United have a quick turnaround from Monday night’s victory over Arsenal at Bramall Lane, which they won 1-0 thanks to Lys Mousset’s winner in the first half.

Wilder admitted that he had a lot of tired minds and bodies after that win over the Gunners, but has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Blades’ first-ever trip to the London Stadium.

“We came through a tough evening and covered a lot of distance,” Wilder said.

“We had to. We look at the intensity of the game and concentration levels from a mentality point of view because everyone had to do their jobs for 95 minutes.
