Sheffield United vs Chelsea FC – Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

This Saturday, the 11th of July, 2020, the EPL will continue as Sheffield Vs Chelsea FC gets underway at Bramall Lane on Match Day 35.

The Blues come off a hard fought 3-2 win over Crystal Palace. Chelsea remain 3rd on the league table after Leicester City failed to pick up a victory against Arsenal on Tuesday. They have 60 points from 34 league appearance with a current form that reads; WWWLWW. So far, the London club have 18W, 6D and 10L. Chelsea have done very well this season considering their transfer ban and are primed for a top finish to qualify for European competition. We can expect a 4-3-3 formation from Frank Lampard with Giroud, Willian and Christian Pulisic leading the attack. Tammy Abraham has scored 13 times in the league but has failed to command a starting place. Meanwhile, Willian has 8 goals and 5 assists and will be looking to add to that tally on Saturday.

It will be Sheffield United’s 35th league appearance of the season and their sixth game post Covid-19 pandemic. They are in 7th place on the EPL table. They are falling behind in the race to qualify for European competition but are doing everything possible to grab as many points as possible. Their current form reads; DLLWDW. Sheffield United have 13W, 12D and 9L in 34 league appearances and have been one of the best sides to watch over the course of the season. They have scored 35 times and conceded 33 goals which gives them a +2GD. Head Coach Chris Wilder, is expected to use a 3-5-2 formation that has been his most preferred system this season. French forward Lys Mousset who has 5 goals and 4 assists is expected to play a key role as the “Blades” face the “Blues” on Saturday.

The reverse fixture in August, 2019 ended 2-2. Previously, they played in March, 2007 and it ended 3-0 with Chelsea picking maximum points. Before those two games, they met once more previously and it ended 2-0 in favor of Chelsea.

Chelsea have 5 wins in 6 games and look certain to add another “W” to the list.

1-3 is predicted at full-time.
