Goal Scorer:

Manchester United
Erik ten Hag has new injury concerns hampering his preparations ahead of his side’s latest fixture. Against Sheffield United on Wednesday, the Manchester United manager will be bereft of the services of 12 first-team players.

Scott McTominay, Sofyan Amrabat, and Marcus Rashford are the latest players to pick up injuries after the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City. The trio will unlikely regain fitness to start the clash with Sheffield United.

They have joined Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Willy Kambwala, Lisandro Martinez, Jonny Evans, Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, and Anthony Martial on the sidelines. So, the Dutch tactician has only three fit defenders in his squad.

Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka pick themselves, even though Maguire is playing with an injury, according to Casemiro, who will be the Englishman’s central defensive partner. Andre Onana is an automatic pick between the sticks.

As for the midfield unit, Christian Eriksen will start alongside Kobbie Mainoo in the double pivot. There might not be any backup senior midfielder available on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Rasmus Hojlund will lead the line for Manchester United against Sheffield United, with Antony, Bruno Fernandes, and Alejandro Garnacho completing the numbers in the final third.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Onana; Dalot, Casemiro, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka; Eriksen, Mainoo; Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund

Sheffield United
Unlike his counterpart in the Manchester United dugout, Chris Wilder does not have any new issues to deal with ahead of the trip to Old Trafford. The Sheffield United manager will be without nine first-team players on Wednesday.

Chris Basham, John Egan, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Max Lowe, George Baldock, Jack Robinson, Tom Davies, Daniel Jebbison, and Rhian Brewster fill the bloated treatment room.

Sheffield United will line up in a 3-5-2 formation against Manchester United, with Ivo Grbic taking his spot between the sticks. The central defensive unit should feature Mason Holgate, Anel Ahmedhodzic, and Auston Trusty. Jayden Bogle and Ben Osborn will be the two wing-backs.

The pair will look to contribute on both ends of the pitch while flanking Gustavo Hamer, Oliver Arblaster, and Vinicius Souza in the middle of the park. Finally, Oliver McBurnie and Ben Brereton Diaz should be the two strikers.

Probable Lineup (3-5-2): Grbic; Holgate, Ahmedhodzic, Trusty; Bogle, Hamer, Arblaster, Souza, Osborn; McBurnie, Brereton Diaz
Prediction: Manchester United 2-1 Sheffield United
