Extended Highlights: Sheffield United 2, Everton 2
Relive the four-goal thriller between Sheffield United and Everton, where both teams picked up their first points of the 2023-24 Premier League season.

Everton and Sheffield United drew at Bramall Lane in a wild clash on Saturday.

Right on half time Archer then had a shot which hit the post and then hit Jordan Pickford and went in to but the Blades.

Arnaut Danjuma equalized early in the second half and late on both teams had chances but Jordan Pickford made two great stops late on and it ended in a draw.

Both teams now have one point from their first four games of the season.

Archer ready for breakout campaign

Sheffield United chased Cameron Archer all summer long and based on his finishing on Saturday it is easy to see why. Archer curled home a beauty in his first Premier League appearance for the Blades and then hit the post after a brilliant bit of skill which led to the their second goal. Archer is a fine young talent and a clinical finisher and this is exactly why he was signed. The kind of skill he has to work space in the box and finish is something you can’t really teach and that is exactly what this workmanlike Sheffield United team needs. Everton seem to have found a talent up top in Beto too and this entertaining draw will give both teams hope that if they shore things up at the back they have the attacking talents to grab plenty of wins this season.

What’s next?

Everton host Arsenal on Saturday, Sept. 16, while Sheffield United head to Tottenham on the same day.

Jordan Pickford makes stunning saves

Wow. Pickford has probably grabbed Everton a point with these saves. Amazing stops late on to deny the Blades on two occasions from close range.

FULL TIME - Sheffield United 2-2 Everton

A very entertaining clash at Bramall Lane.

Both teams will feel like they deserved to win it and will be disappointed with only grabbing a point.

Still, it’s the first point of the season for both and there were some good signs going forward for both. Defensively both teams must improve but this is a step in the right direction.

55th minute - GOALLL! - Sheffield United 2-2 Everton - Arnaut Danjuma

What a game this is!

Everton totally deserve this equalizer as Beto plays in Patterson down the right and the Scottish right back picks out Danjuma at the back post with a brilliant cross and the Dutch winger slots home.

2-2 early in the second half!

Back underway in the second half

Everton have started brightly at the start of the second half and Danjuma wins a free kick right on the edge of the box.

However, Danjuma puts his free kick straight into the wall.

Beto is showing some lovely touches up front for Everton but he isn’t getting much help from his teammates.

45th minute - GOALLL! - Sheffield United 2-1 Everton - Jordan Pickford own goal

After looking likely to go back in front, Everton have been caught out by one long ball forward.

The ball drops to Archer on the edge of the box and he curls a brilliant low effort towards the far corner which hits the post and then hits Jordan Pickford on the back and goes in.

That is so harsh on Pickford, and Everton, but right on half time Sheffield United take the lead.

33rd minute - GOALLL! - Sheffield United 1-1 Everton - Cameron Archer

That is a top quality goal from the Blades.

Hamer whips in a dangerous ball from the right and McBurnie does superbly to lay the ball off to his strike partner Archer.

Archer, making his Premier League debut for Sheffield United after his arrival from Villa, curls home a beautiful finish to send Bramall Lane wild.

Everton have been by far the better team but we are level. 1-1!

Cameron Archer opens his scoring tally for Sheffield United as the Blades' new signing finds the back of the net to tie things up at 1-1 against Everton.

Danjuma led an Everton counter attack and his shot was deflected wide as the Toffees have looked very dangerous so far.

Speaking of dangerous, Gustavo Hamer has just had a low shot tipped around the pushed by Jordan Pickford as the hosts have finally woken up. Nice of you to join us, Sheffield United...

14th minute - GOALLL! - Sheffield United 0-1 Everton - Abdoulaye Doucoure

Everton take the lead with their first goal of the season.

A corner is headed down by Onana and Doucoure is first to the loose ball. His first effort is saved but he tucks home the rebound.

The Everton fans are going wild in the away end. 1-0 to the Toffees!

We are underway at Bramall Lane!

It is loud in England’s Steel City and we are underway in a game both teams are desperate to win.

The new boys have looked solid so far upon their return to the Premier League without taking their chances, while Everton have looked shaky at times but probably haven’t got the points their performances deserve.

Today is all about three points for these two teams who have lost all three games so far...

Sheffield United lineup

The Blades start new signing Cameron Archer up top with Ollie McBurnie as they look to take the game to Everton.

Beto comes in to start his first game for the Toffees and Sean Dyche was only able to select seven subs (two fewer than he’s allowed to) and two of those subs are goalkeepers. Injuries have hit Everton hard early in the season but this also shows just how weak their squad is.

Everton team news, lineup options

The Toffees injury list is not a short one.

Andre Gomes is the only player of seven who could play against Sheffield United.

Out are Dwight McNeil, Alex Iwobi, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jack Harrison, Dele Alli, and Seamus Coleman.

New signing Beto scored off the bench in the League Cup at Doncaster Rovers, and Everton have high hopes for the towering Portuguese striker.

Sheffield United team news, lineup options

Ani Slimane is the only member of Blades’ long injury list with a strong chance to play on Saturday, as he was on the bench as Sheffield United played Lincoln City at midweek in the League Cup.

Ben Osborn. Daniel Jebbison, Max Lowe, and John Fleck are all out for this one, with Rhys Norrington-Davies and Rhian Brewster long shots to feature for Paul Heckingbottom.

Blades have taken just 16 shots in open play while allowing 51, and they only have one player — Anel Ahmedhodzic — with an xG approaching a full single goal.
