Brilliant Blades Duo Make EFL Team of the Season

Two Sheffield United players feature in the Fifa 19 EFL Team of the season.

The team, which is announced yearly, includes Blades players Enda Stevens and Dean Henderson.

This comes after a successful season for United who finished on 89 points to secure automatic promotion into the Premier league for the first time since 2006.

Irishman Stevens, 28, who plays at left back is in the team for the first time while English Goalkeeper Henderson, 21, makes his second appearance in as many years.

Stevens has made 45 starts this season scoring four goals, 3 of which came in April as he won the PFA player of the month award.

Henderson, who is on loan from Manchester United, started 46 times for the Blades and won the Golden glove award this year.

The Blades have made it clear they want to keep Henderson for their Premier league campaign next season and have been encouraged by comments from Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Skolskjaer.

Mr Gunnar Skolskjaer said: “Let’s see with Dean. He has won a promotion with Sheffield United. It has been fantastic for him to play a year in the Premier League, it might be the best thing.”

It is expected that Manchester United will offer Henderson an improved contract before sending him out on loan again in the transfer window. The 21 year old is expected to start in Goal for England’s under 21’s European Championship next month.
