At first glance, given that his team will enter their game against West Bromwich Albion searching for its first win of the season after scoring only four goals so far this term, deciding who spearheads Sheffield United’s attack appears to be the most important selection dilemma facing Chris Wilder ahead of this weekend’s visit to The Hawthorns.
