Odds, referee, TV and live stream details: Everything you need to know ahead of Swansea City v Sheffield United

Sheffield United’s striker duo Rhian Brewster and Oli McBurnie are set for a reunion with their former club this weekend when the Blades take on Swansea City.

Both players were regular scorers for the Swans during their respective spells in South Wales before signing for United, where the goals have been harder to come by.

Still, Brewster finally netted his first goal in red and white in the EFL Cup on Tuesday – and the outpouring of emotion afterwards was there for all to see.

That goal was enough to give Sheffield United their first win of the season – and first under Slavisa Jokanovic – against Carlisle United.
