Irish in Thursday night action…02/01/2020

Sheffield United and their Irish international quartet of John Egan, Enda Stevens, David McGoldrick and Callum Robinson travelled to face runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday evening where they went down to a two nil defeat. The first trio all started while Robinson was an unused substitute.

Eighteen year old midfielder Jason Knight retained his starting position for Derby County who defeated Barnsley by two goals to one at Pride Park in the Championship this Thursday evening. Knight gave another assured performance, initially on the left side of midfield before switching to the right during the second half.
