Sheffield United player ratings from dramatic draw at Aston Villa

Sheffield United conspired to throw away a three goal lead inside the last ten minutes to draw with promotion rivals Aston Villa.

Here is how we rated the Blades' individual performances at Villa Park.

Heavily involved early on, testing Kalinic with one shot and teasing him with another deflected cross. Powerless to stop Green heading home Villa's equaliser after the Villa sub had the run on him

5. George Baldock 6

Pinged the ball around with his usual class in midfield and helped United keep up their good early tempo, strangling Villa into submission. Gave Jedinak the runaround before he was substituted

Looked back to the Fleck of old in spells as he drove forward with the ball and looked to get going United. Put his foot in when needed, too, and some real touches of class at the end as United tried, but ultimately failed, to hang onto their lead

Given a tough time early on by the lively Kodjia - who was eventually substituted after getting no joy - but had the freedom of Birmingham for much of the first half to get forward at will. Linked up well with Fleck and O'Connell
