Sheffield United showed teeth!
Sheffield is probably a little late, but they are still showing some signs of progress. There is no other way, since their only 3 victories in the Premier League so far have been recorded in their last 5 matches.
And yes, the one over Man United, although loud, still leaves some doubts about a dose of underestimation by the Red Devils. Or at least for their very weak game.
But the victory over Newcastle and the victory over West Bromwich were not only deserved, but also against direct opponents in the struggle for survival.
There were no arguments in the visit of Man City. But there is also that in football, when one match is written off for a more important next one. Anyway, in the end, now Sheffield United enters this match with increased self-confidence.
And most importantly, what is in the last few meetings, otherwise the weakest attack in the Premier League, has already begun to score. Notice. In their last 5 games, Sheffield have scored 6 or almost half of their 14 goals of the season.
Chelsea stabilizes at Tuhel!
The news for Chelsea is, of course, that they have a new and more experienced coach. Under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel, the Blues have already played 3 matches. And new trends are emerging.
Another fan of defensive football debuted with 3 dry nets and 2 wins. Huge mastery of the initiative or the so-called. positional football in its defensive version.
The idea is clear. The best defense is when the opponent has no opportunities to attack.
Prediction for Sheffield – Chelsea
In my opinion, for this match it is quite possible to expect some resemblance to Chelsea’s victory over Tottenham. But with a slight nuance. This series becomes a bit long without a goal for the Blues. Probably Tuhel has not yet clarified his choice in defense.
We also add the improvements in Sheffield United’s attack. They have nothing to lose anyway. And they can only win. And with a lag in the result is very likely to score.
I liked this choice for the match. Although there are other quite probable events in it. Such as a huge advantage in possession for Chelsea. As well as a large number of corners for them.
Very likely hit for the Blues from a static position. And a probable goal-scoring defender. The reason is that Sheffield have conceded 10 goals from static positions. And this will certainly be used by guests.
All these events that I have listed are very likely in this meeting. And I say this in terms of choosing a value bet . The small big problem turned out to be that some of them are not offered as bets.
And others are on well-prepared odds by the bookmaker. That is, they do not have the required value.
I am left with only the choice of goals then for both teams. And notice, I’m not calling for Chelsea to win at all. They are still one of the most unpredictable teams. And just at this moment they can allow any surprise for a number of reasons.
We only play for goals.
