Pochettino makes demand from Chelsea players after 2-2 draw with Sheffield Utd

 Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has urged his players to be “more clinical” following a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United on Sunday.

The Blues took the lead at Bramall Lane, as Thiago Silva stroked home from a corner kick.

But the hosts equalised before the break as Jayden Bogle smashed the ball in.

Although Noni Madueke restored Chelsea’s lead, Oli McBurnie ensured Sheffield took a point from the game.

Pochettino, speaking on Sky Sports, said: “If we analyse after the game then a draw was fair for both teams. In the Premier League you need to try to play well and also control games.

“All the teams in the Premier League are good. Today we conceded in the last few minutes. We feel really bad in the way we conceded but we need to keep moving.

“We need to be more clinical. The team is scoring a lot of goals but we are conceding too much. We need to find this balance. At the moment we can’t get the right balance of scoring goals and conceding less. We are struggling in this thing and it is something we need to improve if we want to be in a different position in the table.”
