Sheffield United v Fulham - Preview

Chris Wilder will check on internationals before Sheffield United face Fulham

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder will check on his returning international players before finalising his plans for the home game against Fulham.

The Blades have a Covid-19 issue with an unnamed player who has returned from the international break, as well as individuals nursing injuries after representing their countries.

Club record signing Rhian Brewster is likely to make his debut following his arrival from Liverpool earlier this month. However, fellow striker Lys Mousset (ankle) remains out.

Fulham manager Scott Parker has been dealt an injury blow ahead of his side’s trip to Sheffield, with both teams still searching for their first points of the season.

New signing Joachim Andersen sustained damage to his ankle ligaments in training and will join fellow newcomer Kenny Tete on the sidelines, with Parker unable to give a timescale on the recovery of either.

However, Mario Lemina has been training over the international break and could feature, while this weekend’s fixture is set to come too soon for Harrison Reed.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Ramsdale, Foderingham, Baldock, Stevens, Basham, Lowe, Robinson, Bogle, Jagielka, Ampadu, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood, Berge, Osborn, McBurnie, Sharp, McGoldrick, Burke, Brewster.

Fulham provisional squad: Areola, Aina, Ream, Le Marchand, Robinson, Loftus-Cheek, Zambo Anguissa, Cavaleiro, De Cordova-Reid, Bryan, Mitrovic, Rodak, Cairney, Lemina, Lookman, Kebano, Odoi.

    Late Billy Sharp penalty rescues point for Sheffield United against Fulham

    Ademola Lookman fired Fulham ahead after Aleksandar Mitrovic had missed a penalty.

    Substitute Billy Sharp grabbed a late equaliser from the penalty spot to salvage a point for Sheffield United against Fulham at Bramall Lane.

    Both teams are at least off the mark following Sunday’s clash, having each lost their first four games of the campaign.

    The Blades, a revelation last season with a ninth-placed finish following their promotion back to the top flight, dominated the first half but were made to pay for failing to take their chances when Ademola Lookman put Fulham in front after 77 minutes.

    The goal came 20 minutes after Aleksandar Mitrovic had missed a penalty for the visitors, and it would be a spot-kick at the other end, converted with some aplomb by Sharp five minutes from time, that earned the hosts a draw.

    Fulham looked confident early on, knocking the ball around with some authority before winning a corner from which Aaron Ramsdale was forced to make a fine save to repel Tom Cairney’s shot from outside the penalty area.

    The tide soon turned, however, and Fulham’s defensive frailties, which have been so apparent this season, were exposed again by the Blades.

    Alphonse Areola tipped over a long-range effort from John Lundstram and Oli McBurnie headed narrowly wide from the resulting corner.

    Chris Basham then put a chance wide before some good link-up play down the right between Lundstram and David McGoldrick created a shooting opportunity for Enda Stevens, but Areola made another good stop.

    The Blades were now looking confident against a very shaky Fulham defence, but the visitors still had plenty of attacking endeavour at the other end of the pitch, particularly through the waspish Lookman, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek stung the palms of Ramsdale.

    Areola made a fine save from point-blank range to keep out a McBurnie header around the half-hour mark as the Blades began to pepper Fulham’s goal once more.

    Chris Wilder’s team had the ball in the net after 36 minutes when Cottagers defender Tosin Adarabioyo turned the ball past his own goalkeeper, but Sander Berge was flagged offside.

    Mitrovic hit a hard low shot from a free-kick which Ramsdale did well to hold on to just before half-time.

    The other side of the break saw the Fulham striker spurn a golden opportunity to make the hosts pay for their catalogue of missed chances.

    Jack Robinson handled the ball at a corner but Mitrovic blasted the penalty over the goal and into the empty stand, with the ball clipping the crossbar on its way.

    Fulham boss Scott Parker turned away in disgust. It was a huge opportunity missed for his team and an equally big let off for the Blades.

    The game became scrappy for a period thereafter and Wilder’s side had lost their way a little, so club record signing Rhian Brewster was introduced from the bench with 64 minutes on the clock.

    However, it did little to immediately alter the pattern of play and Mitrovic’s blushes were spared by a piece of individual brilliance from Lookman, who opened the scoring for Fulham.

    The 22-year-old collected the ball inside his own half and ran at the Blades defence. He jinked past Berge and, after a slight piece of luck to bypass Basham with a ricochet, Lookman drilled a shot past Ramsdale from inside the penalty area.

    Mitrovic should have made it 2-0 but sent his effort straight at Ramsdale from close range, and the Serbian’s afternoon got even worse in the 85th minute when he gave away a penalty.

    A VAR check showed Mitrovic had fouled Robinson and substitute Sharp smashed home the spot-kick.

    Mitrovic then spurned two further gilt-edged chances in injury time, heading wide on each occasion, ensuring a stalemate that left both sides looking for their first Premier League win this season.
