Sheffield United rumours: manager target addresses speculation, Everton eye £85m attacking ace
Sheffield United are back in Premier League action this weekend, and will be targeting a morale-boosting three points when they take on Crystal Palace at Bramall Lane.
While the Blades' relegation is now confirmed, they'll still be looking to end the season on a high, and get the positive momentum they need to get next season off a flyer and attempt to bounce straight back up to the top tier.
Speaking after last weekend's 4-0 loss to Spurs, caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom said: “We were on the back foot, we weren’t on the front foot. We know what these players are capable of when they are positive and aggressive.
“If you aren’t either of those things against good players, against world class players at this level, then there’s only one thing that’s going to happen.
“The turnover must have been about 50 per cent or 60 per cent of the time before we even made two passes. That wasn’t good enough and we can do better, no question, because we’ve seen it.
“We’ve got to be on the front foot and more aggressive, because if we’re not then we know what’s going to happen. So we have to respond in the next game, the one that’s coming up the weekend. We know what we have to do.”
