Despite conceding for the first time in 459 minutes, Chelsea eased to a comprehensive win over Sheffield United.
Chelsea kept pace at the top of the Premier League as they came from behind to beat Sheffield United 4-1 at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues had kept clean sheets in each of their last five matches, but saw their goal breached in the ninth minute by David McGoldrick.
However, Tammy Abraham equalised and Ben Chilwell gave Chelsea a lead they would not relinquish as their defensive solidity returned thereafter.
The first goal for Chelsea by Thiago Silva ensured victory before Timo Werner made the margin of triumph even more comfortable.
The victory ensures that the men of Frank Lampard are a point behind Southampton’s leaders and second-placed Liverpool, who have a game in hand. With one point from eight games, the winless Blades are bottom.
