    Some half-time entertainment for you before we get back to the serious business.

    Can you name a small selection of them? We've given you some clues, and three minutes in which to do so...

  4. HALF-TIME

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

  5. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Bournemouth have not had a shot on target and they should've done then. Philip Billing tries to bustle his way through on the edge of the area, it falls to Chris Mepham, who snatches at the shot from a reasonably tight angle and it's harmlessly wide.

  6. YELLOW CARD - Adam Smith

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Our first booking goes to Bournemouth's Adam Smith for collecting Jack O'Connell with a late one. The VAR team see if it should be red, but a yellow is enough.

  7. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Sheffield United get their first corner of the match but John Fleck can't beat the man at the near post, but the Blades regain possession and eventually it falls to John Lundstram, who drags his strike wide of the post from outside the penalty area.

  8. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Bournemouth still yet to test Dean Henderson in the Sheffield United goal.

  9. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    George Baldock has a chat with the referee after blocking off Ryan Fraser. Free-kick, but no card.

    The free-kick is taken by Fraser, but straight into the hands of Dean Henderson.

  10. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    A chance for Philip Billing to be an instant hero for Bournemouth on his competitive debut for the club.

    He gets the ball 35 yards out after a well-worked corner move but Billing's effort is absolutely, absolutely awful. It nearly hit the roof of the stand instead of the roof of the net.

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Josh Verrills: Not a Sheffield United fan by any means but disappointed to not see Ravel Morrison in the squad today; can’t help but feel this is his last chance in the Premier League and if he gets his head right at the club he will be the best player they have by a country mile.

  12. GREAT SAVE!

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    There's another chance, and again it's for the visitors. Callum Robinson is free about 25 yards out and shoots low and hard at the Bournemouth goal. It's heading for the bottom corner before Aaron Ramsdale, at full stretch, gets down quickly to push it wide.

  13. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Both sides play a crisp, passing game that is good on the eye, but we've not had too many chances since that opening minute save from Aaron Ramsdale to deny David McGoldrick.

    Chris Basham
  14. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Bournemouth break away on the counter but twice the final ball is a poor one, firstly from Callum Wilson and then from Adam Smith and the chance comes to nothing.

  16. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Jefferson Lerma tries his luck from 30 yards for the hosts, but drags it miles wide. A waste.

  17. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    A good start to this one. And it's down the other end we go and Ryan Fraser gets to the byeline but his cross from the right is just over the head of the leaping Callum Wilson.

    Callum Wilson
  18. GREAT SAVE!

    Bournemouth 0-0 Sheffield United

    Almost a dream, dream start for Sheffield United. The ball is played forward, David McGoldrick is too fast for the Bournemouth defence and from the edge of the box shoots at goal, but Premier League debutant Aaron Ramsdale is well positioned to push away the powerful strike.
