Chelsea vs Sheffield United Prediction: Premier League Match on 07.11.2020
Chelsea have been in excellent form over recent weeks, and they will be looking to continue this excellent run with a strong performance against Sheffield United on Saturday.
Premier League Preview
Chelsea have been getting stronger and stronger as the season has been progressing, and they will come into this fixture against Sheffield United looking to keep a fifth clean sheet in a row. Frank Lampard has certainly got his wish of making the Blues more resilient at the back, as experts had been critical of his side’s ability in the defensive third. Chelsea will be aware that a win this weekend could lift them as high as second in the league standings, which could mean that Lampard’s side could enter the discussions of potential title contenders.
Chelsea warmed up for this fixture with a comprehensive 3-0 victory against Rennes in the Champions League. Fortune certainly favoured the Blues in that game, as the French side went down to ten men after a dubious decision. Timo Werner scored a brace in the victory, while there was also a goal for Tammy Abraham.
Sheffield United have been unable to match the levels that they were setting last season, as they have failed to win in the Premier League so far this season. They are one of only two teams that are yet to win a top-flight game so far this season, with the other being West Bromwich Albion. United’s problems can be highlighted by the fact that they have picked up just one point from seven games so far this season, and they come into this fixture having lost their last two. The most recent of those defeats was against Manchester City, but the fighting performance would have certain given Chris Wilder hope that his side have enough to get through this challenge.
Chelsea vs Sheffield United Head To Head
Sheffield United have a decent record against Chelsea in the Premier League era, as they have won four of the eight meetings. One of those victories came last season, as they beat the Blues 3-0 at Bramall Lane.
Chelsea vs Sheffield United Prediction
The Blades do have a very good record against Chelsea in the Premier League, but it’s hard to ignore the form that Chelsea have shown over recent weeks. A home win will be considered a banker for gamblers this weekend.
