Chelsea Vs Sheffield United Head to Head Stats and Records: Chelsea will host Sheffield United in the 4th game-week of the Premier League.
Chelsea finally achieved their first league victory of this season after defeating Norwich City in the dramatic encounter during the last game-week.
Giving Frank Lampard some relief, who did not have a great start to his managerial career at Chelsea by losing to fierce rivals Manchester United by 4-0.
Tammy Abraham opened his scoring for the senior side, and looks in good form. Moreover, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic seem to gel with the team well.
Although, despite the all positives for the Blues, Chelsea will not have an easy game against Sheffield United. The newly promoted side has a great defensive setup and are hard to be defeated.
The Blades are delivering more than expected, they have only conceded three goals in the three matches they have played. If Sheffield Wednesday’s fan Jamie Vardy hadn’t given a great performance, the tally could have been far more impressive.
Sheffield United have fetched 4 points in three games, same as Chelsea, who have been struggling defensively in the recent times.
Even though, Sheffield United is a hard nut to crack, but it would be expected from Chelsea to at least knick a win against them, if not dominate them. Hence it is important for Chelsea to secure three points, if they want to remain in the top-4 race.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United can make an upset, as they have been unpredictable so far and can give Chelsea, a run for their money. Overall, it will be an exciting match to look ahead, as both the sides are meeting after 12 years.
Callum Hudson Odoi, N’golo Kante and Pedro Rodriguez are expected to stay away from the team squad due to injury. On the other hand, apart from John Fleck, nobody is unfit for this clash at Sheffield United.
