Sheffield United threw away a 3-0 lead against Aston Villa last night at Villa Park.

The Blades stormed into a three goal lead after a Billy Sharp hat-trick and the three points looked a formality for Chris Wilder’s side.

However, Villa produced a stunning comeback with three goals in the last eight minutes of the game to salvage a dramatic late draw.

Sheffield United would have gone top of the Championship with a win going into today’s fixtures which would have been a huge boost to their Premier League promotion push.

The visitors went into half-time 1-0 up at half-time after Sharp prodded home following a Gary Madine header across the box.

Wilder’s men seemingly blew away Villa in the second-half with two more typical poacher goals from Sharp and looked almost certain winners. The home fans headed for an early exit.

Dean Smith’s side pulled a goal back through Tyrone Mings on 82 minutes and made it 3-2 four minutes later after Tammy Abraham slotted the ball home after Dean Henderson parried a Tommy Elphick shot.

The hosts then grabbed a dramatic late equaliser when Andre Green got on the end of a John McGinn cross in the fifth minute of added on time.

Here is how the Blades fans reacted on Twitter to their 3-3 draw-
