Nevertheless, a few minutes later Manchester United faced disappointed in the game, as Sheffield United scored in the 19th minute from John Fleck’s strike after a rebound from Lundstram’s attempt.
Phil Jones made a grave mistake while controlling the ball, near his team’s 18-yard-box Nobody was able to judge what the English defender intended to do at that time.
Irrespective of it, McGoldrick won the ball from Jones and passed the ball inside the 18-yard-box which made De Gea vulnerable and certainly spoilt his hard work to maintain a clean sheet.
