Everton defeat Sheffield 0-1 on Saturday at Bramall Lane.

Following today’s result, Sheffield United are currently 20th with 2 points from 15 matches, while Everton sit in 2nd, with 29 points from 15.

Both coaches the full entitlement. For Sheffield United Oliver McBurnie, Oliver Norwood and Lys Mousset came on for Oliver Burke, David McGoldrick and Rhian Brewster, while Everton brought on Bernard, Seamus Coleman and Andre Gomes to replace Anthony Gordon, Michael Keane and Tom Davies.
