Sheffield United host Stoke City at Bramall Lane in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides in contrasting runs of form.

Sheffield United have faltered of late and are currently 14th in the table. Slavisa Jokanovic's side have lost their last two games on the trot and will hope to turn things around with a win against a high-flying Stoke City side on Saturday.

Stoke City are currently fourth in the table and are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. Michael O'Neill will know that a win could potentially take his side into second and will hope to take advantage of Sheffield United's poor run of form on Saturday.
