Chelsea continued their resurgent run of form with a win over Sheffield United, their third on the trot and fourth unbeaten match.
Chelsea won a third straight match in the Premier League, courtesy of a 2-1 success over Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane. Mason Mount and Jorginho were on target for the visitors in either half and their respective goals were sandwiched between an own goal from Antonio Rudiger, which was a result of terrible miscommunication at the back.
The Blues have now climbed up to fifth in the league standings after their result runs, just one point behind defending champions Liverpool who are sitting fourth. Given the way they slumped midway through the season, Chelsea would be happy with a top-four finish and they are definitely on track to achieve their goals with another win under Thomas Tuchel.
Here is a look at the three talking points from a narrow win for the Pensioners.
WERNER GRADUALLY STARTS TICKING FOR TUCHEL
Timo Werner played a part in both goals as he teed up Mount before winning the penalty that was eventually converted by Jorginho. The German international also won the spot-kick against Tottenham Hotspur last week, which shows that he is slowly and steadily getting into the groove- which is a very good sign for Chelsea.
He has gone over 16 hours of football without a goal, but the player’s recent performances are cooling the criticism which he has received. Tuchel seems to have found the formula to get the best out of Werner and heading into the business end of the season, it is imperative that the club’s lucrative marksman starts to deliver.
