7:51pm: FULL-TIME: Entertaining game. Hard fought draw for both sides. Sheffield United will come away the happier of the two sides. Fleck is my man of the match. He’s been the centre of creativity and he’s defended when he’s had to. He’s whipped in some great crosses. Maupay played excelletnly for Brighton, defending and attacking well with his goal to equalise.
