Manchester United moved to sixth in the Premier League with a 3-2 comeback victory over bottom club Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Thursday.
Goalkeeper Dean Henderson, playing against his former club, gifted the Blades an opener after five minutes when forward Oliver Burke blocked his clearance, allowing David McGoldrick to tap in.
John Fleck missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0, which proved costly as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United’s side dominated for much of the match against the winless Blades.
Marcus Rashford equalised for Manchester United after 26 minutes, his powerful strike from Victor Lindelof’s through ball giving goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale no chance.
Anthony Martial ended his 491-minute goal drought by collecting Paul Pogba’s pass and beating Ramsdale at the second attempt in the 33rd minute.
Rashford scored his brace and Manchester United’s third nine minutes after the break by shooting under the diving Ramsdale following a swift counter attack.
But there was late concern when McGoldrick headed in from a corner for the hosts with three minutes left.
Henderson also had to make a late save from a Lys Mousset shot to give Manchester United the win.
Victory moves Manchester United to within a point of fourth-placed Leicester City, while Chris Wilder’s Blades chalked up an unwanted record of eight successive league defeats, and remain nine points from safety.
