Speaking ahead of Sunday's trip to face Arsenal, Chris Wilder says his players are in good spirits and have enjoyed a productive week on the training ground.

The boss understandably acknowledges United's forthcoming tasks, including the game at the Emirates Stadium, aren't likely to get any easier but whilst mindful of the threat posed by the Gunners, he and his players are optimistic of getting a positive result in the capital.

United are likely to be without Jack O'Connell for the remainder of the season after the influential defender underwent knee surgery to cure a persistent issue earlier this week, but Wilder was pleased with the verdict of the surgeon and consultant who declared there were no complications afterwards.

Meanwhile, the United manager says he is getting bored about continually talking about key decisions going against his side and the controversial use of VAR across the top-flight.

Wilder believes all managers and players involved in the Premier League are on the same page and hopes to see an improvement soon, whilst he also reserved a special mention for Blades Academy product Dominic Calvert-Lewin following his first senior England call-up on Thursday.
