Sheffield United - Premier League - 31 August 2019

Chelsea also failed to hold on to a lead in a 1-1 draw against Leicester City in their first home game of the season and Lampard is likely to turn to central defender Toni Rudiger who is close to recovering full fitness after an injury. Four of which came against Manchester United - a game in where he gave away a penalty.

"I was scared it could take longer but really recovery has gone very well and I am really happy everything has gone to plan". They have taken their ambitious style with two up front and overlapping centre halves into the top flight and players such as Robinson, who responded to missing a sitter in the first half by scoring one and making another, are seizing their chances.

I think he will as it's only the start for him in terms of his Chelsea career. I didn't know what to do, I just punched the air.

Chelsea Football Club also issued a statement regarding the situation.

"The chance was playing on my mind", acknowledged Robinson. It's important the manager has faith in me, it's positive and I can't wait. We were taking too much time. Everyone is in it together. But it's even more important at the back. Now, sitting on this side, we have intelligent players.

"To come roaring back as we did in the second half hopefully gives us an enormous amount of confidence and self-belief going forward". It's not a cup tie, we are here on merit.

In his BBC column, Crooks said: 'I must be honest, I never thought that Tammy Abraham was a Chelsea player.

The result leaves Frank Lampard still looking for a first home win in charge. Blades goalkeeper Dean Henderson fumbled a header from the in-form striker under pressure from Mason Mount and Abraham scored with the rebound.

Lampard has had his hand forced in turning to youth, but it is a method to which he is fully committed and he awarded a first start to centre back Fikayo Tomori, who was on loan with Lampard at Derby last season. The goal made up for an earlier miss by the former Preston man.

The Blues raced into the lead through Tammy Abraham in the 19th minute before the Anglo-Nigerian completed his brace two minutes prior to half-time to put his side on the path of victory.
