Ahead of Saturday's clash against Chelsea, boss Chris Wilder recalls United's stirring second-half fightback in the corresponding fixture at Stamford Bridge in August.

The Blades trailed to a Tammy Abraham brace at the break in the capital, only for United to mount a comeback against the odds following some words of wisdom from Wilder, ending with them securing a share of the spoils following Kurt Zouma's own-goal.

The United boss admits that result meant that bit more given the opposition and says Callum Robinson scoring the third goal of the contest was a huge moment.

The second half showing gave the players confidence and belief according to the boss, who says he looks back on that afternoon as an important one in the Blades campaign.
