Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom, insists he is paying no attention to Manchester United’s poor form this season ahead this weekend’s clash between both sides at Bramall Lane.

The Blades boss admits he is afraid of the ability of the United squad to create moments of genius to win games.

Heckingbottom is expecting a serious test, but he is optimistic his side can cause an upset on Saturday evening.

“I don’t know how much anyone has seen of them they can be difficult to live with,” said the Sheffield United manager.

“I have seen teams thinking they have got the better of them and then a moment of genius has won them the game.

“We have to prepare for a long game, tough game they have so many players who in one moment can create an opportunity to score a goal.”
