The decision to start Daniel Jebbison for the first time was rewarded almost immediately as the 17 year-old marked his full Premier League debut with a goal.

Latching onto some great work from Jack Robinson, the Canada-born youngster slid in to give Sheffield United the lead against Everton and as you can imagine, the Blades fans were loving it.

@Justy1Rice said: “Buzzing for @danjebbison. Great goal on his debut but what an assist from Jack Robinson . Get in lads.”

@RubyMonster added: “Well done Daniel Jebbison perfect poaching position been missing that hunger just so pleased for the lad."

@DanKhan_5 said: “Absolutely made up for the lad. Highlight of the season.”

@NxthxnSUFC pointed out: “Jebbison… That's why you give the kids a chance.”

@ryanhobson7 joked: “Great finish by Jebbo. Now bring him off before he gets another goal and get that long term contract signed.”

@1JonDavies1988 gae some crdit to the assist, too: “Magnificent from Jack Robinson , and buzzing for Jebbison . Movement from a centre forward."

@deaksofficial thinks the striker’s probably not going to be around too long after that: “Was nice having you as a blade, Jebbo.”

And it was a bittersweet moment for @RickRicklong: “Daniel Jebbison was born 6 weeks after play off final v Wolves and now I feel old.”
