The Brazilian converted from close range after good work down the right flank from Ferran Torres, but whilst dominating possession thereafter, we struggled to break down the stubborn visitors’ defence.
Oleksandr Zinchenko and Jesus both forced good saves from Aaron Ramsdale, whilst City weathered the storm as the Blades rallied late in the game to hold on and stretch our unbeaten run to 19 games in all competitions.
As always, our We’re Not Really Here show followed the action, and in amongst all the highlights, you can see how Paul Dickov and Richard Dunne reacted to the victory.
