Watch: Enda Stevens Scores An Absolute Thunderbastard Against Brighton

Watch: Enda Stevens Scores An Absolute Thunderbastard Against Brighton

This lad is in some form at the minute. Enda Stevens has certainly had no trouble adjusting to life in the Premier League.

Having played a key part in Sheffield United's promotion from the Championship last season, we were hoping he could continue to thrive in the English top flight.

It's fair to say he has surpassed everyone's expectations. Stevens had played every single minute in the league heading into today's clash against Brighton, while the club themselves have launched an unlikely run at the Champions League places.

Those hopes took a bit of a blow today, with Chris Wilder's side only managing a 1-1 draw at home to The Seagulls.

The Ireland left back would score their only goal of the game, and it was some strike. He took the ball down just inside the penalty area after it fell to him from a corner, unleashing an incredible shot into the top corner. Mat Ryan had no chance.

Unfortunately, Stevens was withdrawn from the game at halftime. It is not known why he was taken off, but Ireland fans will be hoping it is nothing serious ahead of the massive Euro 2020 play-off against Slovakia next month.

He wasn't the only Irishman to find the back of the net today. Shane Long, Callum Robinson, Alan Browne, and Scott Hogan also got their names on the scoresheet, contributing to what would have been a very pleasing afternoon for Mick McCarthy.

Hogan scored this cracking volley to secure a late point for Birmingham City, continuing his strong start to life at his new club.
