West Ham United 1-0 Sheffield United

(41′ mins): Lukasz Fabianski stuck out a glove to turn aside Ben Osborn as the Blades finally provided a viable threat of sorts. But when Chris Basham upended Lingard seconds later, referee Hooper again pointed to the spot – skipper Rice drilling low into the corner to break the deadlock.
