The 1-1 draw was a real mixture of the good, the bad and the ugly from the Blades as they doubled their points tally for the season.

Aaron Ramsdale – some good goalkeeping to keep the Seagulls at bay 7

Chris Basham – moved into midfield for the third game running and did a good job there, as well as making a vital block when in defence 7

John Egan – an important early block 7

Jack Robinson – all over the place in the first half but he knuckled down in the second 5

George Baldock – not able to get forward so much but he did his job defensively 6

John Lundstram – needed to show more restraint, landed his team in trouble when he did not 4

Ethan Ampadu – played his part in the rearguard action 6

John Fleck – poor touch when a Jack Robinson free-kick was played into him summed up his day 4

Enda Stevens – thumped a shot wide in the second half but, like Baldock, his most important job was defending 7

Rhian Brewster – with nothing to feed off, he was sacrificed in the tactical battle 5

David McGoldrick – excellent up front, in the hole and on the left for the Blades. Made the goal which saw him withdrawn to try and hang onto it 8.


Oliver Burke (for Fleck, 33) – a real outlet for the Blades but he should have won the game late on 6

Jayden Bogle (for Brewster, 54) – a goal on his Premier League debut 7

Ben Osborn (for McGoldrick, 70) – fed Burke for what should have been the decisive second 7.

Not used: Sharp, Mousset, Lowe, Jagielka, Norwood, Verrips.
