They will be without Manchester City duo Tommy Doyle and James McAtee on loan for their trip to Wembley, and both are ineligible to play against their parent club.

Before the draw was made, Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom said he hoped his side would avoid Man City so Doyle and McTee could feature in the Blades.

He said: “My wish is that we do not draw the city, that we do not complicate matters with loans, that is only what I wish, but we will wait and see. It must be discussed, it only complicates matters. If we avoid them, they are our players, and if we draw them, they are their players.”
