After going down 1-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road in their season opener, Sheffield United proceeded to go on a nine-match unbeaten run to lay down an early marker in their promotion bid.
The season highlight for the Blades in the Championship came in November, with Vincent Kompany's all-conquering Burnley side swept aside 5-2 at Bramall Lane in perhaps United's finest performance of the campaign.
The quest for promotion ended up pretty straightforward in the end for the Blades, confirming their Premier League place with three games to spare following a comfortable 2-0 victory at home to West Brom and ending up 11 points clear of third-placed Luton Town in the table.
After securing promotion to the top flight after finishing second behind Burnley in the Championship last term, Sheffield United have struggled in the Premier League after they were reacquainted with the best sides in the country.
The Blades spent just two seasons in the Championship following their relegation from the Premier League in 2020-21, a campaign which saw them finish rock bottom on just 23 points, with this last experience in the the top tier of English football certainly a bruising one.
The Premier League has proven to be a huge step up in class for a team made up of a number of the personnel who were relegated just two years ago, with the Blades up against it to survive this season.
