Chelsea dominated the early possession against Sheffield United, but we always knew the Blades were going to be dangerous, and they’ve just scored to take the lead.
Mason Mount has been the fall-guy for most fans, as he tried to dribble out of his own area to start a counter attack rather than just clearing the ball.
It seems a little unfair, as it was actually a catalogue of errors. Mount gives up the chance to begin with, but then the central defenders fail to clear the cross, Kepa fails to hold the shot, Reece James plays everyone onside and the defenders are slow to react once again as David McGoldrick reacted to score.
They’ve now scored their second, and it will be a tough battle back from here.
If you’re in the UK, you can see the highlight in the clip here:
David McGoldrick is finally a Premier League goalscorer!
He puts the hosts a goal up against Chelsea!

Fans weren’t happy, and they identified Mason Mount as the main culprit:

Mason Mount made a mistake by trying to dribble past an opponent practically inside our box and some are saying that Jorginho and Kepa could've done better there. Can't be serious.#SHUCHE

Take it to the bank, Frank Lampard is a clueless manager.
Plus, how does Mason Mount make this team? Dude is poor.
He doesn't deserve to be start games…

"Sometimes playing simple football is the best way of playing football"
Mason Mount should be clearing that ball at the first place! Simple things male a big difference

Shocker by Mason Mount, not clearing his lines. He gets a lot of stick but it was a good save by Kepa considering the deflection, nothing else he could do

that goal is on you @masonmount_10 …..clear your fucking lines instead of trying to dribble the ball out of the box……sick turn over leading to a goal. RIP

"[He] will be disappointed there Mason Mount" that's it. For blindly turning and dribbling out of your 18yrd box and being dispossessed which leads to a goal against your team. That's all the commentators say.
