Chris Wilder was understandably 'proud' of his players, following Saturday's emphatic victory over Aston Villa at Bramall Lane.

The Blades roared on by a passionate home support stunned Villa with a dominant first-half showing to go into half-time 3-0 in front.

And despite a more even contest after the break, the scoreline could have had an even more one-sided look to it.

Wilder remarked: "I'm delighted and proud of the performance and proud of the supporters who got right behind us. It was a big game and we want to make it feel like one.

"We had to be at our best to win the game, thankfully and fortunately we were.

"We did it last year, we work extremely hard and we've not changed our attitude. We have to drop on first and second balls and put our bodies on the line."

The boss added: "We leave everything out there, I'm not reinventing the wheel, but we try and do that and also play decent football with a belief, fearlessness and confidence about our game.

"It's been created by the players and our support allows us to do that. It makes it easier for the players to try and do things when there is a real positive environment like we have at the moment."
