The Blades completed a shocking 1-0 upset over Arsenal on Monday, continuing their impressive start to their first season back in the Premier League.
Will Sheffield United avoid the drop?
Chris Wilder’s men sent the Bramall Lane crowd into euphoria, defeating one of the Premier League’s top sides thanks to Lys Mousset’s strike inside half an hour.
Sheffield United have now won three, drawn three and lost three inside a difficult opening run of fixtures – elevating the newly-promoted side to ninth in the table.
However, that wasn’t the only highlight from their stunning home win, with midfielder John Lundstram completing a sublime piece of skill to look back on.
