Best possible XI:

Henderson
O’Connell
Jagielka
Basham
Stevens
Fleck
Norwood
Baldock
Freeman
Sharp
Mousset

Key arrivals: Phil Jagielka (Everton), Ravel Morrison (Ostersunds), Dean Henderson (loan, Manchester United), Lys Mousset (Bournemouth), Ollie McBurnie (Swansea City)

Key departures: None.

Ranking their offseason: The Blades kept nearly everyone who helped them get back to the Premier League, including the sealing of a second loan for Dean Henderson. They spent big to bring in McBurnie from Swansea and he needs to score at least 10-12 goals. X-factors are wild here: Lys Mousset, Ravel Morrison, and Phil Jagielka are quality adds. 6/10

Star player: Henderson — The 22-year-old Man Utd loanee was very busy in the Championship, and will only be moreso in the top flight.

Coaches’ Corner: Chris Wilder — A promotion machine, the former Oxford United and Northampton Town boss will get to test his mettle in the top flight.

PST predicts: It’ll take a lot for the Blades to avoid relegation, but it’s a possibility. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice. The keys will be Jagielka can keep up with the pace on a weekly basis and Mousset and McBurnie deliver while Billy Sharp and other Championship attackers quickly adapt to the PL.
