Chelsea come back off the rails in Brentford defeat

Chelsea duo Cole Palmer and Nicholas Jackson scored a goal each as the Blues earned all three points in a Premier League encounter at home against Sheffield United on Saturday.

The Blues were able to recover from last week’s 2-0 setback at Goodison Park to Everton.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side won 2-0 in front of their home fans, thanks to goals from Cole Palmer and Nicolas Jackson.

After a scoreless first half, the Blues took the lead in the 54th minute when Palmer converted Sterling’s right-wing cross, his sixth goal of the season.

After collecting the ball from Palmer, Chelsea striker Jackson increased the advantage seven minutes later.

He finished the game 2-0 by striking the ball into Sheffield’s net from close range.
