    MATCH REPORT

    Plenty to talk about from tonight's game at Bramall Lane.

    Sheffield United took the lead after a Dean Henderson howler allowed David McGoldrick to slot home, before Manchester United hit back with goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

    Marcus Rashford doubled the Red Devils' lead after the break, finishing off a brilliant flowing move from the visitors.

    David McGoldrick scored again for the hosts, but it was too little too late, with Manchester United coming away with all three points.

    MAROONED

    Sheffield United meanwhile are adrift at the bottom of the table, and are already nine points away from safety.

    Tonight's performance however suggests that there is plenty of fight in Chris Wilder's side.

    AS IT STANDS

    That win takes Manchester United to sixth, just five points off leaders Liverpool and with a game in hand.

    WILDER'S REACTION

    Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has this to say at full time:

    "I think there's definitely something to work with today. As I said I feel that we should be on more points but we're not, that's the harsh, brutal fact and reality of it all, is we are there for a reason.

    "We haven't picked up enough points and we haven't taken enough big moments, but tonight has given myself and should give the players a belief that if we do play in the manner that we've played, especially out of possession and we work hard, and we compete and we try and play in a way that we try to, that there's something left in this season for us and more life for us."

    ON DEAN HENDERSON'S PERFORMANCE

    "The good, the bad and the ugly, maybe in a different chronological order, but it's a test and he's always learning.

    "He comes back here, he's probably been looking forward to this for a long long while and to get that start, it just shows his character [for] the rest of the game."

    OLE'S ANALYSIS

    These are the post match thoughts of Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:

    "It could have been more comfortable obviously.

    "[There's] a couple of reasons for that. We were a little bit sloppy, 3-1 up we could have scored, we created some good chances, their corner that led to the second goal wasn't a corner.

    "But then when it goes in it's really really difficult at the end, because they are a handful in a very unorthodox way, but very direct and physical, and they made it hard for us."

    RASHFORD SPEAKS

    This is what Marcus Rashford has to say on starting with Greenwood, Martial and Fernandes:

    "I think we have the potential to rotate a lot going forward, and that type of free flowing is what we enjoy playing most.

    "So we have to as well as we can with the team that the manager picks, that's our job as players and today we got it right."
