Chelsea’s Champions League chase suffered a huge setback as they beaten like a thief who stole a piece of phone battery at the popular Alaba International Market, OJo, Lagos by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
The first of two defensive lapses early in the first half gave David Mcgoldrick his first league goal of the season and the 32 years old eventually got a brace on the night to become the oldest player to score a brace against Chelsea since Westham’s Paolo Di Canio aged 34 did in September, 2002.
Despite having the Lion and Elephant share of the possession with 76%, the blues couldn’t down a resolute defense of the Blades who are yet to lose from a winning position when playing at home.
Chelsea’s loss means the race for the remaining Champions League tickets is now widely open as the likes of Leicester City and Manchester United will look to take advantage.
The Blues are currently in third position with 60 points, Leicester City are in fourth with 59, while Manchester United have 58 in fifth position on the log.
