Full time

FT There's the final whistle and a lively game comes to an end with Leeds firmly in the top six as they snatch all three points late on thanks to Bamford, who has three goals on the season.

Sheffield United are bottom of the Premier League with no points and no goals, but truth be told, if it wasn't for Meslier, things could have been different.

 

We'll have a report on this game coming for you shortly. Until next time, this is John Lupo saying take care for now, everyone.

Marcelo Bielsa: Pre-match comments

“It’s very clear the importance of what Sheffield have done, firstly getting promoted and then the season they had last year in the Premier League.

“It’s a team with a particular style of play which is ingrained, well-oiled.

“They have a very good manager, he has been able to ingrain his ideas into his players and the players clearly feel comfortable in the system imposed.

“This is one of the virtues of a good manager, someone who is able to ingrain his ideas on his players and make it look comfortable.

“It is a practical team, very difficult to face and the game on Sunday is a big challenge for us.”

Chris Wilder: Pre-match comments

"You have some great games in this league our focus is to make sure we are playing these every year, but from a local boy these two teams certainly add something extra to a game.

"'Two hugely competitive games on and off the pitch and that is what you are in football for to experience those games.

"We are looking to gain our first points of the season on Sunday.

"Tactically very interesting when you come up against Leeds. A lot of good players, I am not banking on them not being a powerful club this season but my focus is getting us up and running."

Differing starts to the season

Sheffield United have not begun their second season in the Premier League well, dropping their first two games to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa scoring none and conceding three.

Leeds have been one of the most exciting teams in the division to watch in the early going, playing brilliantly against Liverpool in a 4-3 defeat to the champions whilst knocking off fellow new boys Fulham by the same score last Saturday.
