Sheffield United’s Wilder on 6-goal thriller vs. Man United: I’ll enjoy this

The Blades and Red Devils combined for a wild six-goal thriller at Bramall Lane, as Man United rallied from 2-0 down to take the lead before Oli McBurnie forced a stalemate at the death.

“Won it, lost it, got a result.”

That’s the Sunday of Sheffield United in a nutshell, as Chris Wilder’s Blades built a 2-0 lead but needed a stoppage time equalizer from Oli McBurnie to get a point at Bramall Lane.

[ RECAP: Sheff Utd 3-3 Man Utd ]

The Blades controlled United for the better part of an hour, but a formation shift and 8-minute blitz put the Red Devils in front with 11 minutes to play.

From Sky Sports:

“Man Utd have opened us up for 10 minutes, their first goal was a bit disappointing, we lost a little bit of energy and gave the ball away. We said to the players you’re not in League One now, if you lose the ball with those four up there you’ll be punished and they did that.”

Wilder said he’ll be happier with the day once he’s wound down in a local pub (We want to be friends with him).

“Ole can take great credit to get them into a winning position, we’re a little bit disappointed but I’d say a couple of hours on, with a couple of beers inside we can look back at a really good game of football.”

Can we come with?
