Chelsea reached their fourth straight win and completed 11 unbeaten games this Saturday by defeating Sheffield United 4-1 at Stamford Bridge for the eighth round of the Premier League. Captain of the team in the match, defender Thiago Silva scored his first goal with the shirt of the London team.
The victory was a turning point. Sheffield opened the scoring early on, on nine minutes, in a beautiful goal by McGoldrick. He scored by letter, inside the small area, after a good play rehearsed in a penalty kick. But the hosts turned in the first half, with great influence from Ziyech.
Frank Lampard’s team reached 15 points and occupies the third position in the Premier League, but can be overtaken by Leicester and Tottenham, who still play in the round. The Blues have only one loss in 13 games of the season to Liverpool. Sheffield is the English Premier League scorer with just one point.
