Chelsea host Sheffield United this weekend in the Premier League. The Blades currently sit bottom of the Premier League with Chelsea occupying 12th.

With Pochettino speaking to the press tomorrow, Chris Wilder has been speaking to the media today to preview the game from his perspective. Wilder had plenty of praise for the blues and dismissed claims of Chelsea’s rocky start to the season.

Wilder told the media; “Hopefully they have an inconsistent day.” whilst praising the squad adding it is “packed with talent especially at the top end of the pitch with pace and power.”

Chris Wilder also went onto speak about the stature of the football club he will be up against but did send a warning that they won’t be coming down for a train ride. He said, Chelsea are “an iconic football club that’s had an outstanding 20/25 years…We have to go there with belief and that’s what I talked about it with the players because it’s no good getting on the train tomorrow afternoon if we think we can’t get anything from it.” 

The segment on Chelsea was rounded up by Wilder saying, “The first half of the game is absolutely vital for us. We need a big start”.

It’s clear to see Wilder has already been studying Chelsea’s weakness beyond the first half of matches.
