Chelsea succumbed to a 2-2 draw against Sheffield United on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues led 2-0 at halftime thanks to a brace from Tammy Abraham but Callum Robinson pulled one back shortly for the visitors after the break before Kurt Zouma scored an own goal in the dying minutes of the game.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley revealed his team-mates were all disappointed in their own performances after the draw against Sheffield United on Saturday.

“There’s loads of talent in there in the changing room,” Barkley said.

“The players we’ve got are unbelievable but today we weren’t at the level we should be at. We didn’t perform well.

“You’ve just got to try and make things happen and we didn’t create enough chances, didn’t hit the target as much as we should have.

“But we all know in there, we all spoke in the changing room after the game and we all held our hands up, we all didn’t perform to the levels we know we can.

“Tammy scored two goals but he can’t win the game on his own.”

Chelsea have now conceded nine goals in just four Premier League games and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard blames the team and not just the defence.

“It’s not defence it’s conceding as a team,” said Lampard, after the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United.

“Lack of concentration and mistakes but you defend as a team as much as you attack as a team.

“We conceded because we switched off in a game we should be comfortably seeing out at 2-0 up. I was clear at half-time with the players, this could be 3-0 and that’s nice or it has the potential to 2-2.”
