Chelsea have now recorded three consecutive wins and have lost just once in their last ten games in all competitions.

Frank Lampard’s side are starting to click and suddenly he has a number of strong options at his disposal.

Victory on Saturday could lift the Blues as high as second in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s miserable start to the season continued last weekend as they were beaten by Manchester City.

Chris Wilder’s side have secured just one point from their first six games.

Chelsea vs Sheffield United: Recommended bets

Hakim Ziyech to score first. The Moroccan midfielder looks to have finally arrived at Chelsea following a strong display against Burnley.

Ziyech produced an exciting performance at Turf Moor which he capped off with a goal and an assist.

Ziyech will now be hoping to carry his form into Saturday and is 6/1 to open the scoring against Sheffield United.

Chelsea vs Sheffield United: Match preview

Chelsea are starting to put together a strong run of results which has seen them go seven games without a defeat and three wins on the bounce.

Their last three outings have seen them collect three wins, scoring ten goals and keeping three clean sheets.

Last weekend, the Blues travelled to Turf Moor and eased through proceedings by comfortably seeing off Burnley 3-0.

Three of their new additions, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Edouard Mendy, have particularly begun to impress.

Ziyech ran the show against Burnley, whilst Werner has netted four goals in his last three appearances.

Meanwhile, Mendy has brought reassurance to Chelsea’s back-line, which has seen them keep five consecutive clean sheets.

Sheffield United take one point from first six games

Following last season’s incredible 9th place finish, Sheffield United have so far been a shadow of that impressive side.

The Blades have taken just one point from their opening six fixtures which means they are 19th.

Although, it is worth noting United have already faced the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Chris Wilder will also feel his side have been unfortunate with some results and several of their performances have deserved better results.

On Saturday, their horrible fixture list continues as they face an in-form Chelsea side where they will need to start turning solid performances into results.
