Sheffield United making full use of Everton win, insists boss Paul Heckingbottom UK News

United, who traveled to Merseyside following successive defeats and 11 in their last 13 games, looked more like themselves as they dominated the hosts chasing Europe for much of the game.

Teenager Daniel Jebbison marked his Premier League debut with the winning goal, and could have had a second without a smart save from Jordan Pickford.

And Heckingbottom said: “I’m delighted. I thought we were good from start to finish and well worth the three points. We had a good chance, not a lot of chances, and we defended really well.

“We had other good performances this season which were defeated with quality, but today we were very good and we deserved it. It was probably our best defensive display I’ve seen in a long time.

“All season they have had points worth performances, we earned it today and it’s a good reward because it’s difficult when you play well and you don’t get points. .

Commenting on Jebbison, who justified the decision to play him ahead of United’s record signing Rhian Brewster, Heckingbottom added: “This is where he scored his goals, between the posts in the six-yard box, it is therefore his honor.

“He deserved it, he worked hard and did his job without the ball, which was important too. We did not transport anyone this evening.
