  • Early booking for Norwood, as he puts his arm on the shoulder of McGinn as the midfielder sprints past him and the referee deems there to be enough contact for a yellow card and free-kick.

  • GOOOAAALLL! Fleck breaks the deadlock and fires Sheffield United into the lead, it's 1-0! Lundstram receives the ball from Baldock deep down the right wing and plays a lovely low cross into the penalty area, which Fleck meets completely unmarked at the near post and fires the ball into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

  • GOOOAAALLL! Fleck once again with the goal to double United's lead, it's 2-0! Fleck starts the move, tries to play a quick one-two with Stevens, but it doesn't come off and instead falls to McGoldrick who flicks the ball over the Villa defence and Fleck continues his run, slotting home from around 10 yards out. Lovely move and finish by the Blades.
