Bottom of the Premier League side Sheffield United pulled off the shock of the season after they defeated second place Manchester United 2-1 in their own backyard at Old Trafford.

The Blades weren’t given a hope of winning after only picking up 5 points so far this season before the clash with United.

Chris Wilder’s side ripped up the script in the 23rd minute when Kevin Bryan gave the visitors a very unexpected lead to the shock of the home side.

The sides went into the half-time break with Sheffield in the lead and Olé Gunnar Solskjaer scratching his head as to how his side were trailing the league’s poorest performing team of the season.

The home side did eventually reply and equalised through captain Harry Maguire who headed home in the 64th minute to give his team a chance of turning the game around.

Sheffield United weren’t done yet though and took the lead again in the 74th minute thanks to a deflected effort by Oliver Burke following some very scrappy defending my the Red Devils.

It seems some fans were not too happy with the result and decided to aim their frustration at 23-year-old Axel Tuanzebe in a barrage of racist comments.
