Sheffield United fans will be bouncing off the walls at the start of this season, and Bramall Lane will shake at the weekend.
The Blades produced an assured display at Bournemouth to show at very least they won’t be blown away.
Palace will set up in typically steely style, this won’t be a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination.
Zaha remains their key attacking outlet, but if his head isn’t in the game, the home side could be on course for an ear-splitting afternoon.
Prediction: Sheffield United 2-1 Crystal Palace
