Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge, prediction expert Jones Knows has given his prediction for the games.
He told Sky Sports: “My timeline was not a pretty picture last weekend when the referee blew his whistle at the end of Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Burnley. Blues fans came at me, mostly in good spirits, cupping their ear in my direction after I had made a case for Burnley at 11/2. I will never apologise for having a pop at a price.
“Well, Sheffield United – a team that have played far better than their position in the Premier League table suggests – are even bigger in the market than Burnley this weekend. You can get 7/1 on an away win.
“The case can be made too. The Blades beat Chelsea 3-0 at Bramall Lane last season and dug out a deserved 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
“Have they tempted me in? I would be in line for a bravery award if so.
“Edouard Mendy is going for a seventh straight clean sheet and his relationship with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma in front of him is a trio to fear when it comes to defensive solidity. Chris Wilder’s men are the joint lowest scorers this season in the Premier League with Burnley – netting just three goals, and two of those were penalties.
“The Chelsea bandwagon still does not have me as a passenger but I do fancy them for a low-scoring home win this weekend against the blunt Blades.”
Jones is predicting a 1-0 victory for Chelsea over Sheffield United.
