Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side were in the relegation zone and seemingly in trouble. They’ve taken 35 points from 21 matches so now sit comfortably in 12th.
Since the restart, they’ve racked up four wins, three draws and have lost only once, a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal. This includes last Sunday’s 2-0 win against south coast rivals Bournemouth.
Danny Ings scored and then missed a penalty in that one before Ché Adams scored in the 98th minute to secure the win. The Saints have picked up 31 points away from home this season, their best return in a top-flight campaign.
Sheffield United meanwhile have been the most impressive team of this season for sure. However, they currently sit in eighth place on 54 points.
When football returned, they had a very good chance of qualifying for continental competition for the very first time but those ambitions may have ended on Monday night. The Blades were beaten 1-0 by Everton at Bramall Lane in a game that is only notable for its uneventfulness.
They have taken 11 points from nine games with their wins all coming at home against Tottenham, Wolves and Chelsea.
