Ramsdale: Made two excellent first-half saves to deny Barnes and Wood, but had no chance with Mee's header. 7
Basham: Few surges forward. A whole-hearted player who has suffered along with his colleagues this term. 6
Egan: Wood and Barnes showed their nous at times and were a handful. Fired a crisp shot over in the second period. 6
Robinson: Sacrificed in the second half as the Blades sought a way back. 6
Baldock: Heart and energy, but one of many who has not had the impact of last season. Saw a deflected second-half shot flash narrowly wide. 6
Ampadu: Beaten too easily by Mee for Burnley's opener. 5
Osborn: Tried his best, but could not enforce himself against a Clarets' central midfield who have been around the block. 6
Stevens: One or two nice bits of approach play. Still inhibited by last year's standards, but pushed forward when the chance arose. Booked. 6
McGoldrick: Tried to make things happen and picked up some intelligent positions. Not many others are on his wavelength. 7
Brewster: Close with a first-half header, but it continued to not happen for him. Attitude was decent, mind. How he needs a goal. 5
Mousset: A surprise to see him start, but did not make the most of it. Peripheral. 5
Substitutes: Fleck (Robinson 57); 6
Burke (Mousset 63), 6.
Norwood (Ampadu 67), 6.
Not used: Verrips, Lowe, Bogle, Bryan.
