Our tipster thinks that Frank Lampard's Blues will enjoy a comfortable victory when they play host to Chris Wilder's Blades on Saturday afternoon

Chelsea welcome Sheffield United to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.  

Frank Lampard secured his first competitive victory as Chelsea manager with a thrilling 3-2 win against Norwich City last weekend and will be determined that his side maintains momentum against the Blades in west London.

Chris Wilder's charges have collected four points from their opening three league matches. This trip, though, may well represent United's toughest assignment thus far on their return to the top flight.

The enormity of the task facing the Blades is reflected by bet365's 15/2 (8.50) quote for an away win. Indeed, Wilder's men are available at 4/1 (5.0) to secure a share of the spoils.

Chelsea are chalked up as a 1/3 (1.34) chance to give Lampard his first home win since taking charge at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea vs Sheffield United team news

Chelsea will hope that Antonio Rudiger is fit enough to make his first appearance of the season, having been missed in the heart of the Blues' defence. N'Golo Kante and Mason Mount are expected to shake off injury concerns. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi remain out.

Wilder fielded a much-changed side in Tuesday's Carabao Cup win against Blackburn Rovers but should revert to a more familiar line-up here. John Fleck remains as the only doubt for the visitors.

Chelsea vs Sheffield United preview

Lampard will be concerned that his side have conceded seven goals in their opening three Premier League matches and so there may be some interest in the  9/2 (5.50)  quote on the Blades finding the net more than once against the Blues.

The even money (2.0) quote from bet365 for both teams to score could also prove popular this weekend.

Chelsea vs Sheffield United prediction

Chelsea, though, were clinical in their win at Carrow Road. Lampard's side scored three times and will fancy their chances of getting amongst the goals again here. A similarly strong attacking display here could spell trouble for Wilder's newly-promoted outfit.

Chelsea's quality in the final third could prove pivotal once again this weekend so backing the Blues (-1) at even money (2.0) to beat the handicap mark against the Blades could, therefore, prove profitable.  

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
