SHF vs MUN Dream11 TeamPrediction : Sheffield United welcome Manchester Untied to Bramall Lane in the Premier League. Sheffield United have been struggling in their second season in the top-flight of English football and find themselves at the bottom of the table. The Blades have just 1 point out of a possible 36 with 1 draw and 11 losses so far. They have also scored just 5 goals while conceding 21 in the league. They are currently on a 7-game losing streak. Manchester United have problems of their own, with just 1 win in their last 4 games, although, they are unbeaten in the league since their home loss to Arsenal, a run spanning 5 games. Of these 5 games, they have won 4 and currently find themselves in 9th place (at the time of writing) but a win can potentially take them to 4th place with a game in hand.

A) Sheffield United Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Jack O’Connell, Kean Bryan and Oli McBurnie are all injured and will not feature for this game.
Doubtful: Chris Wilder has no doubtful players for the SHF vs MUN Dream 11 Prediction.

George Baldock and Ben Osborn will flank the midfield with Sander Berge, John Fleck and Ethan Ampadu deputising in the centre of the park. Oli McBurnie’s miss will come as a blow to the Blades and David McGoldrick will partner Oliver Burke in the attack.

Aaron Ramsdale (GK)
B) Manchester United Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Phil Jones remains the only long-term absentee for Manchester United
Doubtful: Edinson Cavani missed the Manchester derby and Anthony Martial was only fit enough to come off the bench but should be able to start this game.
Expected changes: Dean Henderson has been eyeing the number 1 spot and will like to play against his former side but David De Gea should get the nod. Alex Telles is likely to replace Luke Shaw as United look to implement a more offensive approach. Nemanja Matic should get a start in the double-pivot, alongside Scott McTominay, playing behind Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford. Martial bagged a hat-trick when the two sides last met and should lead the line.
Manchester United Starting XI (probable):
David De Gea (GK)

SHF vs MUN Dream11, Captain & Differential Picks, Fantasy Football Tips
Captain Options –
Bruno Fernandes – Bruno Fernandes has been Manchester United’s main man for a long time now. He has 11 goals and 6 assists in all competitions this season with an immense 57 goal-scoring chances. Bruno Fernandes also has 26 accurate crosses as well and will look through break the Sheffield defence down.
Sander Berge – Berge has arguably been Sheffield’s best player this season with about 13 goal-scoring chances created from the centre of the park and 19 successful dribbles. He will also be crucial in defence with 28 clearances and 4 interceptions too. He will be in charge of making things happen for his side.
Marcus Rashford – The Englishman has 10 goals and 4 assists this season with 7 goal contributions (3 goals and 4 assists) in the Premier League. Playing mostly on the left-flank, Rashford has successfully completed 35 dribbles with a pass accuracy of 80%. Rashford will be ordered to create pockets of space behind the right wing-back and right-sided defender.
Differential Picks –
Alex Telles – United used a more conservative approach against Manchester City which saw Luke Shaw given a start but against a side like Sheffield, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to use Alex Telles’ dangerous crosses. He has 14 accurate crosses this season in just 554 minutes of football and bagged an assist against West Ham United.
John Fleck – Playing alongside Sander Berge, Fleck has been impressive too and will be a threat to Manchester United. He has created 8 goal-scoring chances with 6 successful dribbles. John Fleck has also whipped in 8 accurate crosses which David McGoldrick will love to get on the end of.
Anthony Martial – Anthony Martial has had a very poor start to the season with just 2 goals and 1 assist so far, with 0 goals in the Premier League. He will look to break his duck against Sheffield United’s leaky defence. He also got a hattrick against them last season and will hope to turn his fortunes around in this game.
