Chelsea vs Sheffield United Player analysis
Tammy Abraham scored like he did when the teams met last and gave his team breathing space by scoring the first for the London based outfit.
Timo Werner, although a Striker, has been deployed on the left wing by Lampard. He impresses by linking well on the left side and makes those runs back to help defend. Also he’s found his goal scoring form back and looks like he could get into double figures soon.
Hakim Ziyech was announced as the Man of the Match for providing 2 assist in this match. Lately, he assisted 1 and scored one, which makes his attack contribution 4 in 4 games, a 100% record and being touted as a wizard by social media for his deliveries into the box.
Ben Chilwell looked shaky at the back but made up for it by scoring, Thiago Silva looks decent and has already started firing, not bad for a 33 year we must say!
