McBurnley - Blades hit Clarets for 5; Rotherham Preview
Hard to keep your feet on the ground after that one, so Ben and Andrew barely even try: United hammer Burnley 5-2 in a thrilling game at the Lane, with Oli McBurnie continuing his insanely good season as the Blades batter the league leaders.

Had Our Phil - Stoke Recap, Blackpool Preview
Ben and Andrew are not too downbeat about the defeat to Stoke as United's mishmash team come up short - Rhian Brewster's first of the season providing a bright spot, but old favourite Phil Jagielka sticks in the boot (or head).
