GOAL FLASH! Sheffield United 1-0 West Ham United

(53′ mins): John Fleck was a whisker away from breaking the deadlock for the Blades – his fierce effort whistling wide after his initial strike had been blocked by Pablo Zabaleta, while McBurnie spurned a decent chance, nodding over after a raid down the left.

But McBurnie’s luck was about to change. Martin’s woeful kick was intercepted by Fleck, who in turn played in the Blades frontman to open the scoring from twelve yards.
