Sheffield United have convincingly defeated in-form Chelsea at Bramall Lane, in the competitive English Premier League on Saturday.
BBC reports that Sheffield has moved into the Premier League’s top six with the win as a continued push for European qualification.
On goals scored during the interesting match, David McGoldrick’s first Premier League goal opened the scoring, pouncing after Kepa Arrizabalaga who had saved brilliantly from a deflected Oli McBurnie shot in the 18th minute.
Chelsea were ruthlessly punished for their porous defence 15 minutes after Enda Stevens crossed and McBurnie was left completely unmarked in the six-yard box to power home a simple header.
McGoldrick completed the damage when he capitalised on a dreadful defensive mix-up to plunder his second late in the second half.
The visitors had scored the most number of away goals in the Premier League before this match, including three at Crystal Palace in midweek, but never looked like adding to their tally.
Manager Chris Wilder has drawn many plaudits this season for Sheffield United’s organisation and team ethic, their desire to keep the ball out of their net a telling contrast to the fragility of their illustrious visitors.
Considering who goes and who qualifies for the Champions League, will depend on the wins and losses of the teams at the top five.
If Leicester City and Manchester United win their games in hand against Bournemouth and Southampton respectively, Champions League-chasing Chelsea, currently third, could find themselves in fifth when next in action against Norwich on Tuesday.
