Billy Sharp claims Sheffield United can secure European qualification

Sheffield United skipper Billy Sharp claimed his side can secure European qualification next season, after the Blades won 2-1 against Bournemouth to move within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea, according to Talksport.

The Cherries began well at Bramall Lane by scoring the first goal through Wilson, but Sharp and substitute John Lundstram struck one each to make it a comfortable victory for their team.

Chris Wilder’s side have now registered two consecutive victories, against Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, in the Premier League following their positive results against Arsenal and Manchester City.

And this latest victory almost guarantees one more Premier League season for the South Yorkshire club, but sharp believes that they can even qualify for Europe by continuing their good performances.

He told Talksport:

“I’m not going to lie, that’s us safe now. So that’s one achievement ticked off.

“We need to finish as high as we can now. Who knows what could happen. People might not think we can do it [get into Europe], but the boys believe we are capable of it.

“We’re just going to keep winning games and give ourselves the best possible chance.”

The 34-year-old striker also rejected transfer claims that linked him with a move out of Bramall Lane in January.

He has made 17 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring two goals and creating two assists.
