Wilder was applauded by the Sheffield United supporters having led the club from League One to the Premier League during his time in charge.

Sander Berge, Billy Sharp, Jack Robinson and Morgan Gibbs-White all got on the scoresheet to secure a much needed Championship win for the Blades, with substitute Folarin Balogun getting a consolation for Boro.

Berge tapped into an empty net after Sharp sent in a cross which came off Marc Bola and fell into his path in the 23rd minute.

It was 2-0 just two minutes later after Oliver Norwood won the ball and found Gibbs-White, who passed to Sharp and the veteran striker produced a clinical finish to keep impressing fans with his goalscoring record at the age of 36.

Robinson got the Blades a third goal on the 59th minute after Norwood’s corner was headed back by Egan.

Balogun got one back for Boro three minutes later after getting the onto Wes Foderingham’s error, the keeper slipping after receiving a back-pass.

Gibbs-White made it 4-1 in the 79th minute with a neat back-heeled finish after receiving the ball first-time ball into the area from Ben Osborn.

One moment throughout the game however got people laughing, with Middlesbrough fans in the away end abusing Oli McBurnie. Watch what happened below…

What the managers said…

Sheffield United’s Paul Heckingbottom: “Too many reasons to go through why it was good. Lots of work goes into performances and it was one of those where it comes off for you and things go your way. We’ve had some good results and tried to improve things and push things on and enjoy what you watch. The application and energy and willingness you have to praise again.

“We all want to get as high as we can. As the season progresses, results might become more significant and we have beaten teams above us. It’s about being positive and winning the matches. The players enjoy playing that way and I enjoy setting the team up that way. They [Sharp and Gibbs-White] were fantastic, really good with the ball and without the ball, but they are only able to do that if the boys around them perform their roles and the lads did it.”

Middlesbrough’s Chris Wilder: “We didn’t deserve anything from the game. Miles better than us in every department and I must say I didn’t see that coming. You get a feel for what your team is about and where they are at but I have to say that I never saw that coming. Sharp and Gibbs-White destroyed our three. Their two forwards had too much movement and too much energy and their midfielders won that department.

“They stepped on the gas and from a physical point of view, we got out-muscled and out-run. I didn’t think we were brave enough on the ball. Nowhere near what I expect, and we have produced, and I hope it’s a one-off. I take no positives out of tonight. We didn’t have one player who came out of that with a positive. We didn’t have any foot-hold in the game. We have to take it on the chin.”
