Chelsea- Sheffield

Asian Handicap
Pick: Chelsea -1.5
Odds: 1.73
Stake: 1

Match date: 21/03/2021

In this quarter final FA Cup match between Chelsea and Sheffield I will back Chelsea to cover the handicap. The reasons are quite clear I suppose. 

Two teams going in different directions and coming to this match in totally different form and mood. 

The hosts since Tuchel took charge have become a beast especially defensively. They are on an 13 match unbeaten run registering nine wins and four draws, but the most exceptional fact is that in those 13 matches they have conceded just two goals. 

Under Tuchel they have managed to break through to top four in the league, they also reached quite easily the quarter finals of Champions League eliminating a seasoned team like Atletico and now they have the possibility to reach the semi finals of the FA Cup. 

I believe that the FA Cup is the most realistic possibility for Chelsea to win a trophy this season and I believe the club knows that so today I expect a serious approach by Chelsea. 

On the other hand we have Sheffield Utd who are the total opposite of Chelsea. They are rock bottom in the league and already relegated long time ago. This season they have been one of the worst performing teams in the history of Premier League. 

You might think how such a bad team has reached the quarter finals of FA Cup, but they had a really easy opponents until now. They faced League One teams of Bristol Rovers and Plymouth and Championship Bristol City. In all those matches they won by a single goal. So really no big opponents and today will be the end of the road for them. 

For this match Chelsea with full team except long time injured Thiago Silva and Abraham. For today’s match Chelsea is expected to make some changes from the last match against Atletico. Mason Mount and Jorginho will start for sure after they skipped Atletico’s match because they were suspended. Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud and Kepa are also expected to start today. 

On the other hand Sheffield beside the already injured players like Egan, Robinson, O’Connell and Rodwell  will also miss Ethan Ampadu who is on loan from Chelsea and is not allowed to play. 

So taking in consideration all the above mentioned arguments I believe that Chelsea has really good chances to win this match and cover the handicap.
