Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield United have suffered a shock 5-4 defeat to Fulham at Bramall Lane.
In a thrilling match in South Yorkshire, Leon Clarke opened the scoring for the home side early on before Sheyi Ojo levelled matters just before the half hour mark. Ryan Sessegnon bagged a first half double either side of Clarke’s second goal of the match for Sheffield United as Fulham went into the interval 3-2 up.
The second half saw Fulham race into a 5-2 lead with Ojo netting his second goal of the game before Sessegnon completed a hat-trick.
Samir Carruthers and a third from Clarke late on saw the deficit reduced to one goal but Fulham hung on for the three points.
After the match, Sheffield United fans took to Twitter to give their views on a crazy night at Bramall Lane.

Proud of dem blades tonight. Fulham are a decent team going forward and wilder would have learnt a lot from the team. However the passion and commitment shown tonight is why this team will go far. #TwitterBlades #wegoagain

One thing is for certain, these players will give it their all for this club. Yeah we lost, but we lost trying to win, what other manager throws another striker on when you’ve conceded 4 at home. We always go for it and as a fan I absolutely love it #sufc #twitterblades

Absolute madness at Bramall Lane tonight, full credit to Fulham for bagging the goals and to our lads for the insane attempt at a late comeback, we forget the result though and move forward. #twitterblades

Never say die.
Good to see the team has more belief than all those who streamed out at 2-5 with 20 minutes to go.#twitterblades
