Sheffield United ensured they would not be the worst ever Premier League team as David McGoldrick struck to down Aston Villa at Bramall Lane.

McGoldrick started and finished the move which saw him tap home from a miscued George Baldock cross. And for all Villa’s possession once Phil Jagielka was shown a red card, United held firm and resolute to seal a huge three points.
