The Croatian slotted in at right centre-half against Queens Park Rangers to make his Blades bow after signing over the international break, and showed some good moments of composure on his first exposure to English football.

But his debut was cut short around the hour mark when he went down deep in Blades territory, before the signal came that he couldn’t continue – becoming the latest Blades defender this season to be injured.

But Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom signalled in his post-match press conference that Uremovic had suffered with cramp, after his introduction to English football.

Chris Basham and Charlie Goode have already been sidelined on the right, with the left-footed Jack Robinson coming off the bench to become the latest to play at right centre-half as the Blades closed out an impressive 1-0 win.
