Chelsea vs Sheffield United prediction
Following a loss against Everton, it is clear that Chelsea are far behind in the title race. This weekend, they host rock bottom, Sheffield United at the Stamford Bridge in the Round 17 of the English Premier League. For the Blues winning has become a huge task, as they have won just 5 with 7 losses and 4 draws from their opening 16. They currently sit at the 12th position in the League table with 19 points. Despite the big money signings this team remains on the same level it was last season. Although they struggle to get all three points, they are still a side that can offer so much with time.
Since securing promotion into the English top-flight in April 2023, Sheffield United have had it worse in terms of form after recording just 8 points with 2 wins, two draws and a disappointing record of 12 losses. In fact, their first win came against Wolves in November. All these compounded to the sacking of their manager, Paul Heckingbottom who has now been succeeded by Chris Wilder. Following the appointment of this man, it seems they have found their form a little bit after a 1-0 win against Brentford. Though the season looks young, but for the Blades to keep their hopes of staying in the EPL high they’ve got to start fighting now or they might be heading towards relegation again after going down in 2021.
Chelsea go into this match with a strong thirst for a win after failing to record any in their last 2. Although their form has been the one with rough patches but with some unexpected performances against the likes of Spurs and Manchester City, it is clear that the Blues still understand the business of winning and scoring in excess even though they also concede massively. For Sheffield United they will be looking to build on their newly found momentum and put in a good show but do not forget they will be playing the Blues at the Bridge so it would be really hard to get anything from this outing. Hence, Our Chelsea vs Sheffield United Prediction is HT/FT – 1/1 and we recommend the HT/FT market.

Prediction 3: BTTS-NO
Although Chelsea these days have been eating up goals than usual. According to stats they have taken in goals in 5 of their last 6 matches but these have been against top and free scoring sides in the League. With the way things are currently, Chris Wilder’s team are far from being regarded as a side that scores well because in their last 5 they only manged to score 3 goals which amounts to a poor goal-scoring average of 0.60 per match. Going up against a Chelsea team with a defensive powerhouse on home soil further shows the importance of this prediction. The BTTS-No market has a huge odd on Paripesa! Play, and cash out big!
