Sheffield United vs West Ham - Blades goalkeeping resources depleted

Sheffield United’s only injury issues concern their back-up goalkeepers as they prepare to host Wet Ham.

Michael Verrips must miss out under concussion protocol following the knock to the head that saw him substituted against AFC Fylde in the FA Cup last weekend, while Simon Moore (back) continues to regain full fitness and is back in training.

Blades boss Chris Wilder, who rested his entire starting XI in the cup, recalled Jake Eastwood from his loan spell at Scunthorpe this week and he may be on the bench as cover for Dean Henderson on Friday night.

Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell return to the West Ham squad for the trip to Bramall Lane.

Skipper Noble and full-back Cresswell missed last weekend’s FA Cup win at Gillingham as they were carrying knocks.

Ryan Fredericks is out after injuring a hamstring against the Gills while Michail Antonio (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (groin) and Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh) are still sidelined.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Eastwood, Moore, Egan, Basham, O’Connell, Fleck, Stevens, Besic, Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Robinson, Mousset, Sharp, McBurnie, McGoldrick, Freeman, Jagielka.

West Ham provisional squad: Fabianski, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Diop, Balbuena, Masuaku, Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Anderson, Haller, Roberto, Cresswell, Reid, Sanchez, Fornals, Lanzini, Ajeti.
