Chelsea vs Sheffield United Predictions

Sheffield United are one of only two teams to score against Chelsea in the Blues' last 13 matches. But I don't expect a repeat with Chelsea cruising through in the FA Cup with a seventh straight clean sheet.

  • Chelsea are undefeated in their last 14 matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 13 matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have won their last 2 matches against Sheffield United (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have lost 6 of their last 7 matches (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have lost 12 of their last 15 away matches (all competitions).
  • Sheffield United have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have failed to score in 6 of their last 7 away matches (Premier League). 

Head to Head

Chelsea have a 40-28 advantage against Sheffield United with 16 draws in 83 matches.

The sides have met twice already this season in the Premier League. Chelsea won 4-1 at home and were 2-1 winners at Bramall Lane last month.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea maintained their unbeaten record under Thomas Tuchel when progressing to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in midweek.

A 2-0 win at home to Atletico Madrid, courtesy of goals from Hakim Ziyech and Emerson, completed a 3-0 aggregate win for the Blues.

It was a sixth clean sheet in a row for Chelsea and an 11th in the last 13 matches.

Chelsea have conceded just two goals in that time and have been reeling off wins with efficiency. They have not scored more than two goals in a game under Tuchel.

Chelsea have overcome Morecambe 4-0, Luton 3-1 in Frank Lampard's final game in charge and Barnsley 1-0 to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Chelsea Team News

Chelsea are still without centre-back Thiago Silva, while Andreas Christensen is also a doubt after missing the Champions League win in midweek.

Tammy Abraham is on the road to a comeback, but may not be rushed back for this game.

Jorginho and Mason Mount both missed the Champions League win through suspension and are likely to start along with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Sheffield United Form

Having seen Chris Wilder depart his position at Bramall Lane, Sheffield United failed to benefit from the new manager bounce last weekend as they lost 5-0 at Leicester.

Paul Heckingbottom took charge of the Blades, but he was unable to prevent a 23rd defeat in 29 Premier League games.

Sheffield United have lost six of their last seven matches and sit bottom of the table, 14 points from safety.

The FA Cup has been something of a respite for the Blades. They reached this stage after beating Bristol Rovers 3-2, Plymouth 2-1 and Bristol City 1-0.

Sheffield United Team News

Sheffield United's defensive problems deepen with on loan Ethan Ampadu ineligible to face parent club Chelsea.

Defenders Chris Basham, John Egan, Jack O’Connell and Jack Robinson are all out, while Phil Jagielka is unlikely to play on compassionate grounds.

Midfielders Sander Berge and Jack Rodwell are also absent.
