Chelsea held to draw by relegation side, Sheffield United

Chelsea turned in a disappointing performance against Sheffield United and were deservedly held to a draw by the relegation candidates on Sunday.

Any momentum picked up from Thursday’s dramatic home win over Manchester United has likely now gone, as the London club continue to lurch from one extreme to the other this season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side raced into an early lead against the struggling Blades, as Thiago Silva finished off a superb cross from Conor Gallagher at a corner. Sheffield United fought back, though, and Jayden Bogle scored an equalizer after ghosting behind Marc Cucurella and putting a finish beyond Djordje Petrovic, who bizarrely sat down and appeared to give the forward the entire goal to aim at.

Chelsea are now ninth on the log, four points behind fellow Londoners West Ham in seventh. Although, they do have games in hand on their European rivals, against Arsenal.

As for Sheffield United, they’re rooted to the bottom on 16 points, nine behind 17th place.
