In their first visit to the Bridge since 2007, Sheffield United will be hoping to cause a bit of a shock and win their second Premier League game of the season. 

 

Chris Wilder’s side have already beaten Crystal Palace 1-0 at Brammal Lane and they also picked up an encouraging 2-1 win over Blackburn in the Carabao Cup. 

 

Chelsea, on the other hand, have enjoyed a rocky start to their campaign. Defeats to Manchester United on the opening day, Liveprool in the Super Cup and a draw with Leicester City have hardly helped Frank Lampard in his new position. 

 

Nevertheless, their latest 3-2 win over Norwich is likely to give his side a lot of confidence heading into this all important contest with Sheffield United. 

 

Looking at the betting, the recommendation is to back the home side to win by a margin of two goals. 

 

This is a bet that is priced at 3/1 and has to be considered with Chelsea looking rather impressive away at Carrow Road last week. 

 

United, meanwhile, did look a tad disappointing in their 2-1 loss to Leicester City.
