While the Blades squad are particularly relishing the prospect of playing the European champions in the Premier League at Bramall Lane on Saturday, Wilder said: "We don't want our players to look at them all starry-eyed and be swapping shirts - and they won't.

"We are playing them on a level playing field in the Premier League and we deserve to be here.

"I don't want Liverpool to come here and think that's the easiest three points they've picked up all season. If they do win, I want it to be over our dead bodies."
