McBurnie denies Man United victory after dramatic finish





90' + 5' FULL-TIME: SHEFFIELD UNITED 3-3 MANCHESTER UNITED






90' McBURNIE!!! 3-3! The substitute fires home a dramatic equaliser as he controls Robinson's cross before beating De Gea. But wait, VAR is coming into play. Replays show the striker controlled the ball with his shoulder as opposed to his arm before volleying home and the goal stands!


79' RASHFORD!!! THE VISITORS LEAD 3-2! The Red Devils have turned things around! James gets in behind after playing a neat one-two with Martial. He then has the presence of mind to pick out Rashford, who turns home what could be the winner.

77' WHAT AN IMPACT!!! GREENWOOD MAKES IT 2-2! The substitute arrives in the six-yard box to turn home Rashford's cross and square things up at Bramall Lane.

72' WILLIAMS PULLS ONE BACK! 2-1! A lifeline for the visitors as James' cross is only headed away as far as Williams, who fires home on the half-volley. 



 

66' The Frenchman is involved again as he is found on the edge of the box. However, Norwood is well-positioned and makes a timely intervention to thwart the danger. 
 
64' Martial has been very quiet today but tries to make something happen as he lets fly from distance. There is plenty of power on his effort but it drifts just wide of the target.
 

58' The visitors look to respond as they piece a neat move together. However, the hosts continue to be well-organised and difficult to break down.


52' MOUSSET!!! 2-0! The hosts regain possession inside their own half before launching a quickfire counter. Fleck shows terrific awareness to pick out Mousset, who advances with the ball before sending a precise 20-yard shot into the bottom-right corner. 



 

46' The visitors make a change at half-time with Jesse Lingard introduced for Jones

45' + 1' HALF-TIME: SHEFFIELD UNITED 1-0 MANCHESTER UNITED

37' The visitors' attacking trio of James, Rashford and Martial are among the four outfield players with the fewest touches so far today. This only highlights the struggle that they have endured in this first half.

29' At the other end, the visitors get their first shot on goal as Martial tries his luck from a tight angle. There is plenty of venom in the Frenchman's shot, but it is easily gathered by Moore.

24' Good effort! The Blades have their tails up at the moment. McGoldrick pounces on sloppy possession by the visitors before cutting inside and firing a shot straight at De Gea.


22' Close! Fleck in the thick of the action again as he whips a dangerous free-kick into the area. However, the ball flashes right across the face of goal and behind for a goal kick. 





 

19' FLECK PUTS THE BLADES IN FRONT!!! 1-0! Mousset chases a long ball and outmuscles Jones before pulling the ball back for Lundstram, whose first-time shot is saved by De Gea. However, Fleck is following up to finish off. 




15' The noise levels are turned up a notch at Bramall Lane as Mousset embarks on a strong run into the box. Jones appears to be on the back foot at first, but the defender recovers well before eventually being awarded a free-kick.

11' TERRIFIC DOUBLE SAVE! Seconds after getting down well to push away Lundstram's volley, De Gea is quickly back to his feet to keep out McGoldrick's header.


9' Solskjaer's side are also protecting a lengthy unbeaten run in this game. They have avoided defeat in each of their last seven matches in all competitions.

3' The hosts have made a promising start to the contest - threatening the United defence and forcing a corner. However, Norwood overhits the set-piece and the visitors can relax for a moment.

1' The referee blows his whistle and the hosts get us underway!
