(EFE) .- After thirteen matches in a row undefeated in the Premier League, Manchester United gave up and moved away from the leadership by losing 1-2 against the bottom of the competition, Sheffield United.
Surprisingly, the Blades, who had only won one game to date, took advantage of a weak Manchester United in defense to take all three points in virtually the only two danger options they enjoyed.
Chris Wilder’s men took the lead in the 23rd minute, when in a corner, two players annoyed David de Gea and Kean Bryan took the opportunity to anticipate the Spanish goalkeeper and score with a header.
The lack of creativity in attack was mitigated by United with a goal from Harry Maguire heading out of a corner kick, but when everything seemed predisposed for a comeback by the ‘Red Devils’, Sheffield’s sentence arrived.
Neither the defense nor De Gea were able to clear a dead ball in the area and let the Sheffield players combine, until the leather reached Oliver Burke, who took a shot that touched Axel Tuanzebe and slipped past the crossbar .
United, who added their first league defeat since November 1, did not know how to react, leaving Manchester City as the solo leader of the competition with a point advantage, in addition to having one game less.
Sheffield United, for its part, sticks its head a bit and continues at bottom, with eight points, ten from salvation.
