This victory marked Manchester United’s first back-to-back wins of the season, while they remembered the late Bobby Charlton, a club legend who had recently passed away.

On a solemn day, the United family mourned the loss of Bobby Charlton, a beloved figure.

Harry Maguire, the Manchester defender, expressed the team’s heartfelt emotions, stating, “First and foremost, it is a really sad day. We obviously found out this afternoon, and preparing for a game, it hit us hard. Sir Bobby came into the dressing room a lot, and he lit the place up.

We are delighted to win the game, but this is more than football, and our thoughts are with his family.”

McTominay, who had previously scored two last-minute goals in a victory over Brentford, netted a volley in the 28th minute. Unfortunately, his handball just six minutes later resulted in Oli McBurnie converting a penalty past keeper Andre Onana.

Dalot’s moment of brilliance came in the 77th minute when he scored from 25 yards with a spectacular strike that eluded keeper Wes Foderingham’s fingertips.

The Manchester fans erupted in jubilation, chanting “There’s only one Bobby Charlton!”

The Manchester United players paid tribute to Bobby Charlton by wearing black armbands, and captain Bruno Fernandes placed a wreath on the Bramall Lane pitch in his memory.

Charlton, a true legend of the club, had passed away at the age of 86.

Throughout the first half, Sheffield United defied their position at the bottom of the table. They tested Onana early, with a powerful shot from Cameron Archer that Onana managed to parry, diving to save the ball.

Maguire admitted, “They caught us by surprise with the formation they were playing, but I felt we adapted. We hit the woodwork, I know we can play better than we did tonight, but it is an important win.”

Oli McBurnie, reflecting on Sheffield’s season, said, “We have been in a lot of games. It is tough to take, but I thought the boys showed a lot of quality today.

It’s unfortunate I think the boys have defended really well, and (Dalot) sticks one in the bin from 25 yards. There are definitely things to build on.”

Manchester United had several close calls, including Fernandes’ free-kick that struck the crossbar just before halftime. Rasmus Hojlund also had a close-range opportunity, but Foderingam made a crucial save.

The second half witnessed Rashford’s shot hitting the post, much to the frustration of the Manchester fans, who witnessed numerous near-misses as the visitors applied pressure in the closing minutes.

Sheffield United was without their long-serving defender Chris Basham, who had suffered a serious leg injury two weeks earlier.
