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.

Our Betting Tips

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.

Statistics

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.

Stats

  • Chelsea have had a mixed bag of results so far and it looks like it might not be the easiest of seasons for new manager Frank Lampard. His side have conceded seven goals already.
  • This is the first time Sheffield United have competed in the Premier League for 12 years – it took them seven games then to get as many points as they have already achieved this season.
  • Chelsea’s top goal scorers this season – Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount – had hardly featured for the club before the start of this season.
  • Oliver McBurnie, who scored in the recent 2-1 defeat to Leicester City, is Sheffield United’s record transfer signing – costing £17 million from Swansea.

Our Prediction for Chelsea vs Sheffield United

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.
