HT Goal Under 1.5

Sheffield United vs FC Chelsea 11.07.2020

After a slow start to the league resumption, Sheffield appear to have found their feet and have picked up seven points from the last 3 games with impressive home wins over Tottenham and Wolves and a draw away at Burnley. Chelsea have been impressive after the restart winning all but one of the 7 games they have played in all competitions. Both of these teams have European competition ambitions for next season. Chelsea keen to maintain their top 4 status while Sheffield are hoping to give themselves a chance at a top 6 Europa League finish. They will both certainly have their guard up at least to start the game and we are going for First Half Under 1.5 as our prediction for the game
