Wilder not afraid to make changes

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has said he will not shy away from making changes for his side's Premier League game against Fulham on Sunday.

At least one of the teams will be picking up their first Premier League points of the season at Bramall Lane as they have each lost their first four league games this season.

The Blades scored their first goal of the season in their 2-1 defeat to Arsenal last time out having lost to nil against Wolves, Aston Villa and Leeds in their first three games. By a quirk of the fixture list Fulham have been beaten by the same four teams in the reverse order.

United have conceded five fewer goals against their four common opponents, while Fulham have managed two more goals.

But Wilder's team have not yet looked like the refreshing side who finished ninth this season and the Blades boss is ready to sprinkle in some of his new signings to freshen up the line-up.

Recent recruits Jayden Bogle, Oliver Burke and Rhian Brewster could all soon be regulars in a new-look United side.

"I've got to make sure I pick the right side against Fulham," Wilder told the Yorkshire Post. "A few players are not playing as well as they possibly should be and I am prepared to change it around, the personnel and the way we play. I've done that at different clubs and I'll do that again if it's necessary.

"There's no big messages. To play in the Premier League, that's the motivation. We'll put a few little things across but the players have lifted me in a way. They've shown no sign of feeling sorry for themselves."

Sheffield United are 2.25 to win the game with Fulham 3.50 and the draw 3.20.
