Sheffield United (WDWLL) and Chelsea (WWLWW) will meet on Saturday, July 11th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 12:30 PM EST start time and it will be played at Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United is coming off a bit of an upset victory over Wolverhampton in its last match. Although Sheffield United was the home team, Wolverhampton was still the favorite to win the match. The match looked like it was going to be scoreless as a draw, but in the 90+3 minute, things changed. John Egan's header in stoppage time earned Sheffield United the game-winning goal in unbelievable fashion. Sheffield United earned three points in the 1-0 win to move only one point behind Wolverhampton for sixth place in the English Premier League standings. Sheffield United will remain home for this match, as it takes on an even tougher team in Chelsea.
Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace in an offensive explosion of a game. Crystal Palace has scored the second least amount of goals in the Premier League next to Norwich City, therefore it was definitely a strange sight to see Palace score two goals against the Blues of Chelsea. Chelsea was up for the challenge, as the club scored three goals of its own to win the match 3-2. Chelsea owned a lead for virtually the entire match, as Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the 6th minute for Chelsea. Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham added goals for Chelsea, while Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke scored for Crystal Palace.
The last time Sheffield United and Chelsea met was on August 31st of 2019, in which the two clubs drew in a 2-2 match at Chelsea.
Chelsea is the pretty heavy favorites in this match with a -170 price on the three-way Money Line. Chelsea should be able to pull out the victory in this match, but it will not be easy. If Chelsea plays defensively the way it did against Crystal Palace, Sheffield United will score more than two goals. I am going to take over 2.5 goals in this match, as the total seems a bit light, and it is at +100 odds so the value is certainly there.
