The battle for Europe continues this weekend as Chelsea look to reaffirm their place in the top four and Sheffield United hope to close in on a Europa League spot.

Here are some key stats to help you in your quest.
Who will win the game?
This is a hugely difficult game to call. In Sheffield United you have a team with a very strong home record who have only conceded two more goals at home than league leaders Liverpool. On the other hand, Chelsea is a team with the second-best away record in the league having won 30 points from their 17 games on the road.
Their first meeting earlier this season ended in a 2-2 draw and it wouldn’t be a major shock if both teams had to share a point again.
Which team will get the first goal?
Since the season resumed, Chelsea have been involved in six competitive games; the last five have all seen Chelsea score the opening goal. Sheffield may be a strong side that is tough to break down however, the Blades have recently been conceding a lot more goals than they normally do. With that in mind, it is Chelsea who are more likely to get on the scoresheet first.
Which will be the highest scoring half?
Interestingly, Sheffield United have scored six goals since the season resumed and five of them have come in the second half. Chelsea’s goals are more evenly spread out across the two halves however, it does seem that the second period is more likely to see goals.
When the two teams last met, Chelsea grabbed two first-half goals but they were pegged back in the second part of the game as Sheffield also netted twice.
How many goals will Tammy Abraham score?
After going through eight appearances without a goal, Abraham finally got on the scoresheet last Tuesday. His goal proved to be the match winner against Crystal Palace as the Blues continue the hunt for Champions League football.
This goal could give Abraham the confidence he’s been lacking of late. The player was a golden boot contender earlier this season and while he probably won’t catch up to the likes of Jamie Vardy, he is certainly capable of adding to his current total of 14 goals.
