Does Sheffield also put the blues offensive to sleep?
The fight for the Champions League in the English Premier League continues to intensify. Because contenders Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester United are all still not sure that the European Cup exclusion of the Citizens will also last before the international sports court, it is the aim of every club to make the season in the top four and not on to finish the insecure fifth place.
The best starting position is currently the Blues, who thanks to their 3-2 away win at Crystal Palace on Tuesday jumped past Leicester to position three. On Saturday, coach Frank Lampard’s team again faces an uncomfortable opponent. Before the Sheffield United game against Chelsea, the odds of the best bookmakers clearly move towards the Londoners.
Of course, the undertaking is not easy from the point of view of the favorite, especially since between Sheffield United and Chelsea the forecast should take into account that the promoted player has not lost at home since January. The blades also represent a very compact defensive, so we expect a test of patience for the men from Stamford Bridge.
The bet that it will be 0-0 after a tough first half is therefore as attractive as the Sheffield United against Chelsea tip on Under 2.5 goals in the course of the game. Can the Wilder Elf after Arsenal, ManUtd and Tottenham annoy the next big name on Bramall Lane?
Sheffield United – Statistics & current form
Anyone who thought that the Sheffield promoted team would collapse towards the end of the season after a failed start with just one point from three games and not a single goal on the home stretch has been deceived since Wednesday evening at the latest. With the 1-0 home win against Wolverhampton, the blades ended an outstanding week with seven points from three games and thus have a promising starting position in the race for the Europa League.
Sheffield continues to dream of the Europa League
The Red-Whites are currently in seventh place, which is likely to be enough to take part in international business due to the constellation in the FA Cup semi-final. Even the Wolves in sixth are only one meter away. With Arsenal, Tottenham and Burnley, however, three competitors are lurking behind them, who hope that the Wilder-Elf will slip on Saturday.
However, this seems rather unlikely in the current constitution. The only two Premier League home games after the break were victorious. Overall, the blades have been unbeaten in their own stadium for five games. The last loss, a 0-1 loss to Manchester City, came in January of this year. It was one of only five bankruptcies in 17 encounters at Bramall Lane.
The top teams struggle on Bramall Lane
Even more interesting is the statistic that only Leicester City (1: 2), Manchester United (3: 3) and Newcastle United (0: 2) were able to score two goals in the English industrial city. Even Liverpool or Manchester City, who won 1-0, had an extremely difficult time against the third best home defensive. Also on Saturday we expect the defender’s concentrated defense performance, which is why our tip between Sheffield United and Chelsea goes towards a low-goal match.
Luke Freemann and Leon Clarke will be missing injured. For that, John Fleck and David McGoldrick are facing a return to the team. Both want to help make the Europa League dreams come true. There is a chance of winning a point, but only if the red-whites get a grip on the blues attack. If so, the 13 Under 2.5 waves in their 18th home game this season.
Probable lineup of Sheffield United:
↪ Henderson – O’Conell, Egan, Basham – Stevens, Lundstram, Norwood, Berge, Baldock – Mousset, McGoldrick

Chelsea – Statistics & current form
Chelsea FC can be satisfied with the performance so far after the forced break. The Lampard team won four of the five Premier League matches. In addition, the Londoners moved through a success at Leicester City to the semi-finals of the FA Cup. The only drawback was the unnecessary 2: 3 loss in the capital derby at West Ham United.
As the betting base table service shows, the blues, as currently third, still have it in their own hands to fix the renewed participation in the Champions League. However, since the lead is only two points and there are still matches with Liverpool or Wolverhampton on the program for the remaining four game days, the Lampard team would be well advised to have a three on Saturday evening.
Chelsea have not played to zero away since December 2019
To try to predict the away win between Sheffield United and Chelsea, just look at the Blues’ away record. Only Liverpool scored more points abroad than the Londoners. However, because the most recent guest appearances were all very scarce and mostly even on the brink, the odds for a three-third of the rank in the strong blades at home are too low.
There is also a lot of risk in recommending a bet on Under 2.5 goals before the Sheffield United vs Chelsea game, after all, at least three goals have been scored in the past eight Premier League matches with CFC participation.
The potent offensive has recently been accompanied by an unstable defense in many cases. With Coach Lampard announcing that he wants to start here, we expect improved defensive performance and possibly the first “away from home” since December 22, 2019. N’Kante and Kovacic are two central midfielders who have been injured.
Probable line-up of Chelsea:
↪ Arrizabalaga – Azpilicueta, Rüdiger, Christensen, James – Mount, Jorginho, Loftus Cheek – Pulisic, Abraham, Willian
Last games from Chelsea:
⚽️ 07/07 2020 Crystal Palace 2-3 Chelsea London
⚽️ 07/04 2020 Chelsea London 3 – 0 Watford
⚽️ 07/01 2020 West Ham 3 – 2 Chelsea London
⚽️ 06/28 2020 Leicester 0 – 1 Chelsea London
⚽️ 06/25 2020 Chelsea London 2 – 1 Manchester City
Sheffield United vs Chelsea Direct comparison
For the first time after a break of almost 15 years, the two teams faced each other again in the Premier League in the first half of the current season. Tammy Abraham put the blues in the lead with a double pack before half-time, but the promoted player struck back after the break and secured a 2-2 draw. The Blades’ last Premier League win against Chelsea dates back to 1994.

Which team can impose their own philosophy on Bramall Lane on Saturday evening? Will it be a Sheffield-style defensive spectacle or will there be an open exchange of blows as the blues hope for? We believe in scenario number one and base this primarily on the experience we have gathered in home games of the blades against absolute top teams.
The star ensemble from Liverpool as well as perhaps the best technical offensive in the world from Manchester City struggled against the surprise team and were only scarce 1-0 successes in the industrial city. Even at the weekend, we can well imagine that a real test of patience is waiting for Chelsea.
