Southampton v Sheffield United team news

Southampton: Danny Ings returned to the Saints side last time out and scored off the bench in the 2-1 win over Brighton, so could move into the first XI here.

Boss Ralph Hasenhuttl may therefore drop Theo Walcott to the bench or change the system to accommodate both men.

Sheffield United: Wilder will hope to have Enda Stevens fit from a knee injury this weekend, but Jack O'Connell remains absent with a long-standing set-back.

Lys Mousset may finally come back into the side after featuring just once all season. There is hope Ethan Ampadu will pass a late fitness test.

Our prediction: Southampton v Sheffield United

Southampton are in top form right now and the addition of Ings back into the squad only aids their attacking prowess.

And it’s hard to see how Sheffield United keep Saints at bay over 90 minutes.

While the Blades have generally kept things tight in games this season, their lack of offensive threat has cost them. Southampton should be in control at half time with very little concern at the back.

Our prediction: Southampton 3-0 Sheffield United
