Sheffield United: Fans delighted for Oliver McBurnie after Manchester United goal

Sheffield United: Fans delighted for Oliver McBurnie after Manchester United goal - Sheffield United

Sheffield United produced a stunning performance against Manchester United at Bramall Lane on Sunday, holding the Red Devils to a 3-3 draw (BBC Sport).

The Blades had actually raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from John Fleck and Lys Mousset, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed to score three times in eight minutes to go 3-2 up.

Is Lys Mousset one of the bargains of the season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It looked as though the three points were heading back to Old Trafford, but substitute Oliver McBurnie managed to beat David de Gea in the 90th minute to secure a point for Chris Wilder’s team.

The Scottish international has struggled for form a little of late and, prior to the game against Manchester United, he hadn’t scored in any of his last seven Premier League appearances (Transfermarkt).

He is the club’s record signing after joining from Swansea City for a deal worth up to £20 million (BBC Sport), but his lack of goals have seen him fall behind Mousset and David McGoldrick in the pecking order recently.

He managed to make quite the impact against United, though, and several fans on Twitter were delighted that he was able to end his barren spell on Sunday and silence some of his critics…

Sheffield United fans, how many goals do you think Oliver McBurnie will get this season? Let us know in the comments below…
