    There's only one place to finish tonight.

    A first career hat-trick for 17-year-old Ryan Sessegnon helped Fulham claim an incredible 5-4 win at Sheffield United.

    "We think there's a possibility of another operation," says Bruce. "It's devastating for us all. It's a big, huge blow."

    A real dampener after a fine win.

  14. FULL-TIME

    Sheffield United 4-5 Fulham

    An extraordinary game at Bramall Lane ends with the visitors claiming all three points and two players scoring a hat-trick.

    Leon Clarke got the first of his treble to give the hosts an early lead before Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Sessegnon goals turned it around for the visitors.

    Clarke's second levelled it up only for Sessegnon to get his second to make it 3-2 to Fulham at half-time.

    Ojo's second gave them breathing room before Sessegnon scored his first career hat-trick to seemingly put the game out of reach.

    However, late goals from Samir Carruthers and a third for Clarke set up a tense finish.
