    Cannot see how this Chelsea side finishes above a team like Leicester this season.

    Chelsea are a decent side. We played Leicester last week and can say Chelsea are a similar level to Leicester.

    Today Chelsea were 2-0 up and cruising, then they did the usual trick of sitting back trying to hold on to a lead.
    Where as SU relaxed, had nothing to lose and pushed forward. A draw today was probably a fair result in the end.

    Good result for Sheffield when it was London away.

    We weren't cruising by any means imo. Thought we were poor the entire 1st half then just allowed that 2-0 lead to excuse the fact we allowed you to dominated that entire 2nd half.

    Was driving, so didn’t get chance to watch any of the match...just listened to the radio who said that 1st half was our worse performance of the season, over respectful and negative. In the 2nd half we relaxed, had nothing to lose so naturally played with more freedom and positivity.

    Wouldn’t worry about it.......it’s been going on for 3 season, so many teams seem to have really poor performances when playing SU.
    We’ve played 4 teams so far.....Bournmouth and Palace were really poor having their worse performance in years
    And Leicester and Chelsea were both under par having to spend long spells defending.
    Wilder is still learning about the league....every season we have had slow starts but got stronger.
    So far so good.....Chris Wilder is an incredible manager.....3 years ago his SU were sat bottom of league 1.

    What a result from 2-0 down!

    We showed Chelsea too much respect in the first half but were hardly being put under serious pressure. Two big mistakes cost us in the first half and we had to push on in the second.

    Henderson made a great save to make up for his mistake to keep it at 2-1 and that seemed to give us an extra bit of belief, so chuffed we managed to get the equaliser. Those points can make a massive difference at the end of the season.

    It’s the not topic now of course you will find it if you look for it with a fan base of millions. Funny how United fans were exposed for racism with Rashford last week. Do I think all United fans are racist? Of course not.

    The racist are in the minority and certainly don’t speak for any whole fan base.

    Yeah, that's nice. But you missed the bit where I didn't say the entire Chelsea fanbase is racist.

    Glad to help.

    Fair result... Chelsea played in patches in the first half and scored 2 fortunate goals, both from errors.... Second half was the totally Sheffield's half and deserved the draw. Barkley was terrible gave the ball away to cheaply and looked sluggish and had no movement in midfield.... looked like he had been eating treacle pudding before the came on to the pitch.
    Great support from the Sheffield fans
    We have to remember we still have RLC, Kante, CHO and Rudiger to comeback all first team starters

    So “stay classy Chelsea fans” was only meant for a minority of the fan base. Bizarre.

    The Chelsea fans that do this type of shit, yes. Of which your team appears to have a larger proportion amongst its fan base than other teams.

    The fact you believe that is my whole point.

    No, your 'whole point' was that it's unreasonable to claim an entire fan base is racist. Which I agree with. You know, given that I wasn't saying that.

    Annoying thing is ... he is probably not even a Chelsea fan ... just some keyboard warrior... hope they trace him... they managed to do that to the Everton fan who abused Salah.
    Social media really needs to do something about these cretins

    I personally wouldn't play CHO, let alone include him in the squad, until he signs a new deal.
