Sheffield United goes 5th in EPL with 2-1 win vs Bournemouth

SHEFFIELD, England (AP) Sheffield United continued to impress in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday.

John Lundstram scored the winning goal as the hosts recovered from 1-0 down to claim a victory which sees it overtake Tottenham for fifth place. Challenging for the Champions League spots in February is a major achievement for promoted Sheffield, which is two points off Chelsea in fourth, though Chelsea has a game in hand.

Callum Wilson gave Bournemouth the lead in the 13th minute on a wet pitch before veteran striker Billy Sharp leveled in first-half stoppage time. Lundstram scored Sheffield’s winner in the 84th off a square ball from Lys Mousset.
