Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United was a shocking one as the Blues couldn’t come to terms with the game and were disgraced at Bramall Lane on Saturday evening.

Sheffield United players made a meal of Chelsea players, with David McGoldrick bagging a brace either side of a header from strike partner Oliver McBurnie, and the duo caused Chelsea’s centre-backs problems all match.

Andreas Christensen was subbed off at half-time, and the Dane got it tough against the Sheffield United forwards.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted Christensen is too lightweight, as the Blades players got the better of him.

Giving an example, Wright spoke of how McBurnie sent Christensen crashing to the floor after the ball had gone.

Wright said on Match of the Day: “Well the thing about it is, I think that’s what’s happened to him a couple of times, Christensen. He’s just absolutely bowled him over.

“I think that he got a little bit roughed up today. You see them both [Sheffield United’s strikers] in the middle, Reece James gets dragged in, but look at the time [McBurnie] has in there. Frank will be very disappointed with that.

“That’s the way it was today. They lacked the same intensity that Sheffield United had and Sheffield just ran away with it.

“Toni Rudiger came on and wasn’t quite with the pace of the game, unfortunately couldn’t sort his feet out [for the third goal].”
