Chelsea faces Sheffield United at the Stamford Bridge in a match from the 17th round of the English Premier League. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in these free football tips for today.
For Chelsea the situation remains not good. The Blues suffered three losses in their last four matches in the league. This is leaving the club on 12th place in the standings with 19 points – 14 points behind Manchester City and the Top 4. According to the rumours, Mauricio Pochettino could be sacked really soon if the don’t improve the team’s performances.
Last weekend Chelsea lost for a 7th time this season. The Londoners paid a visit to Everton, but the game ended with a 2-0 win for the hosts. Once again Pochettino’s tactics didn’t work and this led to defeat.
Now the Argentine manager must decide what to do with his line-up on Saturday. Thiago Silva could return in defense while Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling could start as well. The team’s attack didn’t do well against Everton so Jackson and Sterling could be important addition to the line-up.
Reece James is once again injured. The right-back played just 27 minutes at the Goodison Park before being replaced by Levi Colwill. James will be absent for a few months.
Sheffield United are at the bottom of the Premier League with only 8 points won so far. The Blades are 4 points behind the 17th Everton and the safe zone. Things are not looking great for them neither.
In their last match Sheffield at least achieved their second win for the season. Chris Wilder’s team got the win with a goal from James McAtee in the 46th minute.
