FIVE minutes until kick-off! It’s Everton vs Sheffield United in the Premier League, it’s live and it’s next!
With the uncertainty surrounding Sheffield United regarding Chris Wilder’s permanent replacement for next season, Paul Heckingbottom has called for unity from everyone at the club ahead of their final three Premier League fixtures. "Everyone - players, coaches, staff, directors - we all need to be working for one thing and that’s not ourselves, it’s the benefit of the football club,” the Blades interim boss said.
Everton have the fourth best away record in the top flight, but only Fulham have taken fewer than the Toffees' six points at home in 2021. Carlo Ancelotti has acknowledged their form has to change ahead of their final two Goodison Park fixtures of the campaign. "We have to pay attention because the home run is not good," the Toffees boss said in his pre-match press conference. "We would like to close this season at home with two good results.”
After making his Premier League debut with a substitute cameo against Crystal Palace in Sheffield United’s last outing, 17-year-old Daniel Jebbison is thrust into the starting XI today. Fellow teenagers Zak Brunt and Kyron Gordon could make their top flight bows from the bench.
James Rodriguez is back in the Everton side after sitting out the Toffees' last three with a calf injury. Can the Columbian international provide the attacking sparkle that was missing as Everton drew a blank at Villa Park on Thursday evening?
Sheffield United’s relegation to the Championship was confirmed in April, but the Blades still have pride to play for. Paul Heckingbottom’s side currently sit on 17 points; just five teams in Premier League history have failed to hit the 20 point mark. Victory today will guarantee that Sheffield United avoid being enrolled into this illustrious group.
Everton can move level on points with sixth place Tottenham with a win as they bid to qualify for Europe for the first time since the 2016/17 season. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have taken maximum points at Goodison Park on just five occasions this season, giving them the worst home record of the top 14 clubs in the Premier League.
Sheffield United make three changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Crystal Palace last time out, two of which are enforced with Sander Berge and Oliver Burke sidelined through injury, while Kean Bryan drops to the bench. In come Jack Robinson and Ben Osborn, and 17-year-old forward Daniel Jebbison is handed his first Premier League start.
One change for Everton following their midweek stalemate with Aston Villa. James Rodriguez returns to the side following a three-match injury layoff, with Gylfi Sigurdsson dropping to the bench.
