Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Sheffield United


Frank Lampard leads Chelsea FC into their final match before the first set of internationals badly in need of a victory. It’s match day four and the Blues are still in search of their first victory in front of the home folks this season. Luckily, they are heavily tipped to do so against newly promoted Sheffield United on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s men head into this match looking up at their opposition in the table, but only on goal differential tie-breaker. Both the Blues and Blades have a draw, a win and a loss on the young season, but Manchester United’s battering of Chelsea on opening day has their season goal differential in a bad place right now, and they enter this game 13th in the league while Sheffield are 9th.

That said, let’s take a look at what kind of lineup Lampard might field has he looks to get another win, and cool his seat off a bit.
