Sheffield United vs Chelsea Betting Tips

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.

Both teams can’t afford to drop points as they look to achieve their respective goals with only four Premier League games remaining this season.

World Sportsbook Competition are inviting fans to answer 11 questions on this game for the chance to climb their leaderboard and win £500. The top 10% of players will be awarded free entry into the World Sportsbook Championship with up to £100 million set to be offered in prizes.

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.

    David McGoldrick double helps Blades put Chelsea to the sword

    David McGoldrick struck twice as Sheffield United secured their most impressive win of the season with a fully-deserved 3-0 defeat of Chelsea.

    McGoldrick scored his first Premier League goal and pounced again to seal a stunning victory in the second period after Oli McBurnie’s fine header had given the Blades a 2-0 half-time lead.

    This season keeps getting better for Chris Wilder’s side, who climbed up to sixth place, four points behind Manchester United, to give their Europa League hopes another big boost.

    The manner of the Blades’ victory was even more impressive considering Chelsea had recently moved up to third spot in pursuit of a Champions League berth after winning five of their previous six league matches.

    The Blues, roundly beaten in their first match at Bramall Lane in nearly 14 years, could slip out of the top four on Monday if both Leicester and Manchester United win their game in hand.

    Chelsea began well. Christian Pulisic just failed to keep his header on target from Reece James’ excellent cross and the visitors looked menacing going forward.

    But the Londoners have not been as impressive when defending in recent weeks and the Blades exposed that soft underbelly when taking the lead in the 18th minute.

    McBurnie was picked out at the back post by George Baldock’s cross and, although the striker’s deflected shot was blocked by Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, McGoldrick turned home the rebound for his first league goal in over a year.

    Chelsea’s slick passing in the final third was often easy on the eye, but it met with stonewall resistance before the Blades doubled their lead with a superb goal in the 33rd minute.

    Enda Stevens was sent clear down the left after playing a one-two with Ben Osborn and the wing-back’s pin-point cross was headed home by McBurnie into the top corner.

    Chelsea responded through James’ thumping shot from outside the area, but home goalkeeper Dean Henderson was equal to it and the Blades held firm until half-time.

    Lampard replaced Mason Mount and Andreas Christensen with Marcos Alonso and Toni Rudiger during the interval.

    Chelsea continued to probe, but there was no way through and, after more good work from McGoldrick and McBurnie, Chris Basham’s curling cross from the right almost found Osborn.

    Chelsea mounted some concerted pressure, but found every avenue on the edge of the Blades’ area blocked.

    Olivier Giroud was sent on for Pulisic in the 65th minute and within moments volleyed just wide following a long ball over the top.

    Cesar Azpilicueta’s vicious drive was deflected wide and Tammy Abraham fired off target from the resulting corner.

    But the Blades cut loose again in the 76th minute. McGoldrick burst forward and sent substitute Lys Mousset down the right and, when Rudiger made a hash of his attempted clearance, McGoldrick pounced to kill the game off.

    The Blades could have had another in the closing stages, but Stevens blazed over the bar following more slick build-up from the South Yorkshire side.
