Sheffield United boss hints key change could return this season after West Brom experiment

Sheffield United may repeat their experiment of starting with a back four this season after making a rare deviation from their usual 3-5-2 formation for their midweek cup tie against West Brom. Although United lost the game, Karlan Grant heading the winner just moments after coming off the bench to knock United out of the Carabao Cup, there were positive signs from the change of shape, with United’s midfield control early in the game forcing Baggies boss Steve Bruce to mirror the Blades’ approach for the second half.
