PREMIER LEAGUE football returns to Bramall Lane after a 12-year absence as Sheffield United host Crystal Palace on the second weekend of the new season.
The Blades earned promotion to the top flight with a magical 2nd-placed finish in the Championship last term.
And they marked their return to the big time with a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth last weekend, Billy Sharp notching an 88th-minute equaliser to send the travelling support into raptures.
Meanwhile, Palace’s start to the campaign was not quite as enthralling as they were held to a goalless affair by ten-man Everton at Selhurst Park.
