Chris Wilder is looking forward to pitting his wits against Marcelo Bielsa, when United host Leeds at Bramall Lane on Saturday lunchtime.

On that challenge, Wilder remarked: "Every manager has their own way, we all have our own history and past and his is much different to the one I've taken.

"But looking round the Championship, all managers are different, from Dean Smith, to Frank Lampard, to Paul Warne, that's what makes the division so interesting.

"Every week you come up against a different style of play, different approaches, it shows you the attraction of the Championship, that Leeds managed to attract someone with the stature of Marcelo (Bielsa)."

The Blades chief added: "People talk about the influence of managers, but it is the players who should take credit, they certainly do from me in terms of our start and so should the Leeds players.

"They've got a good group and they've taken onboard the instructions and demands of their manager and produced performances, like ours have in terms of what I demand from them."
