Chelsea defeated Sheffield United 4-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but for Blues left-back Ben Chilwell, he is unhappy that the club didn’t keep a clean sheet in the process.

Chelsea’s defence had picked up recently, and the Blues were on a run of five games without conceding a goal in all competitions.

That run ended in the 9th minute against Sheffield United, as David McGoldrick beat Edouard Mendy for the first time in six games and ended Chelsea’s run of clean sheets, a situation that last happened in 2010.

Chilwell has admitted that he was unhappy the team didn’t keep a clean sheet against the Blades.

“It would have been nice to get another clean sheet,” said Chilwell, “but the way we reacted after the first goal showed the character in the team.

“Going 1-0 down against Sheffield United can be difficult, they’re very resilient, and we knew it was going to be a challenge. So to get four goals after conceding shows great character.”
