Team news and stats ahead of Sheffield United vs Man Utd in the Premier League on Thursday evening (kick-off 9pm).

Sheffield United will monitor Oli McBurnie in the run-up to kick-off.

The striker injured his shoulder in Sunday's defeat to Southampton but the likes of Lys Mousset - who scored in this fixture last season - Rhian Brewster and David McGoldrick could all step in.

Kean Bryan remains sidelined and Chris Wilder must consider whether to retain Phil Jagielka on the left side of defence or turn back to one of Ethan Ampadu, Jack Robinson or Enda Stevens.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not expecting Edinson Cavani to be fit for the trip to Bramall Lane.

 

Solskjaer's side, who face six games in 16 days, told his press conference it would be a "risk" to pick the veteran striker and said he would have to exercise caution over "little strains and niggles".

Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Sergio Romero are still unavailable but Solskjaer expects to have them back in his ranks next month.

Dean Henderson returns to south Yorkshire after starring on loan last season for the struggling Blades.

United should have no problem swatting aside the basement boys.
