Substitute Billy Sharp grabbed a late equalizer at the penalty spot to grab a point for Sheffield United against Fulham at Bramall Lane

Both teams are at least irrelevant after Sunday’s clash, having each lost their first four games of the campaign

The Blades, a revelation last season with ninth place after being promoted back to the top flight, dominated the first half but were forced to pay for not taking their chance when Ademola Lookman took the put Fulham in front after 77 minutes

The goal came 20 minutes after Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty for the visitors, and it would be a kick to the other end, converted with a bit of aplomb by Sharp five minutes from time, which earned the hosts a draw

Fulham looked confident from the start, kicking the ball with some authority before winning a corner from which Aaron Ramsdale was forced to make a nice save to fend off Tom Cairney’s shot from outside the penalty area

The tide quickly turned, however, and Fulham’s defensive weaknesses, which have been so obvious this season, have been revealed again by the Blades

Alphonse Areola flipped over to a long-range effort from John Lundstram and Oli McBurnie was narrowly heading away from the resulting turn

Chris Basham then put a wide chance before a good linkage play on the right between Lundstram and David McGoldrick created a shooting opportunity for Enda Stevens, but Areola made another good save

The Blades now seemed confident in the face of a very fragile Fulham defense, but the visitors still had plenty of offensive effort on the other end of the pitch, especially through the Wasp Lookman, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek stung them. Ramsdale palms

Areola made a nice point-blank save to prevent a McBurnie header around the half hour mark as the Blades started to pepper Fulham’s goal again

Chris Wilder’s side had the ball in the net after 36 minutes when Cottagers defender Tosin Adarabioyo passed the ball past his own goalkeeper, but Sander Berge was flagged for offside

Mitrovic hit a low shot on a free kick Ramsdale did well to hold just before half-time

On the other side of the break, the Fulham striker pushed aside a golden opportunity to charge the hosts for their catalog of missed opportunities

Jack Robinson handled the ball into a corner, but Mitrovic blew the penalty over the goal and into the empty grandstand, the ball cutting the crossbar on its way

Fulham boss Scott Parker turned away in disgust It was a huge missed opportunity for his team and an equally big abandonment for the Blades

The game got disjointed for a while afterward and Wilder’s side had lost their way a bit, so club record signing Rhian Brewster was introduced from the bench with 64 minutes on the clock.

However, that didn’t do much to immediately alter the pattern of play and Mitrovic’s blush was spared by an individual glow from Lookman, which opened the scoring for Fulham

The 22-year-old picked up the ball in his own half and ran to the Blades defense He passed Berge and, after a slight chance to ricochet around Basham, Lookman crashed into Ramsdale from inside of the penalty area

Mitrovic should have gone 2-0 but sent his effort straight to Ramsdale from up close, and the Serbian’s afternoon got even worse in the 85th minute when he gave a penalty kick

Mitrovic then fought off two more sharp chances in injury time, heading wide on each occasion, securing a stalemate that left both sides chasing their first Premier League win this season
