Sheffield United defender John Egan says his team are good enough to prove their doubters wrong in the Premier League.

The Blades secured automatic promotion earlier this month, with Chris Wilder’s side finishing second in the Championship table.

Wilder’s men were not thought to be contenders before the season got underway but they continued to produce the goods.

United claimed their second promotion in three years to end their 12-year absence from the top flight but they will be among the early favourites to be relegated next season.

However, Egan claims his team have what it takes to silence their critics next season.

He told Sky Sports: ‘It’s all about proving people wrong.

‘You can’t going into any game with a negative mentality.

Yeah, it’s going to be tough there are some really good teams in the Premier League and in some games we are going to be up against it.

‘But we have to believe in ourselves, to try and improve further and stay in the league.

That’s the objective.’
