Egan's first PL goal rescues a draw for Sheff Utd

5 Jul 2020
Premier League - Burnley v Sheffield United

Blades defender scores late on to give his side a 1-1 draw against Burnley

John Egan scored his first Premier League goal to earn Sheffield United a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

The centre-half drilled the ball home from the edge of the six-yard box in the 80th minute after substitute Billy Sharp had nodded on Ben Osborn's cross.

James Tarkowski had put Burnley ahead just before half-time when he prodded in the ball after Jay Rodriguez's flick-on from Dwight McNeil's free-kick.

McNeil could have doubled the hosts' lead but the winger shot a great opportunity wide three minutes before Egan's equaliser.

Burnley move above Tottenham Hotspur into ninth place on 46 points, two points behind Sheffield United, who remain in eighth.
