Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has blamed poor defending on Sheffield United’s 4-1 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.

Wilder told BBC: “Poor goals from our point of view. The second goal and fourth are avoidable.

“We gave away poor goals to world class players. World-class players will punish you.

“There was an obvious block [for the third goal] and with the level of scrutiny these days you’d think somebody would have seen that.

“The second is a mistake by Aaron [Ramsdale]. It’s a scruffy goal. The quick succession of three and four was disappointing.

“We talked about gambling late on, I keep talking about staying in the game. It’s 2-1 and we had a bit of the ball but it was disappointing and the game quickly went away from us.

“We have to get on with it. Our fate will not be decided by Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea. It’ll be decided in the lead-up to Christmas, the ten games.

“You have to quickly clear your head. We have to work our way through it, and we’re sure we will.”
