Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell has impressed since joining the club from Leicester City for a £50m fee during the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old added to his goals yet again as he scored the all important second goal to put Chelsea in front, having gone 1-0 down against Sheffield United.

A fine ball from Hakim Ziyech found the overlapping left-back and he managed to tuck the ball into the net.

Chilwell has admitted that he knew little about the goal, and didn’t even know when the ball went into the net.

“Although I didn’t know much about it, I’ll take it and it’s another goal so I’m happy!” he laughed while describing his goal.

“I have been told to get in at the back post, we’ve worked on that a lot with Hakim cutting in and crossing it to the back post, and me or Timo being there.

“I didn’t really have my bearings to be honest, it was a bit of everything, the post, the goalkeeper. I thought I would just get in the back post and hopefully it would hit me and go across goal or go in.

“I was lucky it went in the goal. I didn’t know it had gone in until I saw Tammy looking at me smiling.”
