Sheffield United 1 – 0 Crystal Palace

Sheffield United’s first Premier League home game for 12 years ended in victory after John Lundstram’s goal saw off lacklustre Crystal Palace.

Lundstram pounced just after half-time after Vicente Guaita had pushed substitute Luke Freeman’s attempt into his path.

The Blades should have taken the lead before half-time, but David McGoldrick was denied by Guaita after Lundstram’s cross.

Palace, who have failed to score in their opening two games, was disappointing although Andros Townsend did force a good save from Dean Henderson.

In contrast, newly promoted United produced a spirited performance and now have four points from two games.
