This is the third success for Sheffield United in the last five rounds. During this period they were also able to defeat Newcastle (1:0). This was the first victory of the Blades in the current championship. They sensationally took away points from Manchester United (2:1) on the road. In addition to these victorious matches, Chris Wilder's wards lost for this segment to Manchester City (0:1) and Tottenham (1:3).
Nine points did not really improve Sheffield United's standings. The team continues to close the Premier League table with 11 points on its balance sheet. However, the "blades" were drawn to other outsiders. They are just one point behind West Brom and three points ahead of Fulham. Nevertheless, the “red-blacks” have already lagged well behind the saving 17th position by 11 points.
Sheffield United remain one of the least damaging teams in the championship. For 11 rounds they scored only 14 goals, which is less than only Burnley (13).
Due to injuries, defenders Jack Robinson, Jack O'Connell and midfielder Sander Berge are missing the match. According to the terms of the contract, Ethan Ampadu cannot play. The participation in the duel of two more key defenders is in question: George Baldock and End Stevens.
This was the second victory in a row of the London club in three matches, which the capital's footballers played under the guidance of the new coach Thomas Tuchel. In previous rounds with a new coach, they first shared points with Wolverhampton (0:0) and then defeated Burnley (2:0).
Chelsea moved up to sixth place in the standings. Pensioners are now four points behind the Champions League zone.
When it comes to the away game, Chelsea have a modest performance. In 11 away matches they achieved only five wins, two matches ended in a draw and four times lost. Note that all four defeats at the London club happened in six previous trips.
Chelsea have few personnel losses. Only defender Thiago Silva will definitely not play due to injury. Kai Havertz and Kurt Zuma are injured. Their presence in the match is questionable.
Our prediction is a total under 2.5 goals for 1.98 in BC 1xBet.
