Sheffield United look like a club rejuvenated under the leadership of Chris Wilder, and there is currently plenty of optimism going around Bramall Lane after the club’s excellent start to the season.
The Blades currently find themselves lying in fourth place in Sky Bet League One, after picking up 8 wins from the opening 15 league games, which has led to many fans believing that this will finally be the year they clamber out the depths of League One and back into the 2nd tier.
The have kept up the momentum recently with two impressive cup victories. Firstly the Blades dispatched Leyton Orient with ease in the FA Cup first round, running out as 6-0 winners. Sheffield United’s young guns then beat Grimsby Town 4-2 in the EFL Trophy.
Wilder will be desperate to keep the momentum going when they come up against rivals Chesterfield this Sunday but they will of course have to be wary of the threat that former Blade Ched Evans poses.
Wilder should field this starting eleven if they are to beat Chesterfield this Sunday…
