McBurnie says Sheffield Utd still playing Championship style

Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie says the club are playing the same way they did in the Championship.

The style is seemingly working after Monday's win over Arsenal at Bramall Lane took the Blades to ninth on the Premier League table.

Speaking after the game, McBurnie said: "I'm made up with the effort we put in. We knew they'd be vulnerable at set-pieces. We've said about matching performances to pick up points and we've done that.

"We knew it would be difficult for us this season. We're trying to play the way we did in the Championship and understand we're playing against a higher level opposition. We've married up three points with a good performance."
