The former Aston Villa man is joined up front by Oli McBurnie for the striker’s first start of the season after an impressive appearance off the bench on Sunday.

Two players keep their place from that 2-1 defeat to the champions, with John Egan and Ollie Norwood keeping their places in a fairly strong line-up.

Adam Davies comes into goal for Wes Foderingham and there’s also a debut at the back with Auston Trusty making his first appearance in red and white. Chris Basham makes up the back three.

Jayden Bogle and Yasser Larouci are the wing backs, while Ismaila Coulibaly comes into midfield alongside Norwood and Andre Brooks.

Sheffield United: Davies, Basham, Egan, Trusty, Bogle, Larouci, Coulibaly, Norwood, Brooks, Archer, McBurnie. Foderingham, Traore, Ahmedhodvic, Slimane, Osula, Marsh, Seriki, Buabu.
