Sheffield United 2-2 Chelsea: Blades snare stoppage-time point from Blues

Oliver McBurnie's stoppage-time goal gave Sheffield United a second equalizer and a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

Thiago Silva gave the Blues an early lead that Jayden Bogle took away before halftime, but Noni Madueke struck in the second half to restore Chelsea's advantage.

Bogle then helped a long an aerial ball that McBurnie snuck past Djordje Petrovic in the 92nd minute, giving the Blades a point and depriving Chelsea of all three points.


The Blues move onto 44 points after claiming five points this week beginning with a 2-2 draw with Burnley and a 4-3 victory over Manchester United prior to this draw. Their European hopes are alive, having played the fewest matches in the league and sitting just five points behind sixth-place Manchester United.

As for the Blades (16 points), well, they may need to double their season points haul over the final seven games to have hope of a great escape. Time is running out on Chris Wilder's men but this was a nice moment for the home crowd.
