Speaking ahead of Thursday's Carabao Cup second round tie at Burnley, Chris Wilder insists United's focus this season remains 'establishing the club in the Premier League'.

Wilder is refusing to be drawn on what will constitute a success for the Blades this time around having finished ninth last season, but he cites Sean Dyche and the Clarets as a prime example of what can be achieved over a period of time.

And the Blades boss says it'll be an 'enormous achievement' for everyone at Bramall Lane if United can replicate what has happened at Turf Moor.

Looking ahead to the tie, Wilder has hinted at a 'a lot' of changes in the early stages of the competition, adding the Premier League has to be the Blades 'bread and butter' in the opening weeks of the campaign.
