Chelsea vs Sheffield United odds
*Odds correct as of 14:15 on December 14
It’s not been a good season for Mauricio Pochettino so far, with Chelsea back in the bottom half of the table. The Blues have won just five of their 16 Premier League games with seven defeats, including successive losses against Manchester United and Everton going into this game. This run comes off the back of Chelsea going unbeaten against Tottenham, Arsenal and Man City, albeit with one win and two draws. Chelsea also have the joint-worst record of all 17 teams to have been ever-present in the Premier League in 2023, earning just 39 points and winning nine games.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, are bottom of the table but handing themselves a little boost in their relegation fight last time out. The Blades have won just twice in the league this season, with the second victory coming against Brentford last weekend. It means Chris Wilder’s men
are now just one point behind 18th-placed Luton, though still five off safety going into this weekend.
