Michael Owen is backing Timo Werner to fire Chelsea FC to a 2-0 victory away to Sheffield United on Sunday night.

The Blues head into the video game fresh from having sealed a 1-0 triumph away to Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night as Thomas Tuchel managed successive success for the first time as Chelsea FC manager.

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

The west London side started the weekend in sixth location in the Premier League table as they bid to enhance on the fourth-placed finish they achieved under Frank Lampard last term.

Werner is yet to rating under new boss Tuchel, but previous Liverpool FC and Manchester United star Owen is backing the German to help fire the Blues to success over the Blades on Sunday.

Composing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “It’s two wins and 3 tidy sheets for Chelsea under brand-new manager Thomas Tuchel.

” The Blues have certainly looked more solid considering that the German has actually arrived, with Thursday’s win at Tottenham testimony to that.

” They travel to the Steel City to handle a resurgent Sheffield United side. The Blades are putting in a late run to get away transfer, although they have actually most likely left it too late.

” United have been outstanding in recent weeks, however, Chelsea are growing in self-confidence and I believe Tuchel might be the man to open the capacity of fellow compatriot Timo Werner.

” I reckon the German might notch here in an away win.”

Chelsea FC are in FA Cup action next week when they handle Barnsley in the fifth round away from home on Thursday night.

The Blues will then host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday 15 February.
