We have made three Premier League trips to Bramall Lane, winning twice and losing once. In fact, our first ever Premier League match took place away at Sheffield United in August 1992. Sir Alex Ferguson's side went down 2-1 that day – Blades striker Brian Deane netted the very first Premier League goal after just five minutes – but the season would end on a happier note, as we ended a 26-year wait for the top-flight title. Our most recent trip to Yorkshire came in 2006, when an expert Wayne Rooney double helped us cancel out former Red Keith Gillespie’s opening header. Rooney again found the winner the last time we faced the Blades, in the FA Cup back in January 2016. We've won our last seven clashes against Sheffield side and, somewhat surprisingly, there has not been a draw between the sides in the last 21 meetings. Overall, we’ve played our Sheffield namesakes 93 times in all competitions, winning 44, drawing 15 and losing 34.
After 12 seasons outside of the top flight, including six years in League One, Sheffield United finally gained promotion back to the Premier League in 2018/19. It was far from an easy campaign for the Blades, who spent the latter part of the season vying with rivals Leeds United for the final promotion spot. But, as the Whites stalled in the final weeks of the race, the Sheffielders found their best form of 2019. Remarkably, they suffered just one defeat in their last 18 games.
