Manchester United failed in their pursuit to get back to the summit of the English Premier league last night after losing to Sheffield United. Sky Sports reported on Wednesday January 27 that Sheffield United beat the Red Devils 2-1.

Manchester United answered through captain Harry Maguire who scored in the 64th minute to draw the hosts level. The match seemed to be in United’s favor with chances coming all over.
A surprise goal from Oliver Burke in the 74th minute was, however, a bitter revelation as United failed to comeback from it.

Leicester City are in third spot a point below Manchester United. Manchester United’s next game comes against London rivals Arsenal who are in 9th position with 30 points.
