Sheffield United: the stat that shows just how important Billy Sharp is for the Blades

There’s a reason Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp has a reputation for being one of the most deadly strikers outside of the Premier League.

He’s been banging goals in for fun since he rejoined the club in 2015, which has helped the Blades build up a winning run whenever he scores.

United have not lost in the last 35 matches where the striker has got on the score sheet, winning 29 games and drawing six.

Despite interest from Sunderland earlier in the window it looks like Chris Wilder made an excellent decision in refusing to sell his star man – Sharp has already bagged four goals in six outings this season.

Can he keep the run going against Bristol City when the two teams play after the international break?
