Not many would have expected Chelsea to lose against Sheffield United, but the Blues didn’t just lose, they lost comprehensively.

Chelsea were beaten 3-0 at the Bramall Lane, and it wasn’t an unfair result as Chris Wilder’s side beat Chelsea in every department and were deserved winners.

Chris Wilder has now revealed how he was able to beat Chelsea tactically.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder said: “To turn Tottenham, Wolves and Chelsea over three games on the spin, you have to be at your maximum.

“Today we were outstanding in both penalty areas. You know Chelsea can pull some magic out of the bag so you always need another goal.

“It was yet again a fabulous performance from the team. We wanted to make it difficult. Our structure out of possession was really good and then you have to be clinical with your opportunities. The play around the box to create the goals was great and the finishes were fantastic.”
