Chelsea faces Sheffield United on Saturday, November 7th at Stamford Bridge for an English Premier League match.
Chelsea is coming off a 3-0 win over Stade Rennes in UEFA Champions League action on November 4th. Chelsea will only have two full days of rest before this match against Sheffield United, which is something to think about. Chelsea's last Premier League match was played on October 31st against Burnley, and in that match, Chelsea was victorious by a final score of 3-0. Chelsea is now 3-3-1 on the year, which puts Chelsea in 7th place in the Premier League standings. Chelsea has scored 16 goals and has conceded nine goals to its opposition, therefore the team has a +7 goal differential so far this season.
Sheffield United has had a miserable start to the season, to say the least. Sheffield United is 0-1-6 to start the season, making Sheffield United one of three clubs that have not yet won a match in the Premier League yet this season. Sheffield United's last match was against Manchester City at home. Sheffield United was able to at least compete in the match, only losing by the final score of 1-0. However, it has gotten to the point where Sheffield United needs more than just a decent performance. Sheffield United is in 19th place in the Premier League table, only ahead of another winless club in Burnley. Sheffield United has only scored three measly goals this season but has conceded 10 goals to its opposition (giving Sheffield United a -7 goal differential).
The last time Chelsea and Sheffield United met was on July 11th of 2020. In that match, Sheffield United stunned Chelsea with a 3-0 win at home.
Sheffield United may have beaten Chelsea badly in its last meeting, but I do not see Sheffield United having a chance in this one at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea is starting to heat up, while Sheffield United is doing the complete opposite. I will take Chelsea against the spread here and lay the 1.5 goals with the home team.
