Sheffield United humiliate Man City legend Kompany’s Burnley in 7-goal thriller


Kompany’s Clarets snapped their 17-game unbeaten run following a 5–2 loss to an in-form Sheffield United.

Jack Robinson went from zero to hero, while Oliver McBurnie was the obvious man of the match after being involved in three of United’s five goals.

A Robinson own goal and Manuel Benson’s 45th-minute strike to restore the lead after Iliman Ndiaye had equalized for United gave Kompany’s side a 2–1 half-time lead.

In the second half, it was the home team Sheffield who went on a rampage inspired by striker McBurnie.

The Scot scored three minutes into the second half to tie United 2-2.

And after the hour mark, Robinson redeemed himself when he scored a third goal to put the host in front for the first time.

3-2 quickly became 4-2 four minutes later when Anel Ahmedhodzic, who assisted the third goal, added a fourth for Sheffield to put the game past Kompany and his players.

There would be another goal five minutes later when Sheffield made it 5-2 through that man, McBurnie, to complete the remarkable turnaround.
