That's all for this evening, thank you and goodbye!
Everton move up into 11th place after that win, going ahead of Southampton on goal difference. As for the Blades, their European dream looks to be over as they sit four points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in sixth and two points behind Wolves in seventh who play later this evening. Everton will look to finish the season on a high against already relegated AFC Bournemouth, whilst Sheffield United finish the season off on the south coast away at Southampton to round off a magnificent debut season.
A poor game overall decided by one piece of real quality from Everton as they held on to take all three points thanks to a brilliant free-kick delivery and even better headed finish from their star Brazillian, Richarlison. Chris Wilder will feel let down by his side today as the home side's performance put up no real challenge for Ancelotti's Toffees.
90' + 3' Digne is down after the ball hit him in the face from Baldock's cross.
90' + 2' Everton are defending with their lives out there on the pitch. They look desperate to keep hold of their clean sheet.
90' There will be four added minutes to play.
Yellow Card

89' Sidibe has moved into a more advanced wide position ahead of Coleman now as Everton look to see this game out.
S. Coleman

87' Branthwaite defends well again, this time against Sharp, as he wins the ball fairly and distributes the ball calmly out to Sigurdsson.
85' Just five minutes to go plus added time for Sheffield United to find an equaliser and possibly a winner if they're to put pressure on Wolves to get a result later this evening.

T. Walcott
84' SUBSTITUTION: Walcott OFF Gordon ON

Yellow Card

78' Fleck drills a ball into Sharp's feet but the captain can't sort his feet out and the ball runs away from him into the arms of Pickford.
76' Fleck has made a real impact on the game since coming on, constantly pressing and offering himself in good positions to create chances for his side.
74' The Blades have just over 15 minutes to get something from this game if they're to keep their European dreams alive.
72' Digne does well to head the ball out for a corner as Baldock and Sharp were lurking at the back post.
72' Over the last two seasons, only Neymar (28) has scored more goals in the top five European leagues among Brazilians than Richarlison (26).

J. Fleck
O. McBurnie
B. Sharp

53' Everton concede a throw after some good defending from Sidibe.
51' Both teams have shown more desire and energy in the last five minutes than in the whole of the first half.
48' WHAT A BLOCK! McGoldrick drills a shot at goal but Branthwaite does brilliantly well to get his leg in the way and block the shot.

G. Sigurðsson
46' What a free-kick from Sigurdsson who has had a relatively quiet game up until now. He whipped the ball right onto Richarlison's head who just had to direct it goal bound.
46' We're underway for the second half.
As it stands, Sheffield United will remain eighth and fail to put pressure on Wolves ahead of the midlands fixture against Crystal Palace later as the race for European football continues. Ancelotti could turn to his youth players to make a difference with the Toffees' having nothing to play for.
A poor first half overall from both sides with the only chance of the game falling to Calvert-Lewin who somehow managed to head the ball off the woodwork from six yards out. Both managers will be hoping to see an improvement in their respective team's performance in the second half.

The teams are taking to the pitch. Kick off is moments away.
14 - Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has never lost a Premier League game against a newly promoted side in 14 previous such matches (W10 D4) – this is the most any manager has faced promoted clubs without tasting defeat in the competition.
Carlo Ancelotti makes four changes to the side that drew with Aston Villa. Holgate misses out through injury, with Coleman, Iwobi and Bernard dropping to the bench. Walcott starts after scoring the equaliser against the Villans, joined by Branthwaite, Sidibe and Sigurdsson coming into the starting line-up.
Chris Wilder retains the starting eleven that played at Leicester last week despite giving a scathing review of their performance in his post-match interview. 
SUBS: Maarten Steklenburg, Leighton Baines, Alex Iwobi, Bernard, Seamus Coleman, Joao Virginia, Ben Baningime, Anthony Gordon, Ellis Simms.
EFC XI (4-4-2): Jordan Pickford; Lucas Digne, Michael Keane, Jarrad Branthwaite, Djibril Sidibe; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Theo Walcott; Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
SUBS: John Fleck, John Lundstram, Billy Sharp, Phil Jagielka, Kieron Freeman, Jack Robinson, Leon Clarke, Simon Moore, Richairo Zivkovic.
SHUFC XI (5-3-2): Dean Henderson; Chris Basham, John Egan, Jack O’Connell, George Baldock, Enda Stevens; Sander Berge, Oliver Norwood, Ben Osborn; David McGoldrick, Oliver McBurnie.
The Blades come into the game fighting to keep their European dream alive sitting in 8th, just two points shy of Wolves in 7th. Meanwhile, the Toffees' season is all but over with the highest they can finish being 10th, along with being safe from the struggling pack behind near the relegation zone. 
Welcome to coverage of Sheffield United v Everton. Kick off is 30 minutes away.
