Mason Mount and Jorginho spared Antonio Rudiger’s blushes as Chelsea secured a third consecutive top-flight win against Sheffield United.
Thomas Tuchel maintained his unbeaten start to life at Chelsea as goals from Mason Mount and Jorginho sealed a 2-1 Premier League win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday.
The German’s first game in charge after replacing Frank Lampard was an underwhelming 0-0 draw with Wolves, but he has now masterminded three wins on the spin to move the Blues up to fifth, one point behind fourth-place Liverpool.
They did not have it all their own way against Chris Wilder’s side, however, the Yorkshire side cancelling out Mount’s first-half opener after the interval courtesy of a slapstick own goal from Antonio Rudiger.
Chelsea secured all three points soon after, though, when Jorginho followed up his decisive penalty against Tottenham in midweek with another successful spot-kick.
