Chelsea vs Sheffield United Match Analysis and Prediction

The In-form Chelsea side has a chance to move one point close to Premier League leaders Liverpool in the title race. The side play host to Sheffield United this weekend at Stamford Bridge. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 8:30 pm.

After a shaky start to the Premier League, it seems like the Blues have put their defensive woes against them. It will be put to the test against an out-of-form Sheffield United side with only one point so far in the league.

It was only three months ago when Lampard’s defensive woes were evident with the side failing to keep a clean sheet. A 3-3 draw to Southampton last month made it nine goals conceded in their five Premier League games.

The introduction of Eduardo Mendy seemed the miracle Lampard awaited for after a disaster class by Kepa Arrizzabalaga. The goalkeeper currently has five clean sheets so far across all competition. Their last outing in the Champions League saw the skipper come against his previous side while maintaining a clean sheet.

Sheffield United are one of the four clubs in the Premier League that can boast of posing a win against Chelsea. It follows their 3-0 comfortable win against the Blues in July. However, times changes with Chris Wilder currently with an 11 winless streak in the Premier League. Ten games without a win are proving hard for Wilder.
