The club source shared the news that the Chilean made the decision after the disappointing 2-0 defeat against Everton last time out at Goodison Park.
ExWHUemployee admitted that he was very surprised by one of the changes on his personal Twitter account before the clash on Saturday afternoon.
“One I am very surprised at,” he wrote.
Both Arron Cresswell and Andriy Yarmolenko missed out on the defeat against Everton, with the defender not included in the squad at all, whereas the Ukrainian had to settle for a place on the bench.
There is no surprise that Pellegrini has made the decision to make multiple changes for the Sheffield United game. His side were nowhere near good enough at Goodison Park, and the Chilean needed to make a statement, and show his squad that those levels of performances are not tolerated if they want to push towards European qualification this season. If it wasn’t for Roberto in goal, it could have been a lot worse, and the obvious changes would be for Cresswell and Yarmolenko to return to the starting line up after only missing one game. It is hard to see what change could surprise the reliable club source on Saturday afternoon, given the fact that the Hammers were so bad last time out, and no player is bigger than a single club – so each player should not be shocked if they are forced onto the bench against the Blades at the London Stadium.
