Sheffield United is welcoming Chelsea to Bramall Lane in round 23 in the English Premier League.
Sheffield is at the bottom of the table, and they still have a long way to go, but they have 5 wins in their last 7 games, which is a good sign. Three of those 5 wins were in the EPL, but Sheffield has only 11 points, and they are massive 12 points away from safety. In the attacking end, Sheffield is sharing the last spot with Burnley with only 14 scored goals, while they conceded 35 goals so far. In their last EPL game, Sheffield was hosting WBA, and they were the dominant team with a massive 68% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 83% of the correct passes. After losing at halftime, Sheffield was determined in the second half, and they were able to turn the game around with 2 goals. Sheffield has won this match 2-1. McGoldrick has scored 5 goals for Sheffield so far, while Sharp added 3 goals. O’Connell, Berge, Robinson, Osborn, Stevens, and Baldock are all injured for Sheffield at this time. As I’ve mentioned earlier, Sheffield still has a long way to go, and I’m sorry to say, I don’t think they will escape the relegation this season.
Looks like Tuchel has had a positive impact on Chelsea’s players, and Chelsea’s game after getting on board a few weeks ago. Chelsea has since won 2 games while tying one game, and they haven’t conceded a single goal. With this run, Chelsea is getting back in the Champions League run, and they are now in 7th place with 36 points, 36 scored goals, and 23 conceded goals in 22 games. Abraham is Chelsea’s leading goalscorer with 6 goals, while Jorginho, Zouma, and Werner added 4 goals each. Chilwell and Werner have each added 4 assists. Silva is injured, which is a huge blow for Chelsea’s defense, while Havertz and Zouma are still questionable for this game. Chelsea was playing a tough game against Tottenham last weekend, and they were the better team with 58% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 89% of the correct passes. With a goal from the penalty spot in the 24th minute, Chelsea has deservedly won this game 0-1. Even though it has been only a few weeks with the new head coach, Chelsea looks good, and they look more mature than before, and that is good because they are facing the best team in Spain in the Champions League, Atletico Madrid.
Sheffield is a terrible team this season, and even though they have had some great results lately, I still think they are terrible. Chelsea is on fire, and I will take them any day of the weak.
