Sheffield United: Is John Egan fit? Team news from Bramall Lane ahead of Manchester United clash in Premier League

Much of the build-up to this afternoon’s clash against Manchester United, from a Sheffield United point of view at least, has centered around the fitness of their centre-half, John Egan.

The centre-half went off at half-time of Ireland’s clash with Denmark earlier in the week, and the centre-haf has NOT won the battle to be fit for this afternoon’s clash.

He is replaced by Phil Jagielka, while Simon Moore is in for Dean Henderson – who is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Harry Maguire will captain the Red Devils against his old club.
