Sheffield United proved in their opening game they’re not just in the Premier League for a holiday, they’re here to fight for permanent residence.
The Blades trailed 1-0 to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium before hometown hero Billy Sharp bagged his first ever Premier League goal to split the points.
The 33-year-old striker has scored 228 goals in the Football League but has only been rewarded with three showings in the top flight.

And they marked their return to the big time with a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth last weekend, Billy Sharp notching an 88th-minute equaliser to send the travelling support into raptures.
Meanwhile, Palace’s start to the campaign was not quite as enthralling as they were held to a goalless affair by ten-man Everton at Selhurst Park.
Sheffield United welcome Crystal Palace to Yorkshire for their first Premier League home game in 12 years. Both teams picked up a point in their opening games of the season, with the Blades scrapping away for a late equaliser at Bournemouth while the Eagles played out a goalless draw with Everton.
A first win of the season is up for grabs as both teams look to avoid the dreaded drop down to the championship.
Sheffield United are believed to have a clean bill of health, so Chris Wilder has a big squad to choose from, but he is unlikely to veer too far away from the 11 who gave such a spirited performance at the Vitality. Lys Mousset is reportedly being eased back into the team, with Sheffield United’s medical department unconvinced by his match fitness.
