Sheffield United scored a dramatic late equaliser to salvage a point against Manchester United, after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side had recovered from two goals down to lead at Bramall Lane.

Oliver McBurnie's 90th-minute strike was awarded following a nervous wait as the video assistant referee reviewed the goal for a potential handball as the forward controlled Callum Robinson's cross.

Three goals in a blistering seven minutes appeared to have rescued Man United side, who looked all but beaten after Lys Mousset added to John Fleck's opener for Chris Wilder's side seven minutes after the interval.

But Brandon Williams' goal after 72 minutes sparked the visitors into life, before substitute Mason Greenwood levelled and Marcus Rashford sent the visitors ahead.

That was not enough to see off a resilient Sheffield United, however, with Manchester United ninth in the standings after McBurnie's late equaliser.

Manchester United had won five of their previous six games in all competitions to leave manager Solskjaer optimistic about the future after a difficult start to the season.

Sheffield United are away to in-form Wolves next Sunday, while Manchester United face a near 7,500-mile round trip to Kazakhstan to face Astana in the Europa League on Thursday.
