The Blades made it six games unbeaten as they drew 3-3 with Man United.
In a pulsating affair at Bramall Lane, the Blades chucked away a two goal lead and ultimately settled for a point.
On a day of high drama, John Fleck and Lys Mousset had deservedly put Chris Wilder’s men 2-0 up. However, a blistering 10 minute spell from Man United got them back in the game.
First, Brandon Williams fired in superbly at the back post. Marcus Rashford then brilliantly crossed for Mason Greenwood to draw level. Rashford wasn’t done there, though, as he tucked away Dan James’ pull-back for 3-2.
Despite going behind, the Blades had one last throw of the dice in the tank and Oli McBurnie was the hero. The big Scotland striker firing in and sealing a draw, despite a lengthy VAR wait.
Following a brilliant game and a ferocious atmosphere, we gave our Sheffield United player ratings:
MORE UNITED STORIES
Simon Moore – 7
Could do little about any of the goals really. A slight question over the third but he had a decision to make and tried to cut out the pull-back at the near post. Will be disappointed to conceded three, mind.
George Baldock – 7
Comfortable once again and looks every bit the Premier League wing-back. Opened up for the third goal but that was an excellent bit of play by the away side.
Chris Basham – 7
Did little wrong and won plenty of challenges, especially first half. Tired somewhat towards the end but was his usual reliable and full-blooded self.
Phil Jagielka – 7
But for the goals, he was pretty much faultless as he dealt with the threat from United’s front three. Agonisingly close to cutting the third out but caught out somewhat for Greenwood’s leveller.
Jack O’Connell – 7
Another assured display from O’Connell. Dealt well with Maguire at set-plays and was his usual self at the back. Didn’t quite get forward as often as he might have liked.
Enda Stevens – 8
Grows in confidence and belief with each passing week. Did brilliantly for the equalising goal in the dying embers of the game and got up and down as usual.
Ollie Norwood – 7
Calm, assured, and drew Man United players towards him all game. Superb ball out to Stevens to prompt the leveller and is crucial to the whole system for the Blades.
John Lundstram – 7
Another fine performance by Lundstram. He was kept out by De Gea who made an excellent save on the volley. Will get more goals through the season if he continues as is.
John Fleck – 9
Has been immense since his return from injury and put in arguably his best performance to date. Looked assured with the ball and got another goal. Scotland simply have to play him.
David McGoldrick – 8
Another excellent display from McGoldrick. Could have scored but for a superb De Gea save and once again dragged defenders and midfielders all over the pitch.
Lys Mousset – 8.5
Superb up until being replaced. Set up the opener and scored a wonderful second off a superb Fleck pass. Blades fans will be hoping his injury is nothing serious.
Oli McBurnie – 7
Deserved his goal after a difficult few weeks and he’ll be hoping to kick on going forward.
Billy Sharp – 6
His usual busy self but limited in chances. Will be starting to think his goal at Bournemouth might be his only strike of the season!
Callum Robinson – 6
Contributed enough and brought energy when he came on. A lovely piece of play too to set up McBurnie for the last-gasp equaliser.
