Wes Foderingham – fortunate not to concede a penalty thanks to an offside flag against Vydra 5
Ethan Ampadu – looked as assured as you would expect of a player of his pedigree on debut 7
Phil Jagielka – booked for a foul in the second half but otherwise solid 6
Jack Robinson – fortunate not to be red-carded 5
Jayden Bogle – a decent debut from the wing-back 6
Sander Berge – linked well with Oliver Norwood in his favourite role 7
Oliver Norwood – further forward than usual, he had a good game 6
Ben Osborn – energetic on the left of a midfield three 6
Max Lowe – the Blades best player, strong down the left throughout 8
David McGoldrick – goals were his biggest shortcoming last season, so good to see him off the mark early 7
Oliver Burke – his team-mates tried to use his pace in behind, but were not quite able to 6.
Sharp (for McGoldrick, 62) – Nick Pope got a hand to his penalty, but could not save it 6
McBurnie (for Burke, 62) – unable to take some good late chances and a poor penalty which proved decisive 5
