Manchester United were the latest victims to be put to the blades by the newly promoted Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane on Sunday evening in the game which ended 3-3.
Sheffield United are currently enjoying their premier league return of a 12 year abscence. Chris Wilder’s Shieffield side have been impressive this season and they boost of second best defensive record in the league this season. One of the team’s most impressive traits this season have been the character they have shown in games after falling behind, and Sunday was the fifth time they have salvage a point after trailing in a match.
The likes of Tottenham, Chelsea, arsenal have all been frustrated by the blades, and yesterday, Manchester United were the latest team to be frustrated by the blades. Infact only liverpool and Leicester city are the only big teams to take all three points from them this season. With the blades still to play Manchester city still in the league.
Manchester United who travel to Bramall Lane for their premier league clash on Sunday were poor in the first half of the game and Sheffield United enjoyed more possession in the game as they dominated United for most of the game at Bramall Lane and they looked set for their first ever league win over Manchester United since 1992.
David De Gea was the only stand out performer for Manchester United in that game as he was called to action so many times. He produced a fine save to deny John Lundstram and David McGoIdrick but couldn’t do anything to stop Fleck rebound opener. The Reds devil put in a poor first-half display and they were lucky to to be only 1-0 down at the break at Bramall Lane. Phil Jones who was guilty for conceding the first goal was replaced at half -time with Jesse Lingard.
All the three goals scored by Sheffield United could have been avoided if not for poor defensive display from Manchester United in the backline. Manchester United had come from behind to lead 3-2 in Bramall Lane, but in just five minutes left to secure all three point in the premier league, Oli McBurine snatch that chance away by equalising at the stoppage time to salvage a point for Sheffield United from a dramatic encounter. The game ended 3-3.
