FULL TIME: Saints 3-1 Sheffield United
What a second half from these two! Che Adams scores two to turn around a 1-0 deficit before Danny Ings made it 22 Premier League goals for the season to secure the three points.
Yellow Card for Enda Stevens (Sheffield United)
FOUR MINUTES TO GO!
The win looks in the bag, now it's time for Danny Ings....
Another for Ings!
Ings scores the spot to make it 3-1! Can he get another to tie with Jamie Vardy?
He needed two to level with Jamie Vardy and now he is one behind with minutes to go! Can he do it? Saints lead 3-1!
Danny Ings (83’) | 3 – 1
Danny Ings has been fouled in the area! I assume the striker will step up to take it?....
10 minutes to go!
This man is the story so far with just ten minutes to go! Can Saints hold on to their 2-1 lead!?
Four in Six! ⚽⚽⚽⚽
Adams does it again with a clincial finish showcasing that form since the Premier League resumption! Saints have had the possession and now have created the chances to go ahead after being 1-0 down at half-time.
Two goals for Adams and two goals for the Saints who have turned this around! Kyle Walker-Peters cuts inside to shoot, it's blocked and the ball falls kindly to Adams who finishes it off to make it 2-1.
Ché Adams (72’) | 2 – 1
So it's time for the second half drinks break and Saints have that equaliser! Final twenty minutes...
WHAT A TACKLE!
Oriol Romeu is there at the moment of pulling the trigger to stop Sharp from equalising! The striker is round McCarthy and has Stephens to shoot past on the line but Romeu hooks his leg round and stops the effort!
Che Adams 🔥
It's been a great couple of weeks for the striker! That goal against Manchester City, the late winner at Bournemouth last week and now another goal to equalise against Sheffield United.
It's Che Adams straight after the restart! Smallbone gambles on a loose ball and flicks it through to Adams who finishes well down low to level proceedings!
Ché Adams (50’) | 1 – 1
Enda Stevens gets a shot underway but Jack Stephens is there to block with a sliding tackle. Still 0-1.
Second half underway!
Can we find a way back, can Danny Ings get those two goals!? Come on you Saints!
Stu Armstrong suffers injury
One worry of the first half was the injury that forced Stuart Armstrong off. Hopefully just a precaution for the Scot.
Half Time: Saints 0-1 Sheffield United
The Blades lead at St Mary's thanks to John Lundstram but Alex McCarthy has pulled off two great saves to keep it to one for the visitors.
Three minutes added on
Not long for Saints to avoid going into the break 1 down.
Romeu from distance...
Redmond again involved down the left, cross gets cleared to Ward-Prowse who is met by a great sliding tackle which goes to Romeu but the midfielder hits over.
Saints with more possession and overall chances but nothing clear cut.
Trickery from Redmond!
What a run in from the Redmond! His quick feet evades everyone as he marches into the box but there's no one on the end of the run to capitalise.
END TO END!
Danny Ings shoots and it's blocked out for a corner. First shot for the striker today...
The corner though is easily collected by Henderson as Saints look for the equaliser.
ANOTHER BIG SAVE!
How good is Alex McCarthy? John Lundstram should make it his and Blades second but his powerful effort is pushed back by McCarthy!
Blades go ahead...
It's a cross from the left that evades the Saints defence and Lundstram gambles behind Bertrand to get on the end of the cross and score. 0-1.
John Lundstram (26’) | 0 – 1
Oriol Romeu runs forward, tries to play a one-two with Ings but it ends up back at the striker's feet who can't get a shot away but James Ward-Prowse follows in and gets a shot away which is blocked. 0-0.
Stuart Armstrong goes down with a niggle and so the referee calls the drinks break. Billy Sharp with the only chance of the game for the Blades and it produced a good save from McCarthy to keep it at 0-0.
Nathan Redmond finds space outside the area, cuts inside but his effort is straight at Dean Henderson in the Sheffield United goal. Still 0-0.
WHAT A SAVE!
Alex McCarthy is left one-on-one with Billy Sharp and the keeper gets his legs down low to save. Sharp looking to cut across and left it too late narowing the angle for himself.
Slow opening 🔟
Not much of note has happened so far at St Mary's. Saints with plenty of possession in defence and midfield but neither keeper has been troubled yet.
We're off! ⚽

Can this man claim the Golden Boot today? Reminder that Danny Ings needs two goals to equal Jamie Vardy if the fellow Englishman fails to score against Manchester United. A hat-trick on the final day to claim the Golden Boot? Dreams do come true...15.55
Get Well Keanu
Today our players have the message 'Get Well Keanu' on the back of their training tops because the Saints under 13 keeper was diagonsed with Leukaemia and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. We all wish Keanu, who has been at the club 10 years and is a big Saints fan, a speedy recovery.15.43
