Chris Wilder has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Friday's televised fixture at Aston Villa.

And despite beating Bolton Wanderers last time out, the Blades boss is contemplating changes to his side for the game at Villa Park.

He remarked: "I've got some difficult decisions to make yet again, but like I've said all along I'm delighted to have them to make.

"There will be some good players who don't even make the 18, let alone force themselves into the team, but it gives us the opportunity to pick the right side for the right occasion, everyone is fit and healthy.

"It'd be easy for people on the outside to think we will just keep the same team, but they don't see what I see during the week and we have to respect the opposition."

Wilder continued: "That's not us being negative in how we play, but we have to make sure we pick the right team, particularly away from home, the games will come thick and fast.

"From Aston Villa, to West Brom, to Leeds, to Sheffield Wednesday, there is going to be not let up and we must deal with that.

"We've got brilliant options at the top of the pitch and thankfully we've got some excellent players to turn to."
