre-forward in Mitrovic should be an interesting sideshow during the game.

Prediction: One thing is for certain, this game probably will not end in a draw, with Sheffield United having just drawn four times all season (a league-low). Also do not underestimate the effect that a weekend off will have, particularly after we ourselves had to fight for a full 90 minutes. As a result, I just can’t see it being as high scoring as it was at Bramall Lane earlier in the year.
