Sheffield United’s amazing start to the 2019/20 Premier League season continued on Saturday as they hammered Burnley 3-0 at Bramall Lane (via BBC Sport).
A brace from John Lundstram sent the Blades into a two goal lead, before John Fleck put the icing on the cake by adding a third.
Will Sheffield United avoid the drop?
And the performance of the latter had a lot of Blades fans waxing lyrical about him on social media after the game had come to its conclusion.
The Scottish international was simply outstanding on the afternoon, a statement which can be backed up by the statistics.
As well as his goal, Fleck also played one key pass, completed three successful dribbles, made one successful tackle and one interception which earned him an impressive WhoScored rating of 8.31.
He has been a regular in Chris Wilder’s team this season, starting nine of their 11 league outings to date, and his goal against the Clarets was his first of the campaign (Transfermarkt).
Blades fans were left drooling over the performance of the 28-year-old, with many of them rattling off superlatives to describe him on Twitter. Here is what some said about the Scot…
By the way John Fleck is world yes World class ⚔️ #sufc

Fleck glides past players with ease; whether it’s in League One, The Championship or The Premier League. Bizarre to think he was just an average player for Coventry.
This is probably the best run of form he’s had in his time with the Blades.#sufc #utb #TwitterBlades

Brilliant Blades dispatched potentially dangerous opponents in the first half. After the DF now thinkin this is the best MF I’ve seen at BL. Fleck hitting unbelievable consistent standards. John Lundstram tremendous #SUFCvBUR #SUFC
