Sheffield United scored a dramatic late equaliser to spoil a point against Man United, after the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team had recovered from two goals down to lead at Bramall Lane.
Oliver McBurnie’s 90th-minute strike was awarded following a tension wait as VAR reviewed the goal for a possible handball as the forward controlled Callum Robinson’s crossing pass.
Three goals in a blistering seven minutes actively rescued Manchester United, who looked all beaten after Lys Mousset added to John Fleck’s first goal for Chris Wilder’s side seven minutes after the interval.
But 19-year-old Brandon Williams’ goal after 72 minutes reshuffled the game to a reasonable extent before substitute Mason Greenwood equalizes and Marcus Rashford launched a lead.
As if that was not enough to see off a resilient Sheffield United, however, with Manchester United ninth in the standings after McBurnie’s late equaliser.
The Blades played outstandingly well against Man United for long periods and looked all ready to launch their first league win against United since 1992.
David de Gea had already produced fine saves to keep out John Lundstram and David McGoldrick when Mousset robbed Phil Jones in the build-up to the opener, while, Mousset teed up Lundstram – whose shot was saved by De Gea before Fleck brought home the rebound.
It turned worst for Solskjaer’s team as Mousset beat De Gea with an outstanding drilled finish from outside the penalty area.
England forward Rashford looked to have won it 11 minutes from time after rounding off a fine move by tucking home from eight yards, just then McBurnie leveled after a lengthy check by VAR to confirm whether the Scotland striker handled before scoring the goal.
