Match Preview

After their first Premier League (PL) win under new manager Frank Lampard, Chelsea face newly-promoted opposition for the second match in succession. The ‘Blues’ are massive favourites here, and have curiously seen three of their last four PL home wins over newcomers yield precisely a two-goal margin.
At present, Chelsea are unbeaten in ten home league outings (W6, D4), and by extension, each of Chelsea’s last eight PL home wins have seen them win the second half ‘to-nil’. Within that group, three of Chelsea’s last five PL home victories have involved them winning both halves.
Sheffield United finally tasted their first defeat of 2019/20 after a spirited display against Leicester (Aug 24). In turn, each of their three PL fixtures this term have yielded a final margin of under 1.5 goals between the sides.
The ‘Blades’ lost both H2Hs in their last full PL campaign (2006/07), losing each half ‘to-nil’ (5-0 aggregate). However, hopes of improving on this are fuelled by the fact that Sheffield United have equalised on two of the three occasions they have gone behind in the PL this season.
Players to watch: After a tough month, Tammy Abraham poached the first and last goals in Chelsea’s last win, opening the scoring inside the first five minutes.
Oliver McBurnie’s second-half equaliser for United vs Leicester (Aug 24) got him off the mark for 2019/20. Nine of his last 12 league match goals (across all leagues) have arrived beyond the hour mark.
Stat attack: Four of Chelsea’s last five PL home games against newly-promoted sides have seen exactly two match goals.
Chelsea have not lost at home to a newly-promoted PL side in the league since December 2015.
Five of the (total) six goals scored across Sheffield United’s PL matches this term have come in the second half.
