But how did United's players fare? Our man Danny Hall offers his player ratings from the game.

Had the best view in the house as United ran riot over Ipswich for most of this game and saved well from Judge's well-struck effort. Kicking was composed. He'll play at the top
Brilliant display from the Blades right-back, who showed his full repertoire of tricks and body feints to keep the ball. Never stopped running for the entire 90 minutes. He's probably still running now
Came back into the team in place of the unfortunate Cranie and did what Basham does, driving forward with purpose and putting his neck, and everything else, on the line when needed.
Another dominant performance at the heart of the United defence that he has anchored so well all season. Shame he didn't cap it with a goal when he headed over from a corner. 4m well spent, for me
Shrugged off a poor challenge by Judge in the first half, the two exchanging words, to score one and set up another. As a centre-half. Magic indeed
Another classy display from the man Chris Wilder has described as a Rolls Royce. Some devilish crosses from the left were left begging to be converted. Will impress in the Premier League
A poor early corner was the only misstep he made all day. A superb cross should have been converted by McGoldrick and he stuck his foot in when needed, too

He'll sleep tonight. A tireless display saw him snap at the heels of Ipswich's midfielders as soon as they got a sniff of the ball, and helped United launch wave after wave of attacks
Some majestic touches as you expect from the mercurial Scouser, who got a deserved standing ovation when he was replaced by Lundstram with five minutes remaining
Could, and maybe should, have added a goal to his day when he headed Norwood's cross wide but what a signing he has turned out to be. Deserved his rapturous adulation from fans of both sides
Scored the all-important first goal and could have had another soon after but fluffed his volley. Didn't stop chasing and harrying all afternoon before being replaced by Billy Sharp
Was handed the armband after coming on by Norwood, and had a couple of half-chances but couldn't get the goal that would have taken the roof off at Bramall Lane
Replaced McGoldrick and put himself about
Replaced big pal Duffy with five minutes to go
