Sheffield United 1-1 Fulham: Sharp saves the Blades as each side gets up and running for the season with this 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane.
(African Stand) — Substitute Billy Sharp scored a late penalty to earn Sheffield United their first point of the season in a draw with Fulham in the Premier League.
Sharp fired in from the spot after Ademola Lookman’s excellent solo effort had put the visitors ahead at Bramall Lane.
The Fulham winger, making his first start for the club, skipped beyond two players before firing left-footed past Blades goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
Aleksandar Mitrovic had earlier blazed a penalty against the crossbar after defender Jack Robinson handled.
And it was Mitrovic who then fouled Robinson inside the Fulham box, with the decision awarded by the video assistant referee.
The draw means both teams have their first point of the season, after losing their opening four games.
