Egan: A whisker away from nodding in Norwood's fine early cross. Sloppy at times in possession. 5

Norwood: Produced a couple of quality crosses that could have led to goals for Egan and Sharp. Faded in second half. 6

Gibbs-White: Posed problems for the Potters, but spurned a golden chance to put the Blades ahead. Moments of quality. 7

Ndiaye: Took to the stage in United's dominant spell in final 15 minutes of first period. Felt he should have handed a penalty when he went down under pressure from Sawyers. 6

Osborn: Formed a nice axis down the left with Stevens at times in the first half. Quiet in the second period. 6
