Sheffield United: Player ratings from Blades' 1-0 defeat at Swansea

Sheffield United suffered a rare defeat at the Liberty Stadium this evening as Swansea City ran out 1-0 winners.

But how did United's players fare? Our man Danny Hall gives his ratings.

Relatively untroubled apart from a superb double save in the second half which saw him deny Celina and then James within a matter of seconds. Had little chance with Swansea's winner because of the quality of the cross

1. Dean Henderson 7.5

Dealt well with lively Roberts on the left wing and gave United an outlet down the right hand side with his pace in the first half. Tricky Celina was influental for Swans down their left.

Showed his importance to United when they changed their shape in the second half and he moved into midfield. Was unfortunate not to get on the end of one of Madine's knock-downs as United chased an equaliser

Dominant in the air in both boxes early on but was caught out by Dyer's intelligent one-two with van der Hoorn for Swansea's winner.
