As their confidence was already knocked, there was yet another amazing opportunity for the side as Pogba created the perfect through ball to Martial in the 33rd minute. Though it was not a clean finish on the goal, martial was able to finish the job securing the 2-1 lead over Sheffield before half time.

Another Goal For McGoldrick
However, as the game continued, there was yet another chance for Sheffield to join the goal, McGoldrick saw this opportunity and took advantage of the corner taken by Flek to the back post. Despite Lindelöf challenging the Sheffield player, he was still able to place the ball into the back of the net with ease, allowing Sheffield to celebrate with a 2-3 score. Would Sheffield be able to make it a draw with a 3-3 win or would this be the score that they will be ending the game with making for a disappointing loss for Sheffield keeping them at the bottom of the table?
Another Loss For Sheffield
As the final whistle blew, the chances for Sheffield to equalize disappeared meaning that they would maintain their position at the bottom of the league table. Having lost all five of their last five games, there are many wondering whether or not this will be enough to see the club out of the relegation zone before the end of the season in May. Though there is time for them to improve, only time will tell as to whether or not we will be seeing this team move up the league table before it is too late.
With this in mind, several games are coming up in the 2020/21 season that is going to challenge, not only those at the top of the league table but also those at the bottom. Where do you think that your favourite team will end up at the end of the league?
