Chelsea hosts Sheffield United in the English FA Cup quarterfinals. The match will be played on Sunday, March 21st at Stamford Bridge (London).
Thomas Tuchel managed to transform the game of Chelsea and added stability and pragmatism to his players on the football field. Thanks to the improvement in game performance, the London club has already burst into the top four of the Premier League standings and showed good results in the Champions League. The FA Cup for Chelsea is an important tournament because now the team is hungry for trophies. Under Tuchel's management, such players as Christensen, Alonso, Giroud, and Werner began to progress. Havertz, Ziyech, and Thiago Silva are still not in optimal shape. Nevertheless, Chelsea is well-staffed, and the coaching staff have good opportunities for rotation.
Against the backdrop of a successful last season, Sheffield United completely failed in the Premier League, where it occupies the last line in the standings. The FA Cup is a real outlet for the team, but the Blades hardly have great chances of successful completion of the tournament. The team is weak defensively, and the attacking line looks toothless throughout the season. Moreover, Sheffield has failed in the transfer market. Brewster, Burke, and Ramsdale, who failed to qualitatively replace Henderson between the pipes, absolutely did not justify the hopes placed on them. Beyond that, the team regularly suffers from tactical miscalculations.
The London club has made good progress and continues to dominate over its rivals in every match. If necessary, Tuchel's charges can play extremely pragmatically with reliable defensive actions. Sheffield United is far from such flattering characteristics. The Blades continue to fall in the championship and show a low level of organization of the game. We think the hosts will manage to win with a difference of more than one goal.
