During the 1990–91 English football season, Sheffield United F.C. competed in the Football League First Division, after being promoted from the Second Division the previous season.

Season summary[edit]

Sheffield United had returned to the top flight after two successive promotions and it soon appeared that perhaps First Division survival was a bridge too far, with the club going 16 matches without a win at the start of the season, leaving the club bottom of the division on Christmas Day. However, a run of seven straight victories at the turn of the year lifted United from 20th to 12th, and, although the winning streak eventually came to a halt, it was more than enough to ensure United's survival in 13th, twelve points clear of relegation.
