Sheffield United vs Sunderland Match Preview

Uncertainty surrounds Sunderland again, but they could just represent good value to shine away from home in the Carabao Cup for the third consecutive round.

The Wearside club are in the midst of another takeover by an American consortium which, if completed, promises to make them much sounder financially – although it is taking some time to get the deal across the line.

The other big question mark is over the future of manager Jack Ross. Many Black Cats fans are running out of patience with the Scot after the club missed out on promotion from League One last season and they are currently fifth in the table this time around, with Sam Allardyce being linked with a return to the North East if the takeover goes through.

But although Sunderland are not quite where they want to be in the league, they have been making excellent strides in the Carabao Cup after winning 3-1 away to Lancashire neighbours Accrington Stanley and Burnley.

Next up for the Mackems are a second Premier League club, Sheffield United, who have made a strong start to life in the top flight and won 2-0 away to Everton at the weekend.

However, you would imagine that a significantly more important engagement for the Blades is their Saturday lunchtime test at home to European champions Liverpool and so with Chris Wilder likely to rotate his squad, the door could be open for Sunderland to spring an upset.
