It may not have ended in the result they would have wanted, but Sheffield United can take a lot of encouragement from their narrow 1-0 defeat to Champions League holders Liverpool.

Chris Wilder’s side were more than a match for the Reds, and looked on course for a famous point before Dean Henderson’s moment to forget cost them dearly.

Coming up against the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the Blades’ back-line had to be at the top of their game. One man who stood out in particular however, was Enda Stevens.

The 29-year-old was immense at the back, winning four duels and making three clearances and interceptions – a performance that led to him getting a 7.2 match rating on Sofascore (the joint-second highest of any Sheffield United player).

After seeing the defender’s display, many Blades fans took to Twitter to hail the Republic of Ireland international.
