And the Blades man, who scored his second goal of the season at Carrow Road to go with his three assists so far, has revealed the lengths he is going to off the field to improve his game – both defensively and offensively.

“I missed a couple of chances at West Ham, where I should have done better, and I said I was going to practice and I have done,” he said.

“I'm always looking to improve and that's one area that's improved this season. I'm pushing and pushing to keep it going.”

In the mixed zone after the game, a radio reporter remarked to Enda Stevens, who netted United’s opener, that it’s rare to see two full-backs score in the same game. But United pride themselves on doing things differently.

“It might seem bizarre to other people that I'm talking about scoring goals in the Premier League but the coaching staff have so much belief in me,” Baldock added.

“I do a lot of work with Mikey Allen, Josh Kirk, Knilly (Alan Knill), Matt Prestridge, Trav, the gaffer... everyone.

“It's no surprise that hard work pays off and we've been working really hard at it. We're looking at clips of other players, I'm not shy to say that. I just want it to keep going.”
