How much should FPL managers invest in Sheffield United’s defence?

Fantasy Premier League managers should give serious consideration to heavy investment in the Sheffield United defence.

The Blades have been one of the best producers of clean sheets in the Premier League this season and are about to embark on an incredibly favourable run of fixtures.

Only Liverpool (15) have conceded fewer goals than Sheffield United (23) so far this season. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s men are also the only Premier League side to keep more clean sheets (nine) than the Blades, whose total of eight is shared by Manchester City, Leicester City, Watford and Burnley.

Sheffield United also have the most appealing fixtures when it comes to clean sheet potential. Between Gameweeks 25 and 30, the Blades are top of the defensive Season Ticker with matches against Crystal Palace (away), Bournemouth (home), Brighton (home), Aston Villa (away), Norwich (home) and Newcastle (away).

Wilder has overseen many an impressive defensive display at Sheff Utd this season

Ahead of this purple patch, we have assessed the true extent of Sheffield United’s defensive capabilities to help decide how many of their assets to purchase – and which ones are the most likely to add attacking returns on top of any clean sheets that come their way.

This article forms part of our Members Article Unlocked series. Normally, only those in possession of a Fantasy Football Scout Membership would be able to access it in full, on account of extensive data used from the Members Area.

However, between Monday, January 27 and Friday, January 31, this article is FREE for everyone to read as part of our promotion.

Underlying statistics

Studying Sheffield United’s defence this season at a closer level certainly produces some mixed results.

All matches

At the time of writing, the Blades sit in the Premier League’s top six for fewest shots in the box conceded this season.

Wilder’s men, in their first season back in the English top-flight, have allowed just 161 efforts inside their penalty area.

That total is four fewer than Leicester (165) and bettered only by Manchester United (146), Chelsea (140), Liverpool (132) and Manchester City (131) – an impressive achievement.

All matches

However, Sheffield United have performed considerably worse when it has come to giving up big chances in 2019/20.

After 24 matches, they have allowed 47 of these, enough to see them feature outside the top 10 in the Premier League, 10 teams conceding fewer than Sheffield United so far.

So while the Blades give up a relatively low number of shots in the box, there is a much higher chance that one of these efforts will be of high quality compared to some of the other top-level defences in the Premier League.

All matches

That is, to some extent, reflected in the expected data for Sheffield United as their expected goals conceded (xGC) score for the season up until this point stands at 31.47.

Put in layman’s terms, that means the Blades should have conceded between 31 and 32 goals this season – although they have, in fact, been breached only 23 times.

All matches

The delta between Sheffield United’s expected goals conceded and actual goals conceded stands at -8.47 then, the second-lowest in the Premier League. Effectively, Crystal Palace are the only side to have done better than they should have defensively in 2019/20.

So what could have led to such a large discrepancy in these two totals? There are often several possible reasons which can include anything from them benefitting from poor finishing of their opponents to impressive last-ditch defending. What we’re trying to find out is whether or not Sheffield United have been lucky up to this point and if their xGC is going to catch up with them anytime soon.

All matches

Thankfully for Fantasy managers, in the Blades’ case, it looks as if they owe a considerable amount to the quality of their goalkeeper Dean Henderson (£5.0m) rather than pure luck.

As you can see from the table above, no shot-stopper has recorded a superior score for xG prevented this season.

Henderson’s score of +6.00 in this department means he is responsible for 70.1% of the shortfall between Sheffield United’s xGC and actual goals conceded total.

Henderson is a huge reason why Sheff Utd have kept so many clean sheets this season

Even though 12 goalkeepers have made more than his 61 saves this season, this data supports the idea that the stops Henderson has made are of higher-quality than anyone else in the Premier League.

That certainly goes some way towards boosting Sheffield United’s clean sheet potential, even if they do register a relatively discouraging total of big chances conceded and xGC score.

SHEFF UTD’S UPCOMING OPPONENTS

The FFScout Season Ticker

As has been previously mentioned, Sheffield United’s fixtures over the next six Gameweeks look ripe for clean sheet potential according to the Season Ticker.

Between now and Gameweek 30, they are scheduled to host Bournemouth, Brighton and Norwich and are due to travel to Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Newcastle.

Last six matches

Handily enough, four of those teams currently sit in the division’s bottom six for shots conceded in the box over the last six Gameweeks.

Bournemouth’s total of 33 is the joint-lowest alongside Burnley, while Crystal Palace and Newcastle are not far away on 34 and 36 respectively. Norwich’s total of 42 is the sixth-worst over the specified period.

This is particularly encouraging when we consider that these shot-shy sides are soon to face a Sheffield United defence that has been one of the best at denying goal attempts in the penalty box this season.

Last six matches

When it comes to the quality of chances put up, the Blades’ clean sheet potential has been handed a massive boost.

Over the last six Gameweeks, five of the bottom six for big chances are due to face Wilder’s men between now and Gameweek 30.

Bournemouth, Newcastle and Norwich are joint-bottom of the Premier League in this department on a total of seven each, while Palace and Aston Villa have managed only eight.

This could ensure that owners of Sheffield United defenders may have to concern themselves slightly less with the team’s propensity to concede big chances or the dependence on Henderson.

Last six matches

The Blades’ upcoming opponents have fared a little better for accuracy than they have volume or quality of shots over the last six Gameweeks.

In this department, the Premier League’s bottom six contains just three of their next opponents, in Crystal Palace (14), Bournemouth (15) and Newcastle (15).

However, Aston Villa (19) and Norwich (20) still find themselves in the bottom half of the table, at least.

Either way, with so many of Sheffield United’s fixtures pitting them against low-performing attacks over the next six Gameweeks, their clean sheet potential is looking very strong indeed.

Who are the best Sheff Utd defenders to own?

Having confirmed just how good Sheffield United’s defensive potential is in the medium-term, it’s important to make sure we are invested in the right assets.

To do that, we are going to assess their defensive options for their ability to add points through other avenues, such as goal threat, assist potential and bonus.

Last six matches

The busiest FPL defenders among Sheffield United’s ranks over the last six Gameweeks have been John Egan (£4.5m) and John Lundstram (£5.1m) with seven and five each.

The former has largely been a threat from set-pieces, five of his seven penalty box shots coming from his head and only one going down as a big chance.

Meanwhile, Lundstram’s efforts have largely been from open play although, of course, he has been on the bench for the last two matches in all competitions, against Manchester City and Millwall, putting his place in the side under threat from Muhamed Bešić (£4.4m).

Outside of Egan and Lundstram, Chris Basham (£4.5m) has registered just two shots in the box in the specified period, George Baldock (£5.1m) and Jack O’Connell (£4.6m) have one each while Enda Stevens (£5.1m) hasn’t managed any at all.

Last six matches

Sheffield United’s defenders compare even less favourably for accuracy.

Egan, despite his relative deluge of headed efforts in the box over the last six Gameweeks, has no shots on target to show for it.

Lundstram, Basham, Baldock and Stevens have also not registered a single effort on target in that time.

Therefore, it’s hard to get too excited about any of the defensive assets adding goals to their game regularly. The top two for shots in the box both have drawbacks, in that even the busy Egan has not been very accurate while Lundstram’s place is under threat.

Last six matches

It seems much more likely that assists will come from the Sheffield United defence than goals.

As you can see in the table above, over the last six Gameweeks, only Oliver Norwood (£4.9m) has played more key passes (10) than left-back Stevens (eight).

Two of these have created big chances, only Norwood and John Fleck (£5.0m), both on three, fashioning more of these in their last six matches than Stevens.

Interestingly, despite fewer key passes (four), overlapping centre-back O’Connell has also created two big chances in the specified time-frame.

Meanwhile, Baldock has created three chances, Lundstram just one and Egan zero in their last six matches.

Last six matches

Henderson throws his name into the hat when we assess bonus potential.

Over the last six Gameweeks, the goalkeeper has been fourth-best among Sheffield United players, and top out of all defensive assets, for minutes per baseline bonus point.

That means he has accrued bonus points at a faster rate than any of the Blades’ defenders in that time.

Not too far behind him, on a baseline bonus point every 6.8 and 6.9 minutes respectively, are those two creators again, Stevens and O’Connell, boosted by their assist potential.

Last six matches

Conclusion

Sheff Utd’s defence looks a good source of investment over the next six Gameweeks

Sheffield United’s clean sheet potential differs slightly to what we would expect from one of the bigger clubs such as Liverpool or Manchester City.

These teams often rely on stifling the opposition to such an extent that they don’t have enough possession to register a high volume of shots in the box, let alone big chances.

By contrast, Wilder’s men, despite emulating Liverpool’s knack for limiting penalty box action en masse, still give up a much higher total of big chances than half of the top flight’s teams.

However, this potential weakness in the Blades’ back-line is met in almost equal measure by the excellent work of their goalkeeper Henderson who, according to the Opta data, has been more of an influence on Sheffield United’s defensive capabilities than any other team’s shot-stopper to their own in 2019/20.

On merit alone, it seems that, at this stage, Henderson, Stevens and O’Connell are the best Sheffield United defenders to own for their current run.

When we throw value into the equation, most of them largely hold their own, considering none of them costs more than £5.2m.

Enda Stevens looks like a great option

However, Stevens may require some serious commitment and confidence in his services, considering that O’Connell can offer a similar level of assist potential as well as a saving of £0.5m.

That said, given the clean sheet potential on offer for Sheffield United over a relatively prolonged period, investing in a double-up seems highly advisable.

Even a defensive triple-up seems hardly out of the question considering the dearth of midfield and forward options on offer at Bramall Lane. Remember, the Blades sit in the Premier League’s bottom two for shots on target over the last six Gameweeks.

We also have to discuss the much-loved FPL legend that is Lundstram, as he has largely crept under the radar in this article.

Unfortunately, it is looking bleak for his army of followers, of which the author of this article has been one in chief since late June/early July.

Lundstram’s Fantasy credentials have suffered a blow recently

Not only is Lundstram’s place in the team under serious threat from a resurgent Bešić, who has played relatively well in his last two outings, but the former Oxford United midfielder has shown something of a drop-off in his underlying statistics of late.

Yes, he has five shots in the box over his last six league matches but none of them has been a big chance or on target.

Meanwhile, despite showing some excellent creativity earlier in the season – after the first six Gameweeks, he was behind only Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) for big chances created – Lundstram has now played just one key pass since Gameweek 19.

Whether that’s enough to justify selling the so-called ‘Lord’ may differ depending on the Fantasy manager. Those who owned him from Gameweek 1 have a considerable amount tied up in the player, but if he is not playing regularly anymore, could it burning a hole in their pocket?

The fact that both Stevens and O’Connell both look like better routes into the Sheffield United defence could tip the scales for any Lundstram owners looking at a Wildcard right now.

Which FPL assets topped goal threat, creativity and clean sheets this month?

    What would you do with this team?

    Gazza
    TAA - Kelly - Rico
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Martial - Grealish
    Vardy - Ings

    Button - Greenwood - Lundstram - Williams

    1ft, 0,1 itb

    I'm thinking of:

    A) Mane + Williams -> Alli + Robbo (-4)
    or
    B) Mane + Williams -> Son + VVD (-4)

    Which one is better? I don't have goalkeeper next gw but I want to do Gazza -> McCarthy and McCarhy has Liverpool next so he won't probably get more than 2 points so I can do that move after Southamptons game against Liverpool.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B for me. Prefer Son to Alli always a good FPL option.

  2. Jarvish Scott Talent
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    So it looks likely Mane will be out injured for 1 gameweek. Is this really an automatic sell? Is anyone keeping?

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If you own Salah too then it's a bench. Otherwise it's a switch-eroo.

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        These were my initial thoughts too. Saves me the benching headache I was going to have as well 🙂

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I think he might be eased back into the team in the Norwich game. 2nd half appearance against Norwich! Surely starts against Atletico!

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That's good enough to get points. Just not good enough to captain 🙂

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          That's a good point indeed!

    3. El Presidente
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Im keeping, he is in my squad back from the day he was 11.5m.... defo NOT selling because he will miss SOU in GW25

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        What if he ends up not playing vs Norwich tho?

        Think Im selling, losing 0.5, and will get him back for GW27.

    4. tisza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      goes for me as no money tied up.
      Double Pool defence attractive and funds for other upgrades.
      Still have Salah.

    5. FeverPitch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I’ve been hoping for an easy chance to get Kun in, and selling Mane for a -4 gets me that. Have Salah too. However, could just get Jimmy for free instead and hold onto Mane, which might be more sensible

  3. davies
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Any point in keeping/benching Mané for the Southampton game?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If you bought him for 11.5 then sure

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Two actually:
      1) Only one FT and if you're bench is ok you should handle it
      2) Money tied up for long term owners (like me)

  4. Miniboss
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Time to gain some ground, who would come in to midfield? Money no object.

    Mane & Vardy -> ? & Aguero

    Ryan Button
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Kelly Holgate
    KdB Salah Mane Grealish Dendoncker
    DCL Ings Vardy

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years

      Sterling or Mahrez, Pepe for a punt

  5. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Sidibé + Mané + DCL -> Robbo + Traore + Auba (-4) yay or nay?

  6. The Mighty Whites
    • 5 Years

    1FT, 0.4 ITB, thoughts?

    Guaita, Button

    TAA, Fernandez, Lundstram, Webster, Rico

    Mane, KDB, Salah, Grealish, Nakamba

    Vardy, Rashford, Jimenez

  7. benpurser

    Got the exact money to do Mane + Vardy > Son + Aguero

    1. benpurser

      Do I do it?

    2. Rupert The Horse

          This is quite an easy one actually. He's definitely out I'm afraid. Sorry, didn't have time to come on yesterday, but wouldn't have made any difference. Shame, a few of my friends TC the guy.

          1. El Presidente

    3. Sailboats

      For free? Yes

    4. Bucket Man
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Looked at Aguero but fixtures are real difficult and UCL may be priority. Son looks obvious Mane replacement but City this week and Spurs look poor, although they looked better in the cup. May be a good move though but would stick with Vardy.

  8. Bucket Man
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Repost as missed on end of page. Wasted 2FT getting Mane and Greewnood last week. What to do now? take a hit or a better move for free? Not much cover in my team now. Thanks

    1FT 1.2ITB
    McCarthy
    TAA, Sidibe, Lundstrum*, Soy

      Just Mane to Son?

      1. Bucket Man
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks. Think I’ve got options. Either:
        A) Mane to Son 442
        B) Kiko to Lascelles 532
        C) Mane and Greenwood to Traore and Auba -4

        With A I could afford Jiminez next GW just need to hope Lundstrum plays this week.

  9. Lindelol

    have Salah, KDB and Grealish so best replacement for Mane is?

    1. Daniel S.
      • 10 Years

      Almiron for me

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent

      Have you considered keeping?

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yes considered but I guess its ok to sell now. May buy back again

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Salah would still outscore Mane if that happened.

      1. The Rumour Mill
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        You're not accounting for the fact Salah misses the pen in the 10th minute, the booking in the 17th minute for diving to try and win a second penalty, or the injury in the 26th minute which prevents him getting all his appearance points 😉

    3. Miniboss

    Already have triple Liv with Mane and 2 defs.
    What would you do with that team?

    Unfortunately only 1ft and 0itb.

    1) Play the team below and bench Mane
    2) Mane Maddison/Alli-> Salah Fleck/Hayden for -4
    3) Mane Alli - > Salah Martial for -4
    4) Mane Soy - > Salah Lasceles for -4

    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I'm intrigued to hear why other people on WCs are insisting on Fleck as a 5th midfielder? How is going Fleck and double SHU defence better, than say going with Stevens as a 3rd defender? To me, it seems that the value lies in defence, especially with those fixtures. It's essentially

    Stephens (saints) + Fleck
    Stevens (sheff) + Cantwell.

    Your 5th midfielder isn't likely to play as often moving forward, and as current WC's have front 3 of Auba/Aguero/Jimi/Ings, they will be playing weekly regardless. so a 4-3-3 or a 3-4-3 formation looks good. With 2x Liverpool defenders and 3x Sheffield United defenders. Thoughts?

    1. Lemongrab
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Thinking of getting him as a 4th midfielder. He'll get 3 points for every Shu clean sheet but given that they will concede in some games there's still the opportunity for attacking returns.

  16. HaffNanner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Mane, Vardy, DCL > Traore, Aguero, Auba for -4?

    1. Baganuva Hatty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A tentative yes looks good on paper short term. Why the hell not, what do I know. Keep subbing all my points and choosing the wrong captain. I actually would.
      Mane injury
      Vardy out of form v Chelsea
      DCL plays for Everton.
      Auba, aguero and Traore have high ceilings but all have a blank in them.

  17. The Rumour Mill
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Those selling Mane, don't expect his price to drop much. FPL have shown a keenness in artificially holding the prices of well owned, strong performing assets in recent seasons. KDB this season, Salah 2 years ago spring to mind.

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It won't drop much but not for the reasons you mentioned. Being highly owned and flagged are the reasons.

  18. Baganuva Hatty

    Best Maddison replacement?

    a) Perez
    b) Grealish
    c) Traore

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      B

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

    Mané news is interesting. Might just bench him now.

    How does Soy >> Fernandez and roll FT look? Gives me the below...

    McCarthy
    TAA • Lunds • Rico • Fernandez
    KDB • Salah • Grealish • Mahrez
    Vardy • Maupay
    (McGov. Greenwood. Aurier. Mané)

      Its quite obv decision imo esp with ok-ish player to cover him for that one game.
      Hope many will sell him and he will be diferential soon.

      Looks a wise choice mate.

  21. It’s gonna Ben Mee

    Wow! Only 2.48% pic Kun for the armband vs that shoddy Spurs defence. Can be a very nice differential.

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent

      Poll is still on GW24

    Am I the only one considering Sterling as a Mane replacement? I had him earlier in the season, and I realise he's gone off the boil a bit, but his underlying stats are still decent. Maybe just needs a bit more luck on his size? For some reason I can see him doing alright against Spurs/West Ham.

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 11 days ago

      Probably.

      He's been very frustrating to own this season.

    2. Hasselbaink Forever - UJFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      But he could easily be benched

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      just keep

  23. Kevin de Blanke

    Play Douglas Luiz over Dunk right? Luiz been leaving points in my bench lately and is up against Bou. Dunk been miserable, as Brighton seem to have joined Villa and Bou as the whippingboys og the league...

    Bye bye Eriksen

    1. Daniel S.

      He brought pts for me. I am happy fpl owner and with good memories

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Good times

    Just going to bench Mane.
    - He will only miss the Southampton game
    - Better than Salah
    - Lots of money tied up in him
    - I’ve a decent bench to play!

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Agree

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 11 days ago

      The worry is that Mane value will drop at least 0.2 by then and 12.4k on the bench with great GW25 fixtures that my ML opponents will gain points, Also worry that Klopp will manage minutes in GW26 ahead of the international break...….Can always buy him back.

        I should add that I have Salah too...……….

    3. Kevin de Blanke
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Fair play, I sold as he’s now prob going to be eased back, and with Liverpool scoring 1-2 goals pr game I’m happy to spread the funds

    Best mid for under 6.4? Have Grealish already

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Traore

  27. rnrd
    • 5 Years

    GW25, Which one would you play?

    A- Ings (liv)
    B- Aurier (MCI)

    ?!

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      A easily.

  28. MC-HAMMERS-TROUSERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Mane - Sterling - Deeney: OUT
    Salah - Jorginho - Aguero: IN
    = 4 pts

    Going to stew on this one for a bit

  29. el polako

    Sadio "The dream shatter" Mane.

    I have no luck whatsoever with TC chip, playing it GW1 next season after Sane and this muppet Sadio any points will be improvement.

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years

      Bigger fish to fry. Hopefully hasn't lost his place for good.
