Sheffield United battled back from two goals down to snatch a point at Stamford Bridge. The Blues were 2-0 up by half-time after striker Tammy Abraham struck twice, but Kurt Zouma’s late own goal ensured a draw following Callum Robinson’s strike in the first minute of the second half.
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder insists they are not day trippers getting autographs and collecting shirts after his team’s draw against Chelsea.
“Three years ago we were bottom of League One and now we have come away from Chelsea with a result,” said Wilder. “We are not day trippers getting autographs and collecting shirts.”
Wilder added: “It’s a great result for us. We gave away really poor goals. You can’t give teams like Chelsea a two-goal start and think everything is OK. Dean Henderson should have done better for the first goal but he’s made a great save to keep us in it.
“I am biased but I believe we deserve something from today.
“It’s been a great start, we can enjoy a night out tonight. We are here to compete.
“I believe in the players more than they do sometimes.
“We’ve gone toe-to-toe with a really good side.”
