Do You Agree: Michael Owen makes Timo Werner prediction for Sheffield United v Chelsea


Ex-Liverpool forward Micheal Owen is tapping Timo Werner to fire Chelsea to a 2-0 victory against Sheffield United on Sunday evening.

The London club head into the game fresh from having sealed a 1-0 victory away to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night as Thomas Tuchel claimed consecutive victories for the first time as Chelsea boss.

Chelsea will now be looking to string together a positive series of results as they look to climb the Premier League table and get themselves back into contention for top-four spot in the top-flight.

The Blues started the weekend in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to improve on the fourth-placed finish they achieved under Frank Lampard last season.

Werner is yet to score under new boss Tuchel, but Ex-Liverpool and Manchester United star Owen is tapping the German to help fire the Blues to victory over the Blades on Sunday evening.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: ‘It’s two wins and three clean sheets for Chelsea under new boss Thomas Tuchel.

‘The Blues have certainly looked more solid since the German has arrived, with Thursday’s win at Tottenham testament to that.

‘They travel to the Steel City to take on a resurgent Sheffield United side. The Blades are putting in a late run to escape relegation, although they’ve probably left it too late.

‘United have been impressive in recent weeks, however, Chelsea are growing in confidence and I think Tuchel may be the man to unlock the potential of fellow countryman Timo Werner. I reckon the German could notch here in an away win.’

Werner, meanwhile, showed full commitment by scored brilliant header during Chelsea’s final preparations at club training session on Sunday morning.

Thomas Tuchel’s men will return to action next week when they lock horns with Barnsley in the FA Cup fifth round away from home on Thursday night before they host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday 15 February.
