Video: Chelsea take lead after Ben Chilwell cross-cum-shot sparks Sheffield United own goal

In the 23rd minute of this afternoon’s FA Cup Quarter-final between Chelsea and Sheffield United, the Blues took the lead after an own-goal.

Mason Mount whipped in a corner from the right flank, which wasn’t dealt with and ultimately bundled out to Ben Chilwell, who was sitting outside the box.

Chilwell took a touch on the edge of the area before drilling a cross-cum-shot in, towards the far post, the ball just evaded Emerson Palmieri when it was turned into the net by Oliver Norwood.
