Sheffield United 2-2 West Ham United: Oli McBurnie scores 103rd-minute penalty to help Blades draw

Breaking news

Sheffield United’s Oli McBurnie scored a 103rd-minute penalty to rescue a point for the Premier League’s bottom side against West Ham United.

Sheffield United were awarded the spot-kick in the 98th minute when Hammers keeper Alphonse Areola took out McBurnie.

And having been made to wait to take his spot-kick, the forward smashed his effort beyond substitute stopper Lukasz Fabianski with Areola forced to leave the pitch after receiving treatment.

West Ham had been cruising towards a 2-1 victory after James Ward-Prowse’s successful penalty in the 79th minute.

Maxwel Cornet had given the Hammers a first-half lead with his first goal for the club before Ben Brereton Diaz equalised on the stroke of half-time on his Premier League debut.
