Playing at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea disappointed their fans once again. This time, Frank Lampard’s men failed to secure a two-goal lead against the modest and newly-promoted side Sheffield United, who showed braveness to seek the equalizer on 90 minutes. Rising talent Tammy Abraham scored both goals for the Blues in the first half, whereas Robinson, and Zouma – OG – scored for Sheffield.
The Blues had a decent start in front of their fans at Stamford Bridge. They kicked-off the match seeking early-goals, and it came in on 19 minutes. With a huge contribution from Sheffield’s keeper, Mr. Henderson. Following a relatively simple save on Christian Pulisic’s finish, the goalkeeper dropped the ball in the area and into the path of Abraham, who took advantage and tapped into the bottom of the net. 1-0 Chelsea.
On 42 minutes, Abraham scored once more. The English youth this time counted on the help from a Sheffield defender, who “assisted” him in a poor back-pass with his head, as Abraham beat goalkeeper Henderson for the second time in London. 2-0 Chelsea.
Sheffield did not give up and showed braveness and heart to fight for the equalizer in the second half. In the first minute into the second half, Stevens made a great play from the left and crossed it to Robinson, who completed to the back of the net. 2-1.
The same Robinson was the provider of a very unfortunate move from Chelsea’s defender, Kurt Zouma. On 90 minutes, Robinson crossed into the box, and in a desperate attempt to clear the ball, Zouma ended up beating his goalkeeper, Kepa and equalized the game for Sheffield. 2-2.
With the 2-2 draw at home on Saturday, Chelsea has five points and are just ninth in the Premier League. With the same points, Sheffield United are eighth in the Premier League table.
