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.
Gabriel Jesus had an injury-time goal ruled out by VAR as Manchester City dropped points at home for the first time since December 2018 with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham.
Raheem Sterling headed City ahead in the first half, but Erik Lamela swiftly equalised from distance.
Sergio Aguero flicked home before Lucas Moura nodded in soon after coming on.
Jesus then swept home in injury time, but it was ruled out for a handball by Aymeric Laporte. read more…
