Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has provided an update on the fitness of John Lundstram, ahead of his side’s meeting with Liverpool.
Liverpool vs Sheffield United
The Blades are set to visit Jurgen Klopp’s table-topping Reds on Thursday night, in a Premier League clash.
Sheffield United are no doubt well aware that they face an uphill task if they hope to emerge from Anfield with any form of return.
Liverpool have dropped just 2 points all season to this point, and, despite having played a game less than the chasing pack, sit a hefty 13 points clear atop the English top-flight.
Chris Wilder’s men, though, have enjoyed a fine campaign of their own thus far.
The Blades’ defeat to Manchester City at the weekend saw them slip from the dizzying heights of 5th to a nevertheless-impressive 8th in the Premier League table.
If Sheffield United hope to get things back on track with a positive result at Anfield in 2 days’ time, though, they will no doubt require as close to a fully fit squad as possible.
As such, speaking in a press conference this evening ahead of his side’s next outing, Chris Wilder was asked for an update on the wellbeing of John Lundstram.
Versatile midfielder Lundstram has enjoyed a superb campaign to this point, solidifying himself as an automatic first-choice in not only the Blades’ XI, but also the line-ups of Fantasy Premier League players the world over.
However, the 25-year-old missed his side’s defeat to Man City after failing a late fitness test.
Chris Wilder, though, confirmed that Lundstram was set to return to full training today, with his potential involvement versus Liverpool to be based on how well or not he came through the session.
