The match is over.
Sheffield United have started off the season fairly brightly but face their first real test away at Chelsea against a team high on confidence after the win at Norwich.
Chelsea have suffered from not being able to bring any new faces in but it has meant that some younger players have been given a chance. This could make for an entertaining game with both sides likely to score.
CHELSEA TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Chelsea have not been able to keep a clean sheet so far so that suggests that the Sheffield United attack may get a chance here. Chelsea have been scoring goals as well though so the fans could well go home happy from this one.
TOTAL GOALS OVER 3.5
Tammy Abraham has answered some of his critics who were not convinced that he had what it takes to score goals in the Premier League. Sheffield United have also shown that they don’t do defensive bore draws. There should be goals here.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Head to Head
Due to Sheffield United’s absence from the top flight of English football there have not been many recent games between these two clubs. Chelsea were able to win both league games without conceding a goal in the 2006/07 season.
Chelsea to win the match
Frank Lampard does seem as if he may have a tough time this season, while still managing to get Chelsea finishing in the upper reaches of the league. Champions League qualification may not be achieved but the Blues should be able to get all three points against the Blades.
