Sheffield United vs Chelsea is the highlight of Saturday’s Premier League matches. The Blades moved back up to seventh spot in the table after beating Wolves and are now just one point behind them in their quest to be playing in next season’s Europa League.
Chelsea also have playing European football next season on their minds, and they could still the maximum 12 points from their final four games to make sure they qualify for the Champions League rather than the Europa League. I’m not convinced that Chelsea deserve to be as short at 1/2 to beat Sheffield United but I do think there should be plenty of goals. That why our tip for Sheffield United vs Chelsea is more than 2.5 goals at a touch of odds-on.
Chelsea’s matches since lockdown have all been entertaining, with all five of their Premier League games producing between three and five goals. Indeed, Chelsea’s last eight Premier League games have all produced more than 2.5 goals. Chelsea have won four of their five post-lockdown matches but only Watford have failed to score against them in defeat.
Sheffield United failed to score in their first three games back after the Premier League suspension but have found their scoring boots to beat Tottenham and Wolves and secure a score-draw with Burnley. That means, with Chelsea willing to push men forward, the Blades should find some room to exploit now they’re up and running. Four of Sheffield United’s last six games have also produced more than 2.5 goals.
The two teams also fought out a spirited 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season when three goals had been scored by the 46th minute. That all suggests that over 2.5 goals is the best tip for Sheffield United vs Chelsea.
