During their Saturday afternoon visit to Stamford Bridge, Sheffield United will visit Chelsea while both attempting to climb the Premier League standings.

The game will be live on K24 EPL Maskani show this Saturday.

After 16 games played, the Blues are currently 12th in the standings, having won just 5 of their league games this year.

Although the Blades defeated Brentford in their most recent game, they are still 11 point.s behind Chelsea and at the bottom of the table.

Chelsea enters the match on Saturday fresh off a 2-0 loss to Everton, who had just 27% of the possession while Mauricio Pochettino's team attempted 16 shots.

After winning just once in their previous five Premier League games, the Blues have now lost three of their last four games.

Even worse for Chelsea, their struggles at home are highlighted by the fact that they have only won two of their previous fifteen league games at Stamford Bridge.

All things considered, Pochettino's team has averaged 2.2 goals per game at home over the past five games, scoring more than 1.5 goals in four of those games.

In contrast, James McAtee's spectacular long-range goal helped Sheffield United defeat Brentford 1-0 last weekend.

Chris Wilder, who took over as manager after his departure, lost his first game back at Bramall Lane 2-0, but he quickly turned things around.

The fact that Sheff United have only won two of their 16 Premier League games this season—two have ended in draws and twelve in losses—cannot be ignored, though.

Not to mention that the Blades have an ugly goal differential of -29 due to having the worst offensive and defensive records in the division.

In their previous three head-to-head encounters, Chelsea has prevailed in all three and scored eight goals.

With six of their previous seven meetings between the two teams ending in goals scored, the Blades have only been able to win one of those meetings in all competitions.

Chelsea's injury list still includes Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell, Trevoh Chalobah, Lesley Ugochukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Reece James.

Several Sheff United players, including Chris Basham, Rhys Norrington-Davis, John Egan, Tom Davies, Rhian Brewster, and George Baldock, are also sidelined with injuries.

Pochettino's team should not have any trouble defeating the bottom team in the league, despite Chelsea's recent struggles, particularly at Stamford Bridge.
