Premier League

Battle For Europe: Here Is Scheffield United Possible starting XI To Face Everton

Scheffield United FC continue their quest for European football next season as they prepare to welcome Everton to Bramall Lane for their next league game on Monday, 20th July, 2020. This is a match they need to win in order to keep their hopes for European football alive.

The League match between Scheffield United FC and Everton FC will be played on Monday by 6.00pm (Nigerian Time).

Scheffield United are 8th on the league table with 54 points from 36 games, while Everton sit 11th on the league table with 46 points from 36 matches.

Scheffield United are just two points adrift Wolverhampton Wanderers who occupy 6th position. If they beat Everton, they could replace Wolverhampton on 6th position. However, that will only be possible if Wolves fail to win Crystal Palace in the premier league on Monday.

Below is Scheffield possible starting XI:

3-5-2

Moore (Goalkeeper)

Basham

O'Connell

Robinson

Berge

Norwood

Baldock

Robinson

Lundstram

Sharp

McBrunie

I remember that Scheffield United goalkeeper, Moore, was at his best when they beat Frank Lampard's Chelsea 3-0. He needs to put in a similar display against Everton to stand a chance of helping Scheffield United record a win. I understand that Dean Henderson is fit, but the coach could make few changes.

Basham, O'Connell and Robinson will play as defensive trio. They are very disciplined in defensive duties. I see them putting up a stellar performance against Everton. They were able to absorb the pressure of Lampard's Blues.

Berge and Norwood will play as defensive midfielders in order to provide the needed support to the back trio, while Robinson and Baldock will play as wingbacks thereby supporting in attack.

Lundstram will play as an attacking midfielder. He will play behind the strikers to provide the needed passes. He dominated posesseion in the middle of the park in their recent 2-0 loss to Leicester City at King Power Stadium.

McBrunie will play as top striker. He will be supported by Sharp. They have the capacity to cause problems for Everton. However, Everton could upset Scheffield.

I predict Scheffield United to win. What do you predict? Use the comment box. Follow me to get more sports updates.
