    Sheffield United - v - Leeds United ***Matchday Thread***



    12.00pm KO Sunday

    TEAM NEWS

    Sheffield United will be without suspended defender John Egan following his sending off on Monday night, with Phil Jagielka and loan signing Ethan Ampadu the favourites to replace him.

    Injured forward Lys Mousset is the Blades' only other certain absentee.

    Leeds remain without influential midfielder Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw because of injury.

    Diego Llorente is available for selection after joining from Real Sociedad earlier this week.

    Leeds are up and running points-wise after*seeing off Fulham last week*and I think this will be another rock-and-roll type game with lots of chances, and lots of tackling too.

    Both teams like to get stuck in, and this is going to be a good game to watch.

    Sheffield United have no goals or points so far, but I think they will at least put the first part of that problem right in this game.

    Prediction:*1-2

    Extended pre March build up 👌.

    Should be another good game and 3 points would see us start to build a cushion away from the bottom.

    Baggies v Chelsea (albeit Chelsea defence was sh1te!), not showing them (WBA), as soft in any way.
