Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder accepts he is under pressure fearing he could face the sack for the first time.
The Blades boss has never been sacked in 19 years as a manager and led his boyhood club to ninth on their Premier League return last season.
In their second season, Sheffield United have failed to win any of their opening eight games.
‘You put yourself under enormous pressure and I put my staff under pressure to deliver and my players. We have to get on with it and try and impact what we can.
‘There’s no getting away from it, it’s not the start that we wanted.
‘But we have to recognise it will be a different season to last season. It poses different challenges for us and ones that we are ready to tackle.’
The Hammers face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane at 2 pm this afternoon hoping to heap more pressure on the manger
