'Absolutely class': Sheffield United fans laud Ethan Ampadu after Newcastle performance

Sheffield United finally got their first win of the season as they saw off Newcastle United 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

Billy Sharp’s second half penalty was enough for the Blades, who deserved the win overall and had Newcastle down to ten men before the break.

There was a zip and verve about United again, akin to that of last season at times and they really did do everything but score until the penalty.

A number of Blades put in fine performances, too, with some players who have often underwhelmed at times this term coming out fighting.

One such player was Ethan Ampadu. The Chelsea loanee slotting in at left centre-back and putting in his best performance of the season so far.

His display was lauded on social media too, as a number of Blades supporters took time out to sing the praises of Ampadu after what has been a difficult period for him this year.

Here, then, is what the Sheffield United fans had to say on Twitter about Ampadu’s efforts against the Magpies.
