Close! Fulham break quickly and Cairney shoots from the edge of the box. It looks destined for the bottom corner, but Ramsdale, stretching to his left, makes a superb save.

Norwood floats the delivery into the box and Areola is out quickly again. This time he doesn’t hold it, but Fulham have enough players back to hack the ball clear.

GOAL! Sheffield United 0-1 Fulham (Lookman)

Brilliant from Lookman! He collects the ball about 30 yards out, beats a couple of players and drives into the box. His finish is emphatic, lashed past Ramsdale and into the roof of the net. That could be a massive goal for Fulham.

Brewster is back on. Fulham get the game going again, moving the ball well towards Sheffield United’s box. They look bereft of any ideas in the final third, though.

The game has become stretched, almost end to end. Sheffield United come forward again, and this time McBurnie sees a shot blocked. Both teams, understandably, want to win this.
