BACK-TO-BACK AWAY WINS! 😍
It's all over at Bramall Lane and Saints have recorded back-to-back away wins in the Premier League for the first time since 2017, thanks to Moussa Djenepo's fine solo strike.
Stevens wins a corner
A free-kick from deep sees Dean Henderson go up and they earn a corner through Stevens down the left. Thankfully though, Henderson stays up for the corner and heads wide.
Fleck's cross almost finds its way in.
Fleck's cross into the box becomes awkward for Gunn who scrambles back to make sure it's over the upright.
Armstrong earns a throw-in against Mousset!
Bednarek heads the ball clear and Armstrong wins his battle with Mousset near the touchline and gets a throw-in. Six minutes added!
Keep ball time!
Saints just looking to keep possession now and see this one out in the final few minutes. The hosts do have it momentarily but Henderson's ball up to Robinson sees him ruled offside.
Red Card for Billy Sharp (Sheffield United)
Sharp is sent off for a high challenge on Armstrong!
McGoldrick thumps one over
It's another big chance for the hosts who are really pressing now. The ball is nodded into his path but his strike is always rising.
McGoldrick's effort saved by the legs of Gunn
Sharp's low cross into the box sees McGoldrick flick the ball towards goal after a good front post run. Gunn saves it with his legs! Phew!
Vestergaard makes an important clearance
Sharp looks to feed the ball into the run of Mousset but Vestergaard makes a vital interception before it can reach him.
VAR decides no penalty despite handball appeals
Fleck's corner looks to have struck Ward-Prowse on the arm but it's checked by VAR and nothing given.
Fleck's effort whistles past the upright
Fleck takes in Norwood's pass before trying his luck left-footed and it's narrowly wide of Gunn's goal.
WHAT A GOAL
A really wonderful goal by Djenepo whose run sees him show brilliant feet to beat a number of Sheffield United defenders and slide the ball past Henderson.
Moussa Djenepo (65’) | 0 – 1
Yellow Card for John Fleck (Sheffield United)
Fleck is booked after an earlier challenge on Adams during a break in play.
Djenepo's drifting run ends in a save
Djenepo carries the ball across the face of the 18-yard box before trying to get a shot off to test Henderson but it doesn't have enough power on it.
Boufal curls one over
Boufal takes the ball in from the captain before dropping the shoulder and jinking his way past O'Connell but the shot isn't as good as what had gone before and it goes over.
Adams's effort pushed away by Henderson
Adams gets space on the edge of the box and sends a low drive towards goal but Henderson pushes it out to safety.
Norwood's cross earns a corner
It's somewhat fortuitous but Norwood's cross is too deep and McGoldrick just nudges Ward-Prowse into the ball and the corner comes in but is cleared after Egan's knock-down.
VAR Decision: Goal awarded for Sheffield United [Oliver McBurnie] was cancelled
John Egan is adjudged to be in an offside position as he goes for the ball, so after it ran through to McBurnie who finished it is ruled out.
McBurnie scores but it might be ruled out
Oli McBurnie has the ball in the net from Norwood's free-kick but VAR is checking the goal.
Oliver McBurnie (52’) | 1 – 0
Yellow Card for Jannik Vestergaard (Southampton)
Vestergaard goes into the book for catching Baldock after he'd played the ball through his legs and down the line.
Højbjerg penalised for a foul on McGoldrick
The captain fouls McGoldrick on half way and they take it quickly to Basham before earning a throw-in. Norwood's cross is then comfortably collected by Gunn.
Back under way in the second-half...
The hosts get us going again. No changes from either side at the break. Let's get these three points secured 👊
HALF TIME: Sheffield United 0-0 Saints
A lively opening period with chances for both sides ends all square here at Bramall Lane.
Boufal is denied by Henderson
Djenepo skips away from Egan before picking out Boufal in space, but his right-footed effort doesn't have enough power and Henderson makes a comfortable save.
Boufal clipped by Egan
Boufal looks to drive into space but in doing so is clipped from behind by Egan and Ward-Prowse has the opportunity to send over a free-kick.
McBurnie fouls Vestergaard
Sheffield United play the ball up to their front man but he concedes a foul in competing with Vestergaard.
McGoldrick misses a huge chance
Norwood's free-kick from the left is a teasing one that goes through to the far post, but McGoldrick misses it on the stretch.
Vestergaard cuts out an exquisite Norwood pass
A cross-field ball from Norwood finds Baldock again in advanced position, which is cut out by Vestergaard. Now though, Djenepo fouls Baldock and a free-kick is awarded.
O'Connell hooks the ball wide
The hosts have their fourth corner of the game after Baldock plays the ball off Djenepo, but as it's clipped back into the box, O'Connell hooks it on harmlessly.
Højbjerg caught by McGoldrick
A short break in play as the skipper receives treatment after he had taken a blow to the face battling for possession with McGoldrick. He's ok to continue.
Adams forcing a terrific save from Henderson
An exciting game this one! It's Adams again, who heads down Ward-Prowse's cross only to see Henderson claw it away superbly.
A chance for Cedric!
Saints open Sheffield United up and Ward-Prowse finds Cédric with a pass but his shot towards the near post is skewed wide.
Adams causing problems
That could have been a huge chance! Adams holds the ball up well before playing the ball into Boufal, who doesn't see that Ward-Prowse is in a superb position behind him inside the box and Basham intercepts.
Fleck's effort is blocked behind by Yoshida
Pressuring gathering as John Fleck controls the ball in behind Vestergaard before driving a shot at goal that deflects off Yoshida.
Baldock caught in two minds
Norwood's switched pass finds Baldock in space but he can't dwells on it too long and wins a corner that is cleared away.
The hosts pressing...
Vestergaard concedes a throw-in and from that, Baldock gets a cross into John Fleck who gets in front of his marker but can't keep his header down.
Adams hits the post
So close from Adams who strikes the base of the post with a low drive, before McGoldrick is denied at close quarters by Gunn. End-to-end stuff but it remains 0-0.
Stevens earns the first corner of the game
Norwood swings in the first corner of the contest but Vestergaard heads clear and Saints now have the ball with Gunn.
Baldock clears the the danger
Ward-Prowse takes it and it is towards Vestergaard but Baldock heads clear for the hosts.
Ward-Prowse earns a free-kick
Ward-Prowse gets a shove in the back from O'Connell after a throw-in from Cedric and it's a free-kick to be swung in from deep.
Saints get us going at Bramall Lane!
