Sheffield United delivered a fine second half performance to take a point from Stamford Bridge.
The Blades were two goals down but rallied following the half-time break with a strike from Callum Robinson and an own goal from Kurt Zouma handing them a share of the spoils.
Indeed, Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder was helped by some fine performances in the second 45 minutes, with left-back Enda Stevens putting in a fine display.
Stevens’ cross led to Robinson getting the first goal back while he handled Christian Pulisic and then Willian with aplomb over the course of the 90 minutes.
On the day he made 2 successful tackles, with Oliver Norwood the only Sheffield United player to have made more (via WhoScored).
The Republic of Ireland international’s performance has since brought fans from Bramall Lane out to sing his praises.
Twitter was awash with the above, with plenty of United fans taking their chance to give their thoughts on the flying wing-back…

Blades signed the likes of Stevens for the price of a Gregg's sausage roll. Makes a mockery of some of the millions squiffed on 'better players'.
