'Ampadu and Berge masterclass' . . . 'Fancy us for a result today' . . . 'John Lundstram’s Sheffield United career is effectively over' - Blades fans' verdict on team to play Manchester City

Chris Wilder, the Sheffield United manager, has made one change from the side which lost 2-1 at Premier League champions Liverpool seven days ago for this lunchtime’s clash with Manchester City at Bramall Lane.

Max Lowe, signed from Derby County in the summer, returns after missing the trip to Anfield with concussion sustained in the draw with Fulham earlier this month and replaces John Lundstram, who drops to the bench.

United go into the game hoping to secure their first victory of the new campaign against Pep Guardiola’s star-studded side, although Wilder will have taken heart from the performance his players produced in defeat at Anfield last weekend.

So, can the starting XI the United manager has named for today’s game chalk up the Blades’ first win of the season?

Let’s see what a selection of Unitedites on Twitter think.

@Matt_Gregory97 Ampadu and Berge masterclass. Point is on the cards #sufc #twitterblades

@1889Dylan Fancy us for a result today, or at the very least a good performance and give them a good run for their money, just a bit worse than Liverpool at home last year

@liamwwood John Lundstram’s Sheffield United career is effectively over. #sufc

@JackAshbourne Get in the bin Lundstram

@OfficialRJH1 Nice lineup, Ben Osborn is still massively underrated still. Bye Bye to Lundstrum in January. 3 strikers on the bench, no need for that, should have out Bogle on bench

@Joey0114 I’d have gone Didz for Oli. Other than that, this is the strongest side at our disposal. Love Osborn!

@CotherRichard Like the starting line-up. Ampadu, Osborne, Berge midfield, yes. Lowe and Brewster start.

@jonathonchapma2 Where’s Bogle gone?

@L8URG Happy with this

@Sufc_Jam3s YES, NO LUNDSTRAM!!!!

@BeeCarl Stevens is not a centre back as proved with Liverpool’s winner.
