Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Sheffield United and Chelsea, Mark Lawrenson has predicted a draw.

Lawrenson told BBC: “What a great result Sheffield United got at home to Wolves on Wednesday, thanks to John Egan’s last-gasp winner.

“The Blades have certainly responded in the past few days when it looked like they might start to fall away – and it shows just how well Chris Wilder runs that team.

“He has had so many of those players for so long, he knows exactly what they are capable of and he also knows how to get the best out of them. They know he knows that too, which is just as important.

“Chelsea’s performance against Crystal Palace on Tuesday sort of summed them up for me at the moment – they were good going forward, and they were very average at the back.

“That is just the way Frank Lampard’s side are right now. As dangerous as they look in attack, you can get at them too.”

Lawro’s prediction: 1-1
