In a tight first half, with Neal Maupay coming close on two occasions, Brighton had the better chances. However, just before half-time, the game was turned on its head when John Lundstram was given a red card for a strong challenge on Joel Veltman, leaving the fate of the Blades on the edge of a knife.

On Sunday afternoon, Sheffield United almost won their first Premier League season victory but conceded late on to draw 1-1 on the south coast with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Blades were camped in their own half for significant portions of the second 45 minutes, but they stunned the Amex Stadium by executing a perfect counter-attack, allowing debutant Jayden Bogle to fire home and bring the men of Chris Wilder ahead on 63 minutes.

When Danny Welbeck chested down and rifled a ball into the net from inside the six-yard box, the Seagulls huffed and puffed to draw level and they got their break with three minutes left on the clock. Neither team was able to find a winner and they split the points.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
