Burnley 1 Sheffield United 0 - player ratings

The Clarets kept a sixth clean sheet of the campaign as skipper Ben Mee's first half header proved to be enough to blunt the Blades at Turf Moor.

Mee rose above Ethan Ampadu to head Robbie Brady's corner beyond Aaron Ramsdale, who had already made a couple of outstanding saves to keep out Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood.

Burnley defended doggedly to preserve their slender lead, though Nick Pope was only called into action when saving David McGoldrick's strike.

The home side, who have clocked up 11 points from their last five games, climbed above Brighton in the Premier League while Sheffield United were left without a win in 16 games.
