The Blades are yet to pick up a win so far in the Championship but since their last match – a 0-0 draw to Luton Town – a few new faces have been added to the squad.

Conor Hourihane has joined on loan from Aston Villa and United headed down the road to Wolves to bring in another midfielder on a temporary contract in Morgan Gibbs-White.

And a new goalkeeper has joined, with Sweden’s Robin Olsen coming in from Roma, also on loan.
