Sheffield United striker Lys Mousset is hoping he can repay the faith shown in him by manager, Chris Wilder.

Mousset has only started the one game this term. In that game, at home to Arsenal, he got the winning goal as the Blades won out at Bramall Lane.

He was left out last weekend but once again came off the bench. Mousset’s impact was instant once again. He volleyed home to give United a share of the spoils at West Ham.

And speaking ahead of today’s visit of Burnley, Mousset said he is hoping to repay Chris Wilder in the coming weeks and months.

“I didn’t get many opportunities last season at Bournemouth. But the manager here has been very good to me and has given me the chance,” Mousset said in the pre-match programme notes.

Mousset has not managed as many starts as he would have liked. Manager Chris Wilder has already touched on his need to improve his fitness so he can play week in, week out.

However, Mousset is adamant he will get there, adding:

“There’s a lot more to come. I’ll be working harder on my fitness. It’s very good to be on this team. I am very happy to be here. Everyone has been very good to me – the manager as well”. 

Mousset to continue

The French striker has three goals this season and has been given the nod today against Burnley.

It’s the same partnership alongside David McGoldrick that worked so well last time out at home. Mousset will be hoping his pace can cause Burnley’s defence problems in what is set to be a wet and miserable day at Bramall Lane.

Mousset signed for the Blades in the summer in what was a record £10m move at the time (BBC).

His goals so far have all come in games where United haven’t lost. Lys Mousset will be hoping to continue that run and repay the trust Chris Wilder has once again shown in him.
