Kurt Zouma late own goal rubbishes Tammy Abraham 2 goals against Blades

Chelsea was handed their second draw of the season as late own goal from Kurt Zouma cancels Tammy Abraham’s double.

Chelsea had a good start as they welcome newly-promoted Sheffield United to Stamford Bridge but all turned sour when Kourt Zouma own goal dashed hopes about Tammy Abraham double.

Tammy Abraham once again delivered today and earlier at the 14th minute when he converted Pulisic’s touch into a fine striking finish not knowing his efforts were going to be wasted by Kurt Zouma at the 89th-minute.

The Blades managed to stay in the game as they kept fighting until the 42nd minute when the defence got a bit confused.

Egan and O’Connell went for Jorginho’s looping pass which beautifully landed for Tammy Abraham who carefully placed it into the bottom left corner.

The first half ended with Chelsea maintaining the lead but just a few minutes into the second half, Callum Robbinson makes up his miss earlier with a fine shot into the net.

Tammy Abraham indeed thought his hat-trick was in the bag already when he managed to beat his maker on receiving Azpilicueta’s cross but his on-target flick somehow got caught by Sheffield United keeper, Dean Henderson.

Down to the 68th minute, Jorginho and Kovacic were happily spraying the ball around the centre as they took most of the ball’s possession.

But guess there might have been a little mistake when Frank Lampard decided to give teenager and opportunity by pulling Matteo Kovacic from the midfield and Tammy Abraham from the frontline.

Michy Batshuayi although came in for Kovacic but he went to the frontline as Tammy Abraham was pulled for the young boy, Billy Gilmour.

Just at the 89th minute, Zouma is caught battling with Mousett for the final touch as Callum Robbinson whips in the ball from the left and it ends up in Chelsea net via an own-goal from Kurt Zouma and cancels Tammy Abraham first-half goals.
