Every angle of Sheffield Utd 2-1 Bournemouth on Sunday 9 February covered in one place by BTSport.com. The Fallout provides the best of the match action, exclusive interviews with managers and players, pundit analysis, social media reaction and much more.

Sheffield United moved within two points of fourth place in the Premier League after a 2-1 win over relegation threatened Bournemouth at Bramall Lane.

The match went ahead despite other sporting fixtures around the country falling victim to Storm Ciara and Bournemouth made the early running when Callum Wilson fired the visitors ahead from close range.

The home side drew level when Billy Sharpe poked home Enda Steven’s pass from inside the six yard box on the stroke of half time.

Chris Wilder’s side snatched all three points when substitute John Lundstram linked up superbly with Lys Mousset before guiding the ball beyond Aaron Ramsdale into the corner of the net.

The Cherries remain two points above the relegation zone while Sheffield United are fifth with 39 points.

Sheffield United 2-1 Bournemouth - Man of the match

Chris Basham

“Basham’s been outstanding whether defensively or in an attacking phase” - Owen Hargreaves

Sheffield United 2-1 Bournemouth - View from the dugout

"We gradually grew into the game"

Chris Wilder

“They [Bournemouth] deservedly went in front and we were hanging on at times. We never really got ourselves going.

“We really went for it in the second half. The belief that they boys have is amazing, backed obviously by and incredible, passionate home crowd.

“When we were coming off they [the fans] were singing ‘we’re safe!’ There’s no comfortable footballers in our dressing room. They’ve always got something to prove.”

"Hugely frustrating"

Eddie Howe

“For the first part of the game we were excellent, really, really good. We scored the goal that I thought our performance early in the game deserved.

“The two goals we conceded were hugely disappointing. When we get the lead in these types of games we need to defend better.”

“The character in the dressing room is massive”

Billy Sharp

“I thought we started well but then obviously we went 1-0 down. We showed good character to get back into it and we always believe we can create chances and John Lundstram’s come up with a great touch and finish to win us the game.

“The character in the dressing room is massive.”
