- Yellow cardAndrew SurmanBournemouth
It's kicked off here after a challenge between Egan and Gosling. Players on both sides react, while Surman and Blades manager Chris Wilder square up to each other. It eventually calms down, and both Surman and Wilder are booked. VAR has reviewed the tackle and there is nothing further.
CHANCE! It's the old route one. A massive long clearance from Henderson is flicked on by McBurnie. It skids into the penalty area where Sharp races onto it to fire a volley at goal, which Ramsdale does well to turn around the post with his feet.

GOAL! Sheffield United 1 (Sharp 45+2) Bournemouth 1

GREAT SAVE! McBurnie wins the header from the corner, sending at at the bottom corner where Ramsdale does superbly to palm it away.

CHANCE! Stevens whips a low cross in to the Bournemouth area. It clips off Surman and runs through to McBurnie, but his shot is partially blocked by Ake and loops up into the arms of Ramsdale.
Bournemouth almost get in down the left with a reverse ball to Fraser. He can't quite make his mind up whether to pass or shoot as he approaches the area, and his eventual ball to Callum Wilson is misdirected and intercepted. That was an opening for Bournemouth.
Sheffield United win another corner, but this time Fleck can't clear Billing at the front post and Bournemouth clear.

A couple of dangerous, quick breaks by Bournemouth here. From the second, Fraser dinks a cross to Harry Wilson near the penalty spot but he glances his header well away from goal.
Bournemouth play a short corner back to Rico. He whips in a dangerous ball to the back post, but Ake can't time his header correctly and it dribbles out for a throw-in.
The pitch isn't playing too heavy, which is surprising given the downpour of water it's taken on. The worst of the storm conditions have passed now, but the greasy surface has caused a few slippages so far.
An early chance for hte home side. McBurnie runs the left channel to get onto a through ball, and cuts it back to Fleck. His low drive is well blocked by Francis.
The captains Billy Sharp and Simon Francis are ready to lead out the teams. Your referee today will be Jon Moss.
A few hours ago this fixture looked highly likely to be called off. It’s still howling with wind and rain in Sheffield but the staff at Bramall Lane have done a great job in making this match playable. The elements are still likely to have a huge influence on the result this afternoon.
In the reverse fixture between these two on the opening day of the season, Sheffield United nicked a point on the south coast with a late equaliser by Billy Sharp.
The history of this fixture makes miserable reading for the visitors. Bournemouth have only beaten Sheffield United once in 16 attempts, in a 1-0 win at Bramall Lane in August 1987 when the teams were in Division Two.
Bournemouth have stabilised in the last couple of weeks, after a disastrous run through the middle of the season where they took just four points from 36. Back-to-back victories over Brighton and Aston Villa have moved the Cherries out of the relegation zone, but they’ll still be looking nervously over their shoulder. Can Eddie Howe’s team snag only their fourth away victory of the season so far to advance further up the table?
What a season it’s been for Sheffield United so far. With roughly two-thirds of the season gone Chris Wilder’s men are well in the hunt for one of the Champions League qualifying places. A win today would move them up to fifth in the table, two points behind Chelsea who would have a game in hand.
Bournemouth are without Jefferson Lerma, who is serving a suspension after his red card against Aston Villa last weekend. He’s replaced in midfield by Andrew Surman.
There is a debut today for Sheffield United’s new record signing Sander Berge makes his home debut today, in an unchanged side from the team that won at Crystal Palace last week.
