Man United concede late in 3-3 thriller

Oliver McBurnie is mobbed after volleying in Sheffield United's late equaliser against Man United

Manchester United conceded a 90th-minute equaliser after recovering from a two-goal deficit to draw 3-3 with Sheffield United in a thrilling English Premier League match on Sunday.

Oli McBurnie's goal required a review by VAR for a possible handball but it was awarded - to loud roars by the home fans at Bramall Lane - to stop United climbing to fifth place in the standings.

Having fallen 2-0 down after 52 minutes, United scored three goals in a seven-minute span from the 72nd minute to go ahead in dramatic fashion.

All of those goals were scored by academy graduates, with 19-year-old Brandon Williams and 18-year-old Mason Greenwood netting for the first time in the league before Marcus Rashford completed the remarkable comeback.

Still, the visitors could not hold out and stayed behind Sheffield United, who lie sixth in a brilliant first season back in England's top flight.

Man United were woeful in the first half, outplayed in every department and slipping behind to a goal from midfielder John Fleck in the 19th minute.

Lys Mousset then added a second goal for Sheffield United before the hosts started to tire and Man United began attacking with pace as they fought back.

Man United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his players had been outfought for 70 minutes but insists their comeback shows a new sense of belief within his squad.

"The difference between this year's team and last year's team is huge," he said.

"My head goes back to Everton last season (when United lost 4-0 at Goodison Park). These boys never give in - last year we would have been three, four, five down."

On his side's slow start, Solskjaer added: "It's not something you can put your finger on here and now but they looked like they wanted it more than us. We had one shot on target in the first half and it's not acceptable.

"When you're 2-0 down you've got to go for it, play with less fear and just express yourself.

"These boys have shown themselves what they're capable of, but you have to learn from that disappointing first 60-70 minutes."
