Snodgrass played at Bramall Lane with Aston Villa, once scoring a last-gasp winner, and was full of praise for the Blades and their manager Chris Wilder ahead of the Sky-televised clash.

"They’re a great team, they’re a very good side, a very good bunch of lads with a top manager," Snodgrass said.

“They have a top manager who, for me, has set the Premier League alight this year with how he has come in and has took it to teams and tried to have a go.

“It’ll be no different on Friday. I’ve played there before with Aston Villa and it’s a very tough place to go, so it’s a different test.”
