A pair of interesting takeaways from Chelsea’s win over Sheffield United have been forthcoming online this evening.

Blues cruise

Frank Lampard’s men welcomed the Blades to Stamford Bridge earlier today, for a Premier League clash.

Chelsea headed into proceedings with their tails up, on the back of a much-improved spell of form of late.

All told, leading into Saturday’s matchup, the Pensioners boasted a 7-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, including wins in their last three.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, sat dead bottom of the English top-flight, having notched just a solitary point to this point in the campaign.

As such, a comfortable victory for the hosts was widely predicted ahead of kick-off.

And, when all was said and done in southwest London, this is precisely what was forthcoming.

Goals from all of Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Timo Werner eventually saw Chelsea put Chris Wilder’s struggling outfit to the sword by 4 goals to 1.

The Blues now sit 3rd in the Premier League table, just a point adrift of joint-table-toppers Southampton and Liverpool.
