Mark Duffy says the Blades want to sign off before the international on a high.
United enter Saturday's fixture against Hull City, in third place, but on the same number of points as both Leeds and Middlesbrough.
Looking ahead, Duffy remarked: "It's brilliant to be joint top, but it's a long, old season. I'm not sure how many points we had after 11 games last season, but we started really well and we just have to keep picking up the results.
"It's a big game against Hull before the next break, we're looking forward to it and want to finish on a high."
The experienced playmaker added: "It's clear to see we have more strength in-depth compared to last season. We just get on with our job and we know how good we are on our day, we just need to say yes everyday to compete with anyone.
"There isn't a Fulham or Wolves this year, teams do have quality, but we remain confident of more than holding our own.
"There is little fear in this division this season, I don't anybody really fears anyone else and you've just got to stick together."
