Sheffield United won the battle of the basement as they dispatched West Brom 2-1 at Bramall Lane this evening.
Overall, the Blades deserved the win. A stirring second half display was a throwback to last season and Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp ensured that the three points remained in Sheffield this evening.
Chris Wilder must have got into his team at half-time. A lacklustre opening 45 had threatened to derail recent good form, with Albion leading through a goal from Matty Phillips
But an injury to George Baldock proved a turning point as Bogle ended up back in his favoured right wing-back role and he got his goal.
However, while Sharp and Bogle got the goals, it was Ethan Ampadu who was the talk of some Sheffield United fans on Twitter.
The Chelsea loanee seems to be growing in confidence every game and social media was awash with praise for the 20-year-old Wales defender.
With that, here’s how some Sheffield United fans reacted to the performance of Ethan Ampadu against West Brom this evening.
Bash was outstanding, Bogle did very well in two positions too. Fleck, McGoldrick and Ampadu get credit too.
Scary ending though

Ramsdale excellent again. Ampadu, unbelievable. Billy Sharp doing Billy Sharp things. McBurnie changed the game. Fleck back to himself. Onwards and upwards.

Seriously. I said leave Ampadu in London, I said I hated him.
But my god had that bloke done bits in the last couple of games.

Ampadu is like a different player now to before Christmas! Definitely a CB. This is the Ampadu we wanted when he signed. #twitterblades #CFC
