Sheff Utd 3-3 Man Utd: Oliver McBurnie scores dramatic late equaliser
After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had recovered from two goals down to lead at Bramall Lane, sheffield United scored a late equaliser to salvage a point from Manchester United.
Oliver McBurnie’s 90th-minute attack was awarded following a nervous wait as the movie referee as Callum Robinson’s cross was controlled by the forwards examined the goal for a potential handball.
Three goals in a seven moments appeared to get rescued Solskjaer’s largely lacklustre side, who seemed after Lys Mousset inserted to John Fleck’s opener for the side of Chris Wilder seven minutes after the 41, defeated.
But Brandon Williams’ goal after 72 minutes sparked the traffic before substitute Mason Greenwood levelled and the visitors were sent by Marcus Rashford ahead.
That wasn’t sufficient to see off a resilient Sheffield United together with Manchester United ninth in the standings after McBurnie equaliser.
At a game, their rivals were dominated by the Blades for long periods and looked set for a league triumph over Manchester United since 1992.
David de Gea had produced fine saves to keep out John Lundstram and David McGoldrick when Mousset attacked Phil Jones in the.
Mousset teed up Lundstram – De Gea saved whose shot until Fleck sold home the rally.
It went from bad to worse to Solskjaer’s negative beat at De Gea with a sumptuous conclusion from outside the penalty area.
On the other hand, the game turned on its mind, as a clever first time end was produced by Williams before Greenwood scored from close selection.
England ahead Rashford believed he had won it 11 minutes after rounding off a nice move by tucking home from eight metres, just for McBurnie to par – after a protracted check from the video helper to see whether that Scotland striker had tackled prior to scoring.
