Sheffield United vs Everton Predicted Lineups and News

Prior to exploring the potential lineups for the Sheffield United vs Everton match, let’s begin by sharing the most up-to-date team news for both squads and analysing how these recent alterations might affect their overall competitiveness. Moreover, for those who can’t attend the match in person, be assured that you can catch all the action on your television.

Team News: Sheffield United

Sheffield United entertained League One side Lincoln City in the second round of EFL Cup and lost the game on penalties after a 0-0 draw. The Blades have also recorded a horrible start to Premier League with three successive defeats. In the most recent league fixture, Jayden Bogle levelled the game against Manchester City by 1-1 but Rodri took just three minutes to put City back in the lead.

Sheffield United has successfully acquired Luke Thomas on loan from Leicester City for the duration of the season. In terms of training updates, Ben Osborn sustained a groin injury during the recent league match against Manchester City and had to exit the field within the first 17 minutes. The midfielder’s return to the pitch in the near future seems uncertain.

Daniel Jebbison is sidelined due to illness, while Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Rhian Brewster, and John Fleck are also unavailable due to an ankle injury, thigh injury, and leg injury, respectively. Yasser Larouci, who has made substitute appearances in all three league matches and started in the EFL Cup fixture, might be a candidate to step into the starting lineup to fill the void left by Osborn.

Sheffield United predicted lineup:

Foderingham; Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Robinson, Baldock, Hamer, Souza, Norwood, Larouci, Traore, Archer

Team News: Everton

Everton finally managed to get rid of their losing sequence with a victory against Doncaster in the second round of the EFL Cup. After a 1-0 trail in the first half, Beto netted the ball to level the game for the Blues and Arnaut Danjuma scored a late winning goal in the 88th minute. But Everton currently has the worst on the Premier League’s points table with three defeats and -6 GC points.

As the match against Sheffield United draws near, Manager Sean Dyche finds himself contending with a substantial list of injured players. Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently in the recovery process following a significant cheekbone fracture. Meanwhile, Seamus Coleman (knee), Alex Iwobi (thigh), Dele Alli (groin), and Jack Harrison (groin) are not projected to make their return until after the conclusion of the international break.

Furthermore, Vitaliy Mykolenko, who was substituted out in the previous Doncaster match, is not likely to make a rapid comeback. Consequently, this scenario could result in Ashley Young securing his fourth consecutive start in the Premier League this season.

Everton predicted lineup:

Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Young; Gueye; Garner, Onana, Doucoure, Danjuma; Beto

Will Ben Osborn play for Sheffield United?

Ben Osborn began the Premier League season with three successive starts, featuring for nearly the entire ninety minutes in the initial two matches. However, during the third round against reigning champions Manchester City, Osborn had to leave the field as early as the 17th minute due to a groin problem, necessitating medical attention. The midfielder was subsequently absent from the EFL Cup fixture against Lincoln City, but a return to action is anticipated in the near future.
