Manchester United have missed out on European premier league places. Against Sheffield United, the Red Devils only played 3-3 (0-1), but it watched long after a defeat for the record holders. Manchester were two goals behind until the final set, then took just seven minutes to turn things around. Yet it wasn’t enough to win.
At Bramall Lane in Sheffield, the England record holder has long been to be seen, only goalkeeper David de Gea prevented even more goals with numerous parades. John Fleck (19th) and Lys Mousset (52nd) each scored after losing the ball to the Red Devils, who scored only once in the first half.
Only Brandon Williams’ goal (72nd) suddenly made the supposed favorite wake up. Mason Greenwood, who was only 18 years old, scored his first Premier League goal four minutes after being substituted and equalised (77th). Marcus Rashford then took a 3-2 lead (79th). But Oliver McBurnie of Sheffield scored in the post-match period (90-1).
The starter is the third-best defensive team in the league (12 goals) after 13 days of play. Only Leicester City (eight goals) and Liverpool (11 goals) have conceded fewer goals this season.
After 13 days of play, the surprise Sheffield United team is in sixth place with 18 points, three places ahead of the team of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
