Having got our Premier League restart up and running properly with a solid victory over West Ham United, the players should have been well rested for tonight’s trip to Bramall Lane to face now struggling Sheffield United.
Chris Wilder’s side had a great start to the 2019/20 campaign following promotion and there was an outside chance they might make the Europa League prior to football being paused, since the restart their mojo and momentum has gone, so Jose Mourinho would be looking to capitalise on that as we continue to bid for a Champions League place.
It was a bright start from both sides really, but we better dominated possession and chances, and largely against the run of play the hosts took the lead just after the half hour mark. We responded almost instantly though and Harry Kane had the ball in the back of the net before a spineless referee bowed to the overtly pathetic Video Assistant Referee nonsense as apparently (after being barged to the floor) Lucas Moura ‘handballed’ the ball, so the goal was scrubbed out.
Sadly for us, the second half was dire in many ways and the control we did have disappeared and they made it count with two further goals.
Harry Kane rightly got on the scoresheet in the 90th minute, but it counted for little on a very disappointing night.
