Chris Wilder: “No good getting on the team bus…”

Chris Wilder, the manager of Sheffield United, has emphasised the importance of belief and confidence among his players. Wilder has asserted that there’s no purpose for Sheffield United’s players to board the team bus if they don’t genuinely believe they can secure a victory at Aston Villa.

This statement reflects Wilder’s commitment to instilling a winning mentality and self-assurance within the team, underlining the significance of positive mindset and belief in achieving success on the field.

“They’ve had 15 wins out of 15 at home so always a tough place to go.

“There’s a lot of issues we’ve got to solve on the night but as we talked about it’s no good getting on the bus if you don’t believe or have confidence in your ability or your team’s ability to go and get a result and that’s how we must approach the game.” [SUTV]

Sheffield United, currently occupying the bottom position in the standings, have yet to experience a victory away from home this season. Their upcoming challenge is a daunting visit to Villa Park, where Unai Emery’s side boasts an impressive record of winning their last 15 Premier League games, as Chris Wilder alluded to.

Villa have been a revelation with their performances this season, exceeding expectations. A win in the upcoming match would not only extend their remarkable home streak but also propel them to the top of the table. The clash presents a crucial opportunity for Aston Villa to continue their surprising form and make a significant statement in the league, but the Blades could spoil their early Christmas celebrations if they bring a no-fear attitude into the game.
