The Blades conceded a spot kick in the early stages of that clash, only to see the decision overturned after a VAR intervention.

That penalty was the fourth that United have conceded in the Premier League this season – the ninth-highest in the division.

It isn’t all doom and gloom, however with the Blades scoring three times from the spot themselves.
