Chelsea made a very serious mistake in the 6th minute. Mateo Kovacic sent a pass to Timo Werner, who jumped alone against Aaron Ramsdale. The German striker transferred the goalkeeper, but his shot was not strong enough and Chris Bashum managed to clear the ball.
Referee Kevin Friend played a penalty for Sheffield United in the 12th minute after marking Ben Chillwell's foul on Chris Bashum. The situation was dealt with by the VAR and the penalty was revoked because Bashum was in an ambush at the time of the pass.
