Chelsea were expected to get the three points against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and the Blues started the game in good light as Tammy Abraham banged a brace in the first half.

Chelsea lost the lead in the second-half as early second half goal by Callum Robinson and an own goal from Kurt Zouma late in the second-half meant the Blues had to share the spoils.

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori who got his first start and full Chelsea debut has now revealed that Chelsea players are angry with the way the game turned out.

“We’re all angry because when you’re 2-0 up at home then the game should be safe,” Tomori told the club’s official website.

“We said at half-time that we wanted to up it again but we didn’t do that. We conceded a goal really early on in the second half and it becomes very difficult when you do that. It’s disappointing but we just have to learn from it.

“This is Chelsea, we’re a big club and there’s a lot of expectations but we’re here to try to meet those expectations.”

Tomori has revealed that Chelsea are a big club and have a high standard, while also revealing that he’s ready to fight his way into the team.

He went on: “There are high standards and when we fall below those standards then of course there will be questions. It’s not always going to be perfect but in games like today, when we’re in such a strong position and then we throw it away, it’s disappointing.”

“I’m here to try and push everyone else in the squad in my position so it was nice to get my full debut. I’m very proud but it would have been even better for us to get the win.

“We [Tomori, Abraham and Mason Mount] have gone through the whole process and we’ve seen a lot of people come and go so to get to this stage is good but obviously now we want more. We want to really cement our places in the team and do big things for this club.”
