Head to Head

Chelsea ran out 4-1 winners at home over the Blades in their first clash this season.

Sheffield United Form


Sheffield United are improving, but they are still rock bottom of the Premier League.

Chris Wilder’s charges have won five of their last seven matches, including a 2-1 success at home over Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup. 

The Blades met Manchester United at Old Trafford and came away with a huge 2-1 victory. Kean Bryan and Oliver Burke both found the back of the net to cause the upset.

Sheffield United went down 1-0 at Man City before returning home with a 2-1 success over fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albions. Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp both scored to overturn a 1-0 half-time deficit.

Sheffield United Injuries & Team News


Sheffield United are still missing injured centre backs Jack O'Connell and Jack Robinson. That’s a big problem with Ethan Ampadu unable to face parent club Chelsea.

Left back Enda Stevens is out injured alongside midfielders Sander Berge and Ben Osborn. Right back George Baldock was forced off injured against West Brom and is a major doubt.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea eased to a 3-1 home win over Luton Town in the FA Cup. Tammy Abraham grabbed a hat-trick. The match would be boss Frank Lampard's last in charge, with Thomas Tuchel replacing him at the helm.

Tuchel’s first game in charge was a drab 0-0 stalemate with Wolves at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea bossed the fixture with 79% possession, but just couldn’t find a way to score.

The Blues then brushed Burnley aside at home, running out 2-0 victors thanks to goals from defenders César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso. They had 71% possession and 19-1 shots.

Chelsea’s last runout was a 1-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur in a London derby. Jorginho scored from the spot to secure the points after Timo Werner was fouled in the box.

Chelsea Team News & Injuries


Centre back Thiago Silva injured his hamstring against Tottenham with Andreas Christensen set to start. 

Central defender Kurt Zouma is doubtful alongside attacking midfielder Kai Havertz.

Midfielder N’Golo Kante came off the bench against Tottenham as he works his way back from injury.

Tuchel could bring Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham back into the starting side here.
