Manchester United defeat struggling Sheffield United

Scott McTominay scored his third goal in two games and Diogo Dalot netted the winner in Manchester United’s 2-1 Premier League victory at Sheffield United on Saturday to secure their first back to back wins of the season.

On a solemn day for United following the death of club great Bobby Charlton, Erik ten Hag’s side climbed up in the standings on 15 points after nine games.

McTominay, who scored two last-gasp goals in United’s 2-1 win over Brentford two weeks ago, volleyed home in the 28th minute. The Scot’s handball six minutes later, however, led to Oli McBurnie’s penalty which he slotted past keeper Andre Onana.

Dalot scored from 25 yards out in the 77th minute with a fine strike which keeper Wes Foderingham could only get his fingertips to, bringing the Manchester fans to their feet chanting “There’s only one Bobby Charlton!”

Manchester United players wore black armbands and captain Bruno Fernandes placed a wreath onto the Bramall Lane pitch in memory of Charlton who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the club’s history. Charlton died at the age of 86.
