Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has hailed Sheffield United’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night as ‘special’.

Wilder revealed the secret to his side’s victory over Manchester United was the aggressiveness, being competitive and also being good on the ball.

“We have to play near perfect from our point of view against world class players and a team that is flying high, all season we have had pretty tight games and not come out the right side, we took our big moments, the second goal was a huge moment for us,” said Wilder.

“We’re always going to be on the back foot here, we’re aggressive, competitive. You have to be good with the ball and I thought we were.

“You can’t sit back and hope to get a result. To score two goals at a place like this is special for the boys.”

The win against the Red devils was only the Blades second win of the season who are rock-bottom in the Premier League standing as they fight to avoid relegation.
