Sheffield United prediction

We travel to Bramhall Lane for Sunday's Sky Sports offering without Micah Richards, who has a slight knee-injury and is no doubt being rested ahead of the weeks two Premiership fixtures.

Although the trio of Bojinov, Johnson and Mpenza are back in full training, none will be risked in a competitive match at this stage but one who will make the trip is Daniel Sturridge who returned from injury in style with a midweek hat-trick for the youth team and left with praise from Sven who was raving over his potential.

Although we have not quite thrown off our stuttering form of late, this is a game which I fully expect us to win given the troubles Sheffield United have had this season as they look to bounce back to the Premier League under Bryan Robson at the first attempt since last seasons relegation.

Not wanting to look too far ahead (or at least past the quarter-finals!), given the number of Premier League sides who have crashed out already, the draw could really open up if we make it through this round and get a favourable tie in round 5.

A comfortable win for me in this one, with 2-0 being the most likely scoreline.
