Game Report

Highlights

Substitute Billy Sharp grabbed a late equaliser to give Sheffield United a deserved point on their return to the Premier League. Bournemouth had earlier gone ahead through Chris Mepham but couldn't hold on for the win.

Detail

The Blades flew out of the traps and nearly took the lead inside the first minute, McGoldrick's effort was saved well by Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale on his first professional start for the club.

The Cherries struggled to get going and found themselves on the back foot for the majority of the first-half. Ramsdale involved again before the break, keeping out Robinson's effort.

The Blades continued to be the better side in the second period with McGoldrick again coming close, this time flashing a shot just wide of the post.

The Cherries eventually began to find some joy especially from set pieces and they took the lead in that fashion. Ryan Fraser's delivery eventually forced in by Chris Mepham.

It didn't look like the Blades were going to find a way back despite their gallant efforts but with minutes remaining substitute Billy Sharp poked home in the box to cue wild celebrations from the visitors.

Summary

Bournemouth were not at their best but did improve in the second-half, they will need to produce better displays on home soil this season if they are going to stay clear of the lower reaches. There will be tougher tests to come for Sheffield United but they impressed on their Premier League return and manager Chris Wilder has got a well oiled organised outfit that will be tough to beat.
