Chris Wilder is looking forward to returning Premier League action when the Blades host Fulham at Bramall Lane on Sunday lunchtime.
Despite a number of players having represented their respective countries during the recent international break, the Blades boss insists the time by those present at Shirecliffe has been used productively ahead of the clash against the Cottagers.
Like United, Fulham will arrive at S2 looking for their first positive result of the season, but Wilder is adamant neither side should be written off at such an early stage of the campaign, whilst backing his opposite number Scott Parker to build on the success he enjoyed in the Craven Cottage hotseat last term.
The Blades will give those carrying knocks as long as possible to declare themselves fit for battle at the weekend, whilst Rhian Brewster could make his debut following his move from Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Wilder touched on his thoughts and feelings towards Project Big Picture but remained consistent in his opinion that supporters across the country will always be the lifeblood at every club.
