Today’s Play Predictor guest, Matchday Live presenter Abbie McCarthy, is predicting a repeat performance from Hakim Ziyech following his Premier League debut.
This season Blues fans can compete with our guests and each other while testing their knowledge in our Play Predictor game on The 5th Stand app. The game is available to play for every Chelsea fixture, including domestic and European cup matches, and there’s the chance to win incredible prizes throughout the season.
The latest Play Predictor guest to share their predictions for Saturday’s match is the host of Chelsea’s Matchday Live show and BBC Radio 1 presenter Abbie McCarthy. We host Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge late tomorrow afternoon and she is expecting more of the same from the Blues as our impressive form continues.
In addition to predicting that we will keep a sixth consecutive clean sheet while triumphing 3-0 for the third game in a row against the Blades, following wins over Burnley and Rennes, she thinks Hakim Ziyech will star for Chelsea again.
The Moroccan international shone on his full Premier League debut against the Clarets last weekend when he scored the opening goal at Turf Moor before providing the assist for Timo Werner to complete the 3-0 win. Abbie is expecting more of the same at the Bridge tomorrow, as she has backed Ziyech as our first goalscorer against Sheffield United.
You can see the rest of Abbie's predictions below…
Final score: 3-0 to Chelsea
First goalscorer: Hakim Ziyech
Time of first goal: 12 minutes
Number of Chelsea shots: 12
Number of Chelsea shots on target: Six
Number of Chelsea corners: Eight
Chelsea possession: 65 per cent
