Chelsea vs Sheffield United, Premier League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Chelsea welcomes struggling Sheffield United to Stamford Bridge in the Saturday afternoon clash of Premier League 2020-21

Match Timings: Nov 08, 1:30 AM 

Team Preview 

Frank Lampard's men are ready to earn all three points against Sheffield United to move closer to Liverpool and Southampton in the table. After playing a 3-3 draw with Southampton in mid-October, Chelsea boosted their defence. They held Sevilla and United to a goalless draw, followed by three consecutive wins with clean sheets in all matches. On Wednesday, they overcame French club Rennes 3-0 in the Champions League, courtesy of Timo Werner’s double first-half strike. 

Chelsea has now kept five clean sheets this season, and they are unbeaten in their last five Premier League outings. Lampard’s side has lost just one game of their last nine top-flight fixtures at Stamford Bridge. 

Meanwhile, Sheffield United had previously overcome Chelsea 3-0 in July this year, and unfortunately, it was the last win for the Blades in any competition. They are winless from 11 matches, which is the worst figure for Chris Wilder. They have taken just one point from their previous 10 Premier League matches and occupy the table's bottom spot. The only point came against Fulham in a 1-1 draw. This is the joint-worst ever start for Sheffield in their Premier League history. On a previous occasion, they finished at the bottom of the top flight. 

Sheffield scored just three goals this season, and the lack of scoring ability is hurting them in this crunch situation. Since their last victory in top-flight, they netted four times in 10 games, and surprisingly, two were penalties.
