Chelsea Recovered From Antonio Rudiger's Own Goal to Move Up to Fifth in the Premier League
Premier League giants Chelsea beat Sheffield United 2-1 this weekend, thanks to goals from Mason Mount and Jorginho.
Thomas Tuchel's newly rejuvenated Chelsea side just enjoyed their third win in a row against the bottom-placed team, Sheffield United, in this weekend of the Premier League.
It was a great strike from Mason Mount and a cheeky hop-style penalty from the side's midfield maestro, Jorginho, which inspired them to get all three points with a 2-1 win over Sheffield United.
It's been a couple of weeks since Chelsea fired their club legend, Frank Lampard as their manager following a run of poor results, and the fans are loving life under the new boss Thomas Tuchel.
The first game for the former PSG boss ended up in a draw against Wolverhampton Wanders, but positive signs did show from the first game in charge. The West London side got all six points in their last two games against the likes of Burnley and rivaled Tottenham Hotspurs, which put them in great momentum ahead of the late-night crash.

Chelsea's display in the Bramall Lane was as impressive as the side have been playing for the past couple of weeks. There might have been many followers who were skeptical ahead of that fixture, considering the fixture last night where Chris Wilder's side thrashed the London club with a staggering scoreline of 3-0.

Tuchel's man started with a back three again, like they have been doing for the past two games. However, the incoming manager did make a few changes dropping Marcos Alonso, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Thiago Silva for the likes of Ben Chilwell, Oliver Giroud, and Andreas Christensen.
The London-based side took the lead from an assist from Timo Werner, which was stuck clean from Mason Mount's weaker left foot. Sheffield United did show signs of returning as Antonio Rudiger scored an own goal in the 55th minute. Despite all that, all the hopes were shattered as the German striker Timo Werner won a penalty in the 58th minute, which was struck clean by Jorginho.
