Ben Osborn was making his first appearance for the Blades, coming on and experiencing his first six minutes for the South Yorkshire side.

Osborn, 25, had been paying for Nottingham Forest since 2003 and amassed an impressive 212 appearances for the club, scoring a total of 15 goals (Soccerbase). He signed for United this summer for a reported £3.51m, according to Transfermarkt.

The versatile midfielder can play at central midfield, left midfield and left-back. so far this season, he has featured just the once in the Premier League and also played 90 minutes in the club’s 2-1 over Blackburn.

Sheffield United fans appear happy with his early contributions, if Twitter is anything to go by.
