Sheffield United vs Chelsea Predictions
Chelsea climbed to third and look likely to claim a Champions League spot.
Sheffield United’s incredible season continued with a win that sees them return to seventh. Chelsea are back up to third after a narrow win over Crystal Palace.
The Blues have hit goal-scoring form since the restart but come up against a defensively solid side in Sheffield United. The Blades returned to their first choice backline and kept out Wolves as a result.
Chelsea’s chances may well be limited but they should find a way through.
Sheff Utd Have Refound their Form
Sheffield United have had a mixed restart to the Premier League. The Blades had taken just one point from their opening three games, without finding the back of the net. Two of those games were unexpected 3-0 defeats.
Nevertheless, Chris Wilder’s side have bounced back with wins over Tottenham and Wolves and a late equaliser against Burnley to take them three points off Wolves.
The Blades don’t have the best of records against the current top five this season. They have, drawn two and lost six so far.
Ollie McBurnie is a doubt whilst John Lundstram could be set to return.
Chelsea Heading to Champions League
Chelsea have won five of their last six league games, suffering just one defeat in eight. The Blues put their 3-2 defeat to West Ham behind them with a professional 3-0 win over Watford, followed up by a narrow 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.
Each of their last eight league games have featured over 2.5 goals, with only three sides having outscored Chelsea this campaign.
Chelsea have been poor defensively, rarely managing a shut out. Their win to nil over Watford was immediately followed by conceding twice to a goal-shy Crystal Palace side.
N’Golo Kanté and Mateo Kovacic are set to miss out.
