FULL TIME: Manchester United 4 – 2 Sheffield United

Manchester United had to twice come from behind to earn all three points over bottom side Sheffield United on Wednesday in the Premier League.

Jayden Bogle’s opener was cancelled out by Harry Maguire’s header before half-time before Ben Brereton Diaz restored the Blades’ lead five minutes after the restart. Bruno Fernandes took centre stage with a brace and Rasmund Hojlund completed the scoring.

Manchester United moved up to sixth in the Premier League table after another madcap victory, this time against the bottom club Sheffield United at Old Trafford.

The hosts went behind twice, despite dominating the game throughout, before Bruno Fernandes cleaned up the mess through a combination of anger and individual brilliance.

Jayden Bogle put Sheffield United ahead after a loose pass from Andre Onana, but Harry Maguire’s accomplished header brought the home side level at half-time.

Ben Brereton’s crisp finish made it 2-1, at which point Fernandes decided he’d had enough. He smashed home a penalty after a foul on Maguire, then larruped a superb goal with his left foot to put Man Utd ahead for the first time.
Fernandes was involved in the sixth and final goal of the game, giving Rasmus Hojlund a tap-in with a precise cross.
