Jokanović’s men lost 2-1 to their former Premier League counterparts but were on the end of some questionable refereeing decisions.
Back-to-back defeats for the Blades has resulted in the South Yorkshire side dropping to 14th in the league, six points off the play-off places.
Speaking to The Star, Egan said: “We’re not where we wanted to be.
“But it’s always going to be hard in this league. We’ve had different issues to face and we have a long season ahead of us.
“You can’t look too far ahead, we just want to try and win the next game. It’s all you can do. There’s a lot of football to be played.”
The Blades welcome a high-flying Stoke side to Bramall Lane on Saturday and will be hoping they can end their winless run with a much-needed win.
The visitors are coming off the back of a dominant 1-0 victory against West Brom before the break and will be searching for a third league win in four games.
Sheffield United loanee Ben Davies makes decision on future
The Barrow-in-Furness-born centre-back landed a shock move to Liverpool in February 2021. He arrived with Ozan Kabak on transfer deadline day with Jurgen Klopp hunting for defensive cover.
Klopp had Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all suffering from long-term injuries. And the German needed bodies in at Anfield. Still, despite the crippling injury list, Davies failed to force his way into the first-team reckoning.
Davies has in fact yet to make an appearance for Liverpool and in August he was granted a season-long loan move to Sheffield United.
But the former York City man has started to find his feet after half a season of inactivity.
Davies has made six appearances in the Championship and started to form a solid partnership with John Egan. The Blades are also finding their feet in the second tier and with a new manager to boot too in Slavisa Jokanovic.
