Chelsea were held back at home against Sheffield United last week when they suffered a 2-2 draw.
The Blues took an early lead as they went up 2-0 in the first half thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham. However, the second half was a poor display from the Pensioners as Sheffield took advantage of Chelsea’s weak defensive lapses and secured a two goal comeback out of nothing.
In the aftermath of the draw, the Blues midfielder Ross Barkley has spoken out about the reaction of the people in the dressing room.
Barkley said: “There’s loads of talent in there in the changing room. The players we’ve got are unbelievable but today we weren’t at the level we should be. We didn’t perform well.
“You’ve just got to try and make things happen and we didn’t create enough chances, didn’t hit the target as much as we should have.
“But we all know. We all spoke in the changing room after the game and we all held our hands up. Tammy scored two goals but he can’t win the game on his own.”
Chelsea go into the international break knowing that this team has a lot of potential but will have to work very hard to actually produce results on a weekly basis.
