Chris Wilder has made 10 changes for the Carabao Cup clash, with midfielder Ollie Norwood the only player to keep his place from Monday’s Premier League defeat at home to Wolves.

And Blades fans on Twitter were certainly impressed with the strength of United’s squad.

@TobyWragg3: First time I’ve seen a much changed cup team and thought, ‘this actually looks really good’!

@Neilcolclough: Wow, decent line up that for a second XI. Hoping they get good game time so match fitness and sharpness goes up

@DavidMckenzie89: Despite the result later (nobody can predict early league cup performances!) I have to admit being impressed with the "second team". We've definitely added the quality in depth that was needed.
