Harry Redknapp believes Chelsea FC will have too much quality for Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues recorded their first Premier League victory under Frank Lampard last weekend thanks a 3-2 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount both got on the score-sheet in the first half before striker Abraham netted a 68th-minute winner.

Sheffield United have collected four points from their opening three games to leave the Blades in ninth position in the table.

The promoted side beat Crystal Palace to record their first top-flight win since their return to the Premier League before a 2-1 loss to Leicester last weekend.

“Fellow Londoners Chelsea are also at home and face another promoted outfit in Sheffield United. Tammy Abraham bagged a brace at Carrow Road and will be eyeing more success against the Blades,” Redknapp told BetVictor.

“Sheffield United have picked up four points from their opening three matches and a 2-1 win over Blackburn keeps their League Cup hopes on track.

“A trip to Stamford Bridge represents a step up in class, however, and I feel the Pensioners will have too much quality and start climbing the table with victory here.”

Chelsea FC appointed Lampard as their new manager after Maurizio Sarri left the west London side to take over the reins at Serie A champions Juventus in the summer.

The Blues finished in third spot in the Premier League table last season to secure their return to the Champions League.

Chelsea FC were crowned Europa League winners thanks to a 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Baku showpiece.

The Blues will have to get past Lille, Valencia and Ajax to reach the round of 16.
