Chelsea vs Sheffield Utd: Squawka Says
We think Chelsea’s FA Cup pedigree and Sheffield United’s shattered confidence will give Thomas Tuchel’s side a clear edge here. Have your own say and go head-to-head with the Squawka experts and other Karamba punters with Karamba Battle!
Scoreline prediction: Chelsea 4-0 Sheffield United
Chelsea have gathered incredible momentum since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard, winning nine and drawing four of his 13 games in charge so far, conceding just two goals along the way. The Blues have jumped back into the top four and recently advanced into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-0 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid. Can they continue their long-standing love affair with the FA Cup here?
To do so, Sheffield United are the next opponent they’ll have to take down. Chelsea will head into this match as huge favourites, with Blades rooted to the bottom of the Premier League with just 14 points from 29 games, while they’re yet to beat top-flight opposition in the FA Cup so far this season, seeing off Bristol Rovers, Plymouth and Bristol City to reach this stage. Chris Wilder’s men have lost their last two games without scoring a goal, falling 2-0 to Southampton and 5-0 to Leicester City. A win over Chelsea here would undoubtedly go down as one of the shocks of the season.
