Chris Wilder believes his players are consistently 'raising the bar' and says nobody is guaranteed a place in his starting XI.

The Blades manager was encouraged with what he saw from a much-changed side in Thursday's Carabao Cup tie at Burnley and admits those who featured at Turf Moor have given him food for thought ahead Monday's trip to Aston Villa.

Wilder says he always 'demands' from his players on the training ground and believes that 'competitive' approach during the week aids performances come a matchday.

Meanwhile, Wilder revealed the club are 'ready to do business' for a striker, despite acknowledging one is unlikely to arrive before the game at Villa Park.
