  • If David McGoldrick fails to prove his fitness, Lys Mousset will partner Oli McBurnie upfront.
  • Chris Wilder will definitely line-up once again with a three-man backline, consisting of Basham, Egan and O'Connell, with Baldock and Stevens as wing-backs.
  • John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood and John Fleck will start in the midfield.

Captain and vice-captain options from Sheffield United:

  • John Fleck has been an all-action midfielder for Wilder and Sheffield this season. The 28-year-old Scottish international has five goals and 2 assists to his name. As always, he will be critical for Sheffield against the reigning champions.
  • John Lundstram is also a vital cog in Sheffield's midfield. The former Everton player has 3 goals and 2 assists in the Premier League this season.
  • Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie have nine goals between them.

Manchester City team news: Centre-back Aymeric Laporte is back in the training following a lengthy knee injury, but Pep Guardiola confirmed that he is short of match fitness at the moment and is not available for selection at the moment.
Leroy Sane remains out with a long-term injury. The Germany international has missed the entire campaign due to knee injury he suffered in the FA Community Shield match against Liverpool.
In addition, City could be without two more players in the shape of Benjamin Mendy (muscle fatigue) and John Stones (leg injury).

How Manchester City may line-up against Sheffield United?

  • Oleksandr Zinchenko and Nicolas Otamendi are expected to start if Mendy and Stones are not fit, with Fernandinho the mainstay at the back at the moment. Kyle Walker is also in line to start ahead of Joao Cancelo at right-back.
  • David Silva didn't have the best of the games against Crystal Palace and could be dropped from the playing 11, with Riyad Mahrez getting the nod.

Captain options from Manchester City:

  • Sergio Aguero has scored an incredible five goals in his last two outings in the league. He looks the safest choice for the captain at the moment.
  • Raheem Sterling is the second-highest scorer for City with 11 league goals.
  • Kevin De Bruyne is the best playmaker in the Premier League. The Belgian superstar has 16 assists to his name this season.

Sheffield United vs Manchester City predicted playing 11:

Sheffield United: Dean Henderson (GK), Chris Basham, John Egan, Jack O'Connell, George Baldock, John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood, John Fleck, Enda Stevens, Lys Mousset, Oli McBurnie
