This is the team Sunderland fans want to start at Sheffield United

The Black Cats are set to hand fringe players and youngsters the chance to shine at Bramall Lane, with injuries also forcing Ross into some changes. But what team will he field against the Premier League newcomers? Sunderland fans have voted in a poll on our @sunechosafc Twitter page and have called for Ross to make SEVEN switches. Scroll down and click through the pages to see the team Sunderland fans want to face the Blades:

While Jon McLaughlin may have been a regular in the league this term, Burge has shone in the Carabao Cup - and fans want to see him handed another chance to impress against Sheffield United.
His last performance, in the draw with Rotherham, came in for some criticism - but with Luke O'Nien likely to be rested, fans have called for the summer signing to be reinstated in the starting line-up.

With his match fitness now suitably built-up, fans have urged Ross to hand a debut to the Leeds United loanee.
Handed a start at Bolton, fans believe Flanagan should keep his place - and he is likely to, given the injuries to Alim Ozturk and Jordan Willis.
Another summer signing yet to feature, Lynch is likely to be involved in some capacity at Bramall Lane - and fans want to see him start.
Options on the right flank are limited, but fans believe Gooch should be the man to start out wide against the top flight outfit.
In and out the side so far this term, Sunderland fans believe the central midfielder deserves a start in this cup clash.
Sunderland fans voted for Dobson to partner Power in the middle - despite the midfielder having been a regular in league games in the recent weeks.
Supporters have also called on Ross to recall Embleton and hand him a starting berth on the left flank, with the youngster having dropped out of the side since the opening day of the campaign.
While his impact hasn't been as profound as usual in the last two games, an overwhelming number of fans called for Maguire to start against the Blades.
And partnering Maguire, Sunderland fans believe that Wyke should be given the nod after Will Grigg continued his goal drought at Bolton on Saturday. Marc McNulty is expected to be unavailable due to injury.
