While the Blades' relegation is already confirmed, they'll still be looking to pick up a couple of wins before the season concludes later this month, with just five of them notched so far this season.
Discussing last weekend's dispiriting loss to Crystal Palace, caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom revealed that backed his side despite a dire performance, and said: “One thing I’m not going to throw at this group, or accept anyone else throwing it at them either, is that they lack effort or desire, because that’s simply not the case.
“It’s one if the reasons I really enjoy working with them, because of their honesty. They’ve always had that, no doubt about it. That’s not even up for debate for me. We’ve got to look, and we are looking, for ways we can improve right the way across the board.“We’ve got an obligation to go out and try to attack these games. But it’s obvious where the issues are, and one of them has been goal-scoring. When we are on top, or getting some momentum, we’re not making that pay as much as we should and it’s costing us. It always will at this level.“Nothing is ever easy. But if you can score in those moments, then it makes life a little bit easier, definitely.”Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Sheffield United and the rest of the Premier League, as the build-up to this weekend's action begins:
