Thomas Tuchel has brought Chelsea right back into the top 4 race.
Asked about the race after beating the Blades, Tuchel said: “It is clear that we are responsible now for a situation where we are close to where we want to be.
“We want to try everything to reach the top four and we said this very clear when we started. So now the guys put themselves in the situation where we are the hunters for the teams in front of us and we are close.”
But Tuchel warned his players not to get ahead of themselves after three straight victories.
He added: “It changes nothing because the next game in the league will be a home game [against Newcastle] and like everybody else we will be under pressure to continue our run and build on the momentum.
“We will not allow anybody to focus on the future.
“Today is the best example. What will it help you if you see that Sheffield are very, very low, but if you analyse the team you see their result against Man United.
“They are bottom of the league, but you have to come here, accept the challenge, play humble. This is what you do and from there on it is now the next challenge to improve, play [in the] FA Cup and the next game and keep on going. The future will take care of itself.”
