Chelsea News and Form
Frank Lampard got his first win as Chelsea boss last weekend. That was from a 3-2 win at Norwich in an open, end to end game. It was another strong attacking display from the Blues who seem to be growing in confidence in that department. It was another poor defensive showing from them though. That is seven goals conceded in their three games played this season, but that looks as if it is the way it is going to be for the Blues.
Tammy Abraham netted a brace last weekend to join Mason Mount as joint top scorer with two goals for Chelsea this season. Mount though was injured in the game and had to go off, so he’s a doubt. Pedro is in the same boat as well. In their one home game this season, Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw with Leicester. The Blues had started brightly in the fixture, but then just ran out of steam in the second half
That’s the way it was in their opening 4-0 defeat at Manchester United. It is certainly worth expecting both teams to score from a betting angle. 50% of Chelsea’s goals this season have come in the first fifteen minutes of matches. Again, strong starters, perhaps not so strong finishers. The Blues will be defending a ten-match undefeated streak of form in the Premier League in this one.
Chelsea v Sheffield United Head to Head
This is the first meeting since the 2006/07 Premier League season
Chelsea are on a three-match winning streak in the EPL against the Blades
The head to head is three wins each from six previous EPL classes
Four of the six previous EPL meetings went over 2.5 goals
Sheffield United News and Form
Sheffield United can be pleased with their season so far. They are sat on the same points as Chelsea are heading into this one. They started the season with a great 1-1 away draw at Bournemouth and then it got better as they claimed a home success at Crystal Palace. But the Blades fell at Bramall Lane last weekend in a 2-1 loss against Leicester.
So now comes the hard task of picking themselves up after a loss. Ollie McBurnie came off the bench to get their goal last weekend, which was an equalising goal actually. So the summer signing is surely pushing for a starting place.
In that game against Leicester, to be fair to Sheffield United, Leicester’s winner from Harvey Barnes was a spectacular effort. It took something special for the Foxes to get the better of the Blades. With them having scored in all three of their games this season, they should be backed to get on the board.
Chelsea v Sheffield United Tips & Odds
Who will win – Chelsea v Sheffield United Predictions
Chelsea can’t be trusted to get a clean sheet in any situation and therefore because we expected them to come away with the win, it has to be Chelsea to win & both teams to score. The Blades will scrap and work hard, but will likely be unravelled.
