Blades boss Chris Wilder believed his team pulled off "a huge result" despite not being at their best against West Ham.

Sheffield United, who rose to fifth place in the Premier League following the 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane were prevented from playing to their maximum capacity by a well-drilled West Ham side.

Yet they managed to steal all three points courtesy of Oli McBurnie's 53rd minute goal, a strike that ultimately proved sufficient to separate the two teams after Robert Snodgrass' injury time effort was ruled out for handball following a VAR review.

"I don't take any pleasure or joy from what's happened tonight," Wilder told SUTV when asked to comment on the decision. "I was a bit disappointed by our game management and to have lost two big points would've been really disappointing.

"But whatever's happened to David [Moyes] has happened to me, to Robert Snodgrass, Declan Rice and Mark Noble - who I know well - and has happened to our players.

"You'll never know until the end of the season if it all evens itself out - but I'm not sure it will."
