Chris Wilder, the manager of Sheffield United, has accused some of his players of wanting to leave the stadium before the end of their 4-1 defeat against Burnley. He believes that his team is practically relegated from the Premier League after being thrashed at home. With only 16 points, Sheffield United is at the bottom of the table and facing a nearly impossible task to avoid relegation to the Championship.

Despite pulling a goal back, the team suffered a heavy defeat with two further strikes from Burnley. Wilder stopped short of naming names but accused some of his underperforming players of wanting to leave their home ground after Burnley scored their fourth goal. The manager expressed his frustration, stating that it can’t be acceptable for players to want to leave the stadium so quickly in such a challenging situation. Meanwhile, Burnley’s recent resurgence might not be enough to keep them in the Premier League.

Although they are three points off safety, Everton in 17th place has a game in hand. Burnley has only lost two of their last eight matches, and their coach, Vincent Kompany, highlighted the importance of a match-winning performance and the need to approach every game with urgency and fearlessness in the tough league.
