Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge, Mark Lawrenson has backed the Blues to beat Sheffield United.
“Sheffield United just can’t score goals. Since beating Chelsea 3-0 in July, they have only managed four in 10 league games – and two of those were penalties,” Lawrenson told BBC.
“They have picked up only one point in that spell when their performances haven’t actually been that bad – so it is obvious where their problems lie.
“In contrast, Chelsea have scored 10 goals in their past three games and have not conceded in any of their past five. That is all very impressive, but I am still not wholly convinced.
“They should win on Saturday, but I am waiting for them to crack again.”
Lawrenson’s prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Sheffield United.
