Sheffield United moved up to fifth in the Premier League after fighting back to earn a dramatic win over Bournemouth in blustery conditions at Bramall Lane.
The Cherries took a deserved lead when Callum Wilson reacted quickest and swept home the rebound after Harry Wilson’s effort had been blocked.
The hosts responded well and Billy Sharp scored from close range in first-half injury time after a sustained spell of pressure.
With seven minutes left John Lundstram collected a pass from fellow substitute Lys Mousset and, after an excellent first touch, steered the ball past Aaron Ramsdale for a late winner.
A lot of credit for the victory must also go to Blades goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who made a superb save from Ryan Fraser when the score was 1-1.
The victory takes Sheffield United, who won promotion from the Championship last season and have never played in major European competition, above Tottenham and only two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in a Champions League spot.
