It was a big weekend for John Fleck as the new Scotland international netted his first Premier League goal with Sheffield United.
The Scotsman scored on what was a fine afternoon for the Blades, winning 3-0 against Burnley at Bramall Lane. Chris Wilder’s men are in sixth following this result.
Fleck had a special part to play.
Quality finish from Fleck to seal Sheffield United win
After John Lundstram had netted two from midfield, Fleck got in on the act before half time as United blew Burnley away in the opening 45 minutes.
Just a minute after Lundstram had netted his second, his midfield partner ended the game as a contest. Lys Mousset slotted Fleck in, who then placed his shot into the left hand corner.
It was a great finish as Fleck managed to get off the mark in what has been a great season for him. He’s made his Scotland debut, plus the midfielder has added nine Premiership appearances to his name.
Fleck’s been a vital part of Wilder’s midfield and after some more impressive form in recent weeks, Steve Clarke will almost definitely select him for the next internationals against Cyprus and Kazakhstan.
