What a game at Bramall Lane. The drama came late, but boy did it come. Both teams will reflect on missed opportunities to win this match, but at least Sheffield United and Fulham can comfort themselves that they are off the mark in the Premier League this season.

  • End of 2nd Half
90+5'

FULL TIME: Sheffield United 1-1 Fulham

90+4' 

It just hasn't been Mitrovic's day. He has missed a penalty kick, given away a penalty kick and missed a golden opportunity to score a winner in stoppage time. Oh dear. Not great.

90+3'

That was the chance! Mitrovic has been waiting all day long for an opportunity like that! The cross was put bang on the forehead of the Serbian striker, but from eight yards out he guides his effort wide!

90+2' 

Is there a winner left in this match? The momentum has flowed back and forth and now it seems Fulham are the more likely of the two teams to find a winner! There is still time!

90+1' 
90'

There will be five minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.

89' 

Not so long ago it seemed that Fulham were on course for their first Premier League win of the season, but now it's Sheffield United who look the most likely to grab all three points.

88'

The flag was up! Berge sent a cross into the middle from the right side, Sharp's finish was straight at Areola, but the flag was up quickly to indicate offside. It wouldn't have counted.

87' 
86' 

Despite the lack of goals, this was never a cagey affair and so you got a sense the breakthrough would come at some point. It did and now you wouldn't rule out a winner too!

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Sheffield United 1 (85 mins - Billy Sharp pen) Fulham 1. Sharp isn't long on the pitch, but the 34-year-old steps up and rifles a finish down the middle!

84'

PENALTY KICK TO SHEFFIELD UNITED! The officials have used VAR to determine Mitrovic fouled Robinson inside the area!

83'

What a save from Ramsdale! The Sheffield United goalkeeper keeps his team in it! Cairney's low strike was a good one and was heading for the corner, but Ramsdale tips it round the post!

79' 

Fulham have conceded 11 goals in four games so far this season. This is a team that leaks goals and yet Sheffield United simply haven't asked enough questions of them today.

78' 

Mitrovic denied! The Fulham striker gets on the end of a cross into the middle, but Ramsdale denies him with an instinctive save! The away side are on top at the moment and looking for a second!

  • Ademola Lookman

Lookman picked up the ball 20 yards out and decided to do it all on his own, beating one and then two to burst into the penalty box. Once he got clean through on goal, Lookman lashed home a left-footed strike!

76' 

Parker has yet to make a single change off the bench as we head into the final 15 minutes of the match. The Fulham manager has some options. Who might make the difference?

75' 

There is a sense that this match is starting to open up. This hasn't been a cagey encounter, as the scoreline suggests, but both teams would desperately like to turn one point into three.

74' 

Clash of heads! Basham is down and receiving some treatment from the Sheffield United medical staff after a clash of heads. It looks like he will be fine to continue, though.

73' 
72' 

Both these sides are lacking confidence at the moment and that has been evident in the performance they have put in today. Sheffield United have the better team so far, though.

71' 

He was looking for Mitrovic! Cairney was in a good position and attempted to find his Serbian teammate at the back post when a shot might have been the better option from there.

70' 

The chance was there! Stevens had Brewster in the middle waiting for the pass, but his ball was cut out by Ream before it could reach the Sheffield United striker! Pass needed to be better.

69' 
68' 

Brewster proved himself as a goalscorer in the second half of last season on loan at Swansea City, scoring 11 times for the Swans. Sheffield United could do with a goalscorer.

Here's the change the Sheffield United fans have been waiting for and Brewster comes on for his Premier League debut for his new club.

66' 

It looks like Wilder is about to make a change. Brewster is receiving some instructions on the touchline. Can the former Liverpool forward make the difference for the Blades?

65' 
64' 

The Cottagers have been a bit more direct in this second half and they have been more effective as an attacking outfit as a result. Indeed, Fulham have some momentum right now.

63' 

Fulham counter attack! Robinson needed to make that interception! Cavaleiro had THREE teammates at the back post waiting for the pass, but the defender knocks it behind for a corner.

62' 

Berge was very impressive in the first half, but has dropped out of the game a bit since the start of the second period. So much of Sheffield United's attacking play comes through him.

61' 
60' 

McGoldrick over! The Republic of Ireland international fancies his chances from 25 yards out with a lobbed attempt after a McBurnie knock-on, but the shot drifts just over the bar.

59' 

Wilder has sent Brewster to go warm up down the touchline. You have to wonder when the £23.5 million signing will be introduced. Surely he would give the Blades some cutting edge?

58' 

Will that missed penalty be a wake up call to Sheffield United? What was Robinson doing with his arm that high above his head? The Blades have got away with one, there!

57'

PENALTY MISSED! Mitrovic goes down the middle, Ramsdale dived out of the way, but the Fulham striker clips the top of the bar with his shot. Oh dear. It's just not happening for the Cottagers at the moment.

55'

PENALTY KICK TO FULHAM! The referee points to the spot after a clear handball by Robinson and Fulham have a huge chance here!

54' 

Lookman took a knock after that last goalscoring chance. Ramsdale clattered into the Fulham attacker, but he looks fine to continue. Indeed, he's back on his feet and on the pitch.

53' 
51' 

One wonders if Parker has instructed his side to play more crosses into the middle. That last chance was the first time Fulham have done that and it caused mayhem for the home side.

50'

Ramsdale makes amends! The Sheffield United goalkeeper fumbles a cross into the middle under pressure from Mitrovic, but then makes a stunning save to deny Lookman from finishing!

49'

Freekick in a dangerous position! McBurnie wins a foul from Zambo Anguissa right on the edge of the box, but the set piece comes to nothing. That was a real chance for the Blades!

47' 
46' 

The Blades were probably the better of the two teams in the first half, they certainly had the better of the chances, but the deadlock remains unbroken. All to play for for both sides.

45'

The second half is under way! It's still goalless between Sheffield United and Fulham in this Premier League fixture!

  • End of 1st Half
45+3'

HALF TIME: Sheffield United 0-0 Fulham. It's still goalless at Bramall Lane, but the Blades have looked something like their old selves. Both teams have had chances to find the back of the net.

45+2' 

Wilder looks frustrated on the touchline. The Sheffield United manager will surely have some things to say to his players at the half time interval. Will we see Brewster in the second half?

45'+1' 

McGoldrick tried to find Lundstram with a pass into the middle after taking down a ball inside the box, but it was cut out before it could reach the midfielder. Fulham defending well.

45'

There will be three minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.

44' 

Berge to the byline! The Norwegian midfielder storms down the right side and gets the cross away, but there was too much on the delivery and the ball flies over McGoldrick at the back post.

43' 

Is there an opener left in the final few minutes of this first half? Sheffield United have had the better of the opportunities, but Fulham have also threatened on occasion.

42' 

Straight at Ramsdale! Mitrovic strikes the freekick on the edge of the box really well, but the Sheffield United goalkeeper was able to watch it all the way and makes the solid save.

41' 
40' 

Loftus-Cheek very nearly takes down a Cairney freekick to the back post, but the ball wouldn't come down for the on-loan Chelsea midfielder and the half chance disappears.

39' 

There is certainly a sense Sheffield United are on the brink of an opening goal. They are well on top and they are creating good goalscoring opportunities. Only a matter of time before they take one.

38'

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... NO! Sheffield United think they have opened the scoring through an own goal from Adarabioyo, but Berge was offside when the pass through was made!

37' 
36' 

Wilder clearly wants his side to utilise the weapon that is Robinson's long throw now that he is on the pitch. It has already caused a bit of mayhem in the Fulham area once.

35' 

McBurnie pulls it wide! Once again, Sheffield United get in behind with the cross played to the front post. McBurnie sends his finish wide of the target though, although the flag was up.

34' 

This is now a pretty dominant display from Sheffield United. They have been camped inside the opposition half for the last 10 minutes solid. Fulham are under a lot of pressure.

33' 
32' 

Sheffield United should really be ahead by now. McBurnie has had a couple of good opportunities, particularly that last one, but the Blades are struggling to take their chances.

31' 

Berge stings the goalkeeper's palms! The Fulham defence backed off as Berge surged into space with the ball at his feet, but his low strike is saved by Areola, who held on to it as well.

30' 

Goals have been a bit of a problem for Sheffield United early on this season. McGoldrick is the only player to have scored for them in four Premier League games. Lack of edge.

29'

Should have been 1-0! Basham's cross was a good one, McBurnie had a free header six yards out, but the Sheffield United striker has his effort saved! That should have been an opener for the Blades!

28' 

Lookman took a knock in a challenge from Norwood, but the Fulham man seems to be fine to continue. They can't afford to lose him. He offers them that spark they need.

27' 

Berge found himself in a good position on the edge of the box, the Norwegian tried to find McGoldrick inside the area, but the pass was cut out when McBurnie was a better option.

26' 

That's a few times now that Fulham have had some success in breaking on Fulham. That's something the Cottagers have to be wary of. They look quite vulnerable to the counter.

25' 

Fulham can be relatively pleased with some of their build up play in the opposition half, but they are lacking cutting edge when they work their way into dangerous positions.

24' 

Stevens from inside the box! Lundstram's pass releases Stevens down the left side, he bursts into the box, the angle was tight, but he still gets the shot away to force the save from Areola.

20' 

Fulham need to get more service to Mitrovic. The striker has failed to find the net in the four Premier League games he has played so far this season. He needs more help up there.

19' 

That's a shame. Lowe didn't even get a chance to settle into the game before he collided with Loftus-Cheek and that was effectively the end of his afternoon. Wilder preparing the change.

18'

Lowe down again! The Sheffield United full back took a knock in the opening two minutes of the match and it looks like he might have to come off here. Some sort of head knock.

17' 

Parker will be pleased with how his Fulham team have looked dangerous in the attacking third in the early stages of this match, but they have been sloppy in the centre of the pitch.

16' 

Another shot on goal! Loftus-Cheeks is the player who gets an effort away on goal this time, but it was relatively straightforward for Ramsdale to make the save and hold on to the ball.

15' 

Basham shoots wide! A low cross into the middle is blocked before it reaches McBurnie, the ball falls to Basham, but the Sheffield United man puts his shot wide of the target. Not far wide.

14' 

Fulham started the better of the two teams, zipping some nice passes around the opposition half, but Sheffield United have settled now and are starting to dictate things.

13' 
12' 

McBurnie header wide! Basham's cross into the middle is met by McBurnie, but the Scotland international glances his header wide of the far post. That was a difficult one, in fairness.

11' 

Half chance for McBurnie! Egan gets the low cross to the near post, McBurnie side-foots an effort towards goal, but Ream takes it past the front post. That was a decent opportunity for the Scot!

10' 

Tipped over by Areola! Lundstram gets the shot away from just over 20 yards out, but Areola tips over his own crossbar. The corner kick comes to nothing and Fulham survive.

9' 
8' 

Ramsdale stops the shot! A good attacking move from Fulham sees the ball come to Cairney 20 yards out from goal, his shot was a decent one, but Ramsdale was on hand to make the diving save!

7' 

Fulham have conceded 11 times in their opening four league games this season. They need to tighten things up at the back. They have been a real soft touch in defence so far.

6' 

The TV cameras show Brewster in the stands at Bramall Lane. Will we see the striker at some point in this match? It's fair to say Sheffield United are excited about the young striker.

5' 

Lowe is back on his feet after receiving some treatment. It seems the Sheffield United medical staff were only taking precautions, which is good. The full back is back on the pitch.

4' 
3'

Lowe is down! The Sheffield United debutant is down on the ground after a collision with Loftus-Cheek. The medical staff are taking their time with Lowe here. Does he have a neck problem?

2' 

Loftus-Cheek is in the Fulham team for the first time since his deadline day move from Chelsea. Can the midfielder make the difference for the Cottagers? They need someone like him.
