Sheffield United are having an extraordinary season under Chris Wilder. The Premier League new boys have taken the division by storm, grabbing shock results against huge sides, and they find themselves in eighth place as a result.

One of the Blades' greatest strengths is their willingness to graft. They are a side without ego and largely without big stars - they're more interested in crunching tackles than they are sports cars. Perhaps as a result, Sheffield United players very rarely dominate the headlines - but that doesn't mean they don't deserve recognition.

Speaking to Posh Boys on Drive, every weekday from 3-7 PM, former Sheffield United midfielder Michael Doyle said some of Chris Wilder's men should be in consideration for England caps - and even places in the Euro 2020 squad!

"Sheffield United are having a great season - probably better than they expected - and they all deserve immense credit for that. There's some lads who will have their eyes on an England place, and a spot for Euro 2020".

"Dean Henderson's performances recently will put him firmly in Southgate's thoughts. He's had a great season. Baldock has been superb as well - he's up and down at right back, but England are very strong in that position".

"Whoever it is will be right up against it because the England squad is stacked with incredible players".
