  • Blades looking for their first win of the season
  • Sander Berge is out and Oli McBurnie isn’t fit enough to make the squad
  • Blades make two changes, John Lundstram and Rhian Brewster starting
  • Berge and Oli Burke drop out
  • John Lundstram saw red for a challenge on Veltman
  • Jayden Bogle then gave the Blades the lead after coming off the bench
  • Danny Welbeck equalises

That’s when Brighton got the leveller. Heartbreaking 

Welbeck equalises for Brighton

Osborn breaks and feeds the striker whose first touch takes him a little too far wide and his shot flies over. Big opportunity

Phew... that’s a let off

Ramsdale comes out to meet a cross and misses it completely but Connelly is distracted at least and heads wide. The Blades keep is receiving treatment after an awkward fall

United can’t get out

Backs to the wall here at the Amex. Blades defending well but Brighton keep on coming back at them

And it takes a deflection and goes out for a corner which Ramsdale eventually gathers. This is going to be a long final 15 or so minutes 

How are your nerves?

sees Ben Osborn replace David McGoldrick, who has ran his blood to water this afternoon

Here’s that crucial goal for the Blades
