Game Report

Highlights

Moussa Djenepo's individual brilliance was the difference between the two sides as Southampton took home three points from Sheffield United. A closely contested game was settled by a superb solo goal from the Malian.

Detail

Che Adams started as a lone striker for the first time this season and he was the most dangerous player for the visitors in the first half. The youngster fired a superb volley against the post and then was denied by a sensational save from Dean Henderson.

Sheffield United had chances of their own in an even opening period. David McGoldrick had arguably the best of them when he went through on goal but couldn't beat Angus Gunn.

Having just seen the hosts have a goal chalked off by VAR, Southampton took the lead instead with a special goal. Djenepo held off a robust challenge from Oliver Norwood and tricked his way into space before slotting home.

Sheffield United pressed for an equaliser but continued to lack quality in the final third. Chris Wilder brought on extra strikers but none of them could make something happen.

Frustration clearly got to the hosts in the closing stages. Billy Sharp was shown a straight red card for a high tackle on Stuart Armstrong.

Summary

Sheffield United had more than enough chances to get something from the game but were wasteful in front of goal. Southampton needed a moment of inspiration from their new signing to get their winner.
