Meet the opposition

Sheffield United impressed on their return to the Sky Bet Championship last season and ended finishing a more than respectable 10th.

Manager Chris Wilder has been at the Club since May 2016 and boasts an admirable managerial CV with promotions from the Conference and League Two in previous roles and from League One with the Blades.

The departure of young midfielder David Brooks to Bournemouth for around £11 million in the summer allowed the Club to spend the cash on areas they felt needed improving.

Centre-back John Egan was the most lucrative signing in the window, joining from Brentford for £4.5 million.

Dean Henderson and Ben Woodburn have arrived on loan from Manchester United and Liverpool respectively as they hope to prove themselves at this level.

Whereas the signings David McGoldrick and Oliver Norwood will give the Blades' squad much more experience throughout the season.

So far, United have won one of their three Championship matches, with that victory coming last weekend as they beat Queens Park Rangers 2-1 at Loftus Road.

In this fixture last season, an early Yanic Wildschut strike saw City grind out a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane, part a record-breaking run of five consecutive clean sheets for the Canaries.

Blades: 1 Dean Henderson, 2 George Baldock, 3 Enda Stevens, 4 John Fleck, 5 Jack O'Connell, 6 Chris Basham, 7 John Lundstram, 9 Leon Clarke, 10 Billy Sharp, 11 Ben Woodburn, 12 John Egan, 13 Jake Wright, 14 Ryan Leonard, 15 Paul Coutts, 16 Oliver Norwood, 17 David McGoldrick, 18 Kieron Freeman, 19 Richard Stearman, 20 Kean Bryan, 21 Mark Duffy, 24 Daniel Lafferty
