Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed why his team played out a 2-2 draw with newly-promoted side Sheffield United in their Premier League clash on Saturday.

Lampard and his players led 2-0 at the halftime interval before they were pegged back in the second half by the visitors.

After the game, Frank Lampard told reporters that his team paid dearly for their nonchalant attitude especially in the second half of the Premier League encounter.

The ex-Chelsea midfielder pointed to a lack of concentration on the part of his players as the reason for the home draw with Premier League newcomers Sheffield United.

In-form striker Tammy Abraham continued his good goalscoring form in front of goal after he scored two goals in the first half to give his team a two-nil lead at the halftime interval.

Tammy Abraham also equaled the record set by his manager Frank Lampard while he was a player for Chelsea.

Lampard was the first Englishman to score two goals in two straight games in the Premier League era in January 2010 and Tammy Abraham was able to match that record after his brace in the 3-2 win over Norwich City in the penultimate league game.

Sheffield United scored two goals in the second half through Callum Robinson and Kurt Zouma (own goal) to take a point from the game.
