Writing his weekly predictions piece for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson backed a 2-0 Blades win.

Discussing his prediction, the ex-Liverpool player explained: "Plymouth finally got their first away win of the season in League One, at the 10th attempt, when they beat Sunderland on Tuesday. I don't see them getting any joy at Bramall Lane though.

"Sheffield United are bottom of the Premier League and still in a situation where they need every win they can, and this is obviously a big opportunity for them to get one.

"The Blades showed what their attitude is like towards the FA Cup when they edged past Bristol Rovers in round three, and I'm expecting the same from them again this time."

Last time the two sides met, back in 2014, United knocked the Pilgrims out of the FA Cup with a 3-0 home win.
