Sheffield United fans were loving the performance of Ben Osborn at Liverpool last night, with social media awash with comments praising his showing.
Osborn was thrust back into the left wing-back slot by Chris Wilder, as Max Lowe missed out through concussion and Enda Stevens slotted back into the left centre-back role.
The former Nottingham Forest man put in a fine performance, too. He helped Stevens keep the brilliant Mo Salah relatively quiet, while he was also energetic enough to get up and down to join in with attacks.
Osborn has slowly but surely made himself an integral part of Chris Wilder’s squad. His versatility makes him a real asset to the club and some of the comments on Twitter last night reflected how popular he is.
With that, here’s how some Sheffield United fans reacted to the performance of Ben Osborn last night.
Osborn very good tonight

Thought the formation worked really well – Ampadu did a great job and Osborn was outstanding

Osborn is surely undroppable. The way he bossed that left hand side, his aggression, tenacity, vision. He held up the ball brilliantly, and made some quality passes and incisive runs into the box. They couldn't handle him, easily MOTM for me. #SUFC #TwitterBlades

If Osborn was called Osborninho he would be worth 120m and playing for PSG
