SHEFFIELD UTD 1-2 SWANSEA
Swansa have regained that winning mentality on the opening day as a new name, Yan Dhanda, barely 30 seconds on the pitch, hands Graham Potter the perfect start.
Full-back George Baldock gave the Blades the opener on his 50th Championship appearance for Chris Wilder's side, but Oliver McBurnie levelled.
Wilder will wonder how his side have lost.
90+3: Roberts does well to make a last-ditch challenge on Woodburn. Last chance saloon for Sheffield United as Grimes heads clear.
90+1: Mark Duffy, who replaced Basham immediately after Swansea's second, works the ball wide to Baldock, but the cross comes off Sharp and behind for a goal-kick.
WATCH: DHANDA FIRES SWANS AHEAD
90: The fourth official has indicated a minimum of four added minutes.
WATCH: McBURNIE LEVELS
88: SAVE! That's an outstanding save from Nordfeldt as Roberts gets his feet all wrong, and nearly scores an own goal. The corner comes to nothing.
GOAL! SHEFFIELD UTD 1-2 SWANSEA (Dhanda, 86)
What an introduction. Swansea again make hay down the left with Montero, and his cross finds McKay at the far post.
He cuts inside and is surely taken out, but the referee plays a good advantage as Dhanda blasts home via a deflection.
Swansea have turned this one around!
SHEFFIELD UTD 1-1 SWANSEA
85: SUB! Yan Dhanda, another summer acquisition on a free from Liverpool comes on in place of Fulton.
82: OFF THE BAR! That's a let-off for Sheffield United as McKay produces a rasping volley that thuds the crossbar on the full!
Montero has been outstanding since coming on, clearly hoping to impress Antonio Valencia, his cross finds the debutant and he tees himself up before beating Henderson all ends up, but not the woodwork.
79: SUB! Second sub of the evening for Sheffield United and it's a very attack-minded change as Billy Sharp replaces the midfielder Lundstram.
77: CHANCE! It's a very open game now as Swansea look to complete the turnaround. Montero does so well to get beyond Baldock and his ball is onto the head of McBurnie.
It's a very decent effort as the cross is way behind him, but he directs the header a yard wide of the far post.
WATCH: BALDOCK GIVES BLADES LEAD
72: SUB! Chris Wilder was planning a change before that goal, and he sticks to it as Ben Woodburn replaces McGoldrick.
GOAL! SHEFFIELD UTD 1-1 SWANSEA (McBurnie, 71)
Out of nowhere, Swansea are level, and it's cruel on Henderson.
He makes another brilliant save to his left after a Sheffield United defender deflected the ball goalwards following good link-up play between McBurnie and Barrie McKay, and it is McBurnie who is first to react to the loose ball to slam home from a tight angle.
We're back to all square. United's supremacy lasted for under nine minutes.
SHEFFIELD UTD 1-0 SWANSEA
68: WHAT A SAVE! Dean Henderson makes a brilliant save to deny Jay Fulton from Connor Roberts' cross. He got his body in a bad position but he did ever so well to pedal backwards and tip the header over!
63: SUB! Graham Potter wastes no time in making a change as Jefferson Montero replaces Asoro. They've won just one league game ever here, and they have to dig deep here now.
GOAL! SHEFFIELD UTD 1-0 SWANSEA (Baldock, 62)
This is the moment those Sheffield United fans have been waiting for. It's patient and adventurous as the ball is worked down the left to Lundstram and it's a brilliant find as George Baldock opens up his body and picks his spot, right-footed low down to Kristoffer Nordfeldt's right.
SHEFFIELD UTD 0-0 SWANSEA
60: WIDE! A game has broken out at Bramall Lane, as Tom Carroll cuts in from the right and bends a venomous shot with his left foot that flies inches wide of the target.
59: WHAT A MISS! Sheffield United have just had the game's best chance and it's all from wayward passing from Swansea.
Lundstram intercepts a lazy throw-in and plays a one-two with McGoldrick, but he skews wide with his right foot. He really should've done a lot better.
58: CHANCE! It's a first sight of goal for McGoldrick, who has runners either side of him, but he opts to shoot right-footed, and his effort was always bending wide. He has to find the target from there!
55: One or two signs from Swansea here as O'Connell is forced to hack clear after tidy foot-work from McBurnie. Basham then makes a really important block before O'Connell clears Celina's shot.
53: BLOCK! What an opportunity for Swansea and they should make much more of this.
Barrie MacKay is almost in on goal but his intention is to feed his team-mate Asoro, but the Sheffield United defenders are able to recover and block the shot!
52: Manchester United's Antonio Valencia is in the Bramall Lane crowd. Even more bizarre is that it's his 33rd birthday today...
It was Valencia who advised Jefferson Montero to join Swansea, and he is on the bench this evening, so that might go some way to explaining it.
49: It's no surprise that one or two fans are drifting off in the crowd. It's not been the type of game to get those in attendance off their feet. Clarke fouls Olsson in the air. Celina is getting on the ball but there's just nothing going on.
48: Fleck does well to keep Lundstram's deep ball in play, and Evans then wins a throw-in. Intent has returned to the home side in the sunny Steel City and it's a similar pattern to the opening few minutes of the first period.
WE'RE BACK UNDERWAY!
46: Swansea get us back up and running in this second half. Barrie McKay falls at the final hurdle after good work down the left but O'Connell does well to put him off.
BTTS is now available at 7/2, while a 1-0 Swansea victory can be backed at 15/2 and David McGoldrick to open the scoring is also priced at 15/2...

It's been a pretty uneventful first-half, full of endeavour and defensive solidity but without the creative spark expected. Stalemate at the break.
45: HANDBALL! Swansea's first notable attack sees the ball hooked in from the left and O'Connell gets the flight of the delivery from Olsson all wrong but Asoro handles before McBurnie goes down inside the box.
The whistle had already blown so the goal-mouth melee results in a free-kick for the home side.
42: OVER! McGoldrick picks up the ball after a good challenge from Lundstram, and his shot from distance takes a deflection behind for a corner.
Evans' delivery is headed over from an acute angle by O'Connell. There were a few defenders in front of him, so he was a little unsighted there.
39: NO PENALTY! The referee and assistant look at each other and say no. Chris Basham goes to ground and it's either a penalty or a dive.
There's no contact as Fernandez slides across and doesn't connect. It's a goal-kick, but Basham should really pick up a yellow card. The Swansea players are furious and rightly so.
37: Asoro is the latest player to hold his face as O'Connell goes through to win the ball. The game has just lost any of the flow it had before the recent spate of collisions.
34: Federico Fernandez is rolling around after a high boot by Stevens. It comes just moments after good work down the left by Fleck as Lee Evans' shot from Clarke's lay-off is well blocked by Fernandez.
The Sheffield United fans aren't best pleased with the Argentine's theatrics.
33: Chris Wilder will want his side to be a bit more dynamic with their two wing-backs, but a lot of their play has come from crosses out wide, which Van der Hoorn has largely dealt with.
Enda Stevens is just on the deck holding his face after being caught by Asoro but he's OK.
30: John Lundstram makes a yard of space for himself down the right but Van der Hoorn is there to ensure nothing comes of the cross.
Swansea have lost so many players this summer that it's understandable it's taking at least the opening 30 minutes of their season to gel.
25: Celina looks a silky player as you might expect coming from Manchester City. The Kosovan player drills the ball out left to Olsson.
The Swede plays a give-and-go with Carroll but he plays the ball out for a goal-kick. Swansea have offered very little as an attacking threat.
23: Fleck's cross is met by Van der Hoorn twice. Swansea on the counter-attack, great play from McKay and Asoro is fed by Celina down the right, but his cross is dealt with. Halfway through the first half. United are edging possession, 60-40, so far.
20: Good play down the right by the hosts, as Roberts is forced to hook the ball behind. The ensuing corner is straight from the training ground but Basham's cross is just too high for Jack O'Connell. That's better from the Blades.
17: Don Goodman says: "Neither team have been able to test the goalkeeper so far. It's been a very cagey start.
"Swansea started on the back-foot but it's all just petered out a little. It's up to Sheffield United to inject some tempo, as this suits Swansea."
16: Oliver McBurnie hasn't seen a great deal of the ball so far and his lay-off is gobbled up by Evans in midfield. Can the home side up the ante?
13: More frustration from the home supporters as McGoldrick appears to win the ball from Mike van der Hoorn, but the referee blows for a foul. Sheffield United were in a good position had it been allowed to go.
11: Ben Woodburn is watching on from the bench this evening as McGoldrick and captain Leon Clarke were handed the nod from the start by Chris Wilder. The pair very nearly link up for the first time but Fernandez just gets his toe to the ball.
9: Don Goodman is the co-commentator this evening, and he says: "Sheffield United have just lost their composure the last few minutes."
Graham Potter will be happy with the manner in which his side has started and just subdued the home crowd early on.
Jack O'Connell goes down after knocking the ball past Connor Roberts, but there's no foul there.
7: Another set piece for Swansea as Enda Stevens hauls down Joel Asoro. Martin Olsson stands over it, and this time his shot is straight down the throat of Henderson, who gathers at the second attempt.
5: Swansea earn a cheap free-kick as Lundstram in tracking back fouls Tom Carroll. Celina now stands over this but Dean Henderson plucks the delivery from the sky.
2: David McGoldrick's first touch in a Blades shirt is very nearly perfect as he flicks the ball inside Roberts but the danger is snuffed out.
Positive start from the hosts as they see plenty of early possession before Federico Fernandez hacks the ball clear.
1: It's Sheffield United, in their traditional red and white striped shirts and black shorts, who get us underway after a pre-match huddle. We're all set for a fascinating encounter!
OUT COME THE TEAMS!
We're at a sunny Bramall Lane as Swansea are back in the second tier for the first time in seven seasons. They are in orange this evening.
It's a day one contest of contrasts, as Swansea rose to the top playing silky football, but they've lost their identity in getting relegated. The rebuild starts in Yorkshire.
