Chelsea prepare to take on Sheffield United with all eyes fixated on the top four after seeing boosts from Tottenham crush during the previous fixture
Chelsea go head to head with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United as the Blues hope to go Tuchel’s 4th game without conceding a goal.
A win tonight will see Chelsea 1 point behind the top 4 after they trashed out Jose Mourinho’s Spurs during the weekdays.
Sheffield United are in a bad form with the side crumbling to the last place as relegation looks more likely.
But this doesn’t erase how much of a threat they can be following their 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
The Blades are aware that going without wins will see them back at the Championship which they do not wish for.
It definitely would be a tie worthy to grace as Thomas Tuchel set to line up his men in way he believes would exploit Sheffield United’s weaknesses.
With the official line up yet to be revealed, we look at how the side could likely line up with Thiago Silva being a major doubt for the game today.
Christensen is favorite to start at the defense today alongside Antonio Rudiger as Kurt Zouma is reported injured and yet to recover.
N’golo Kante is likely to make the starting line up today as a Defensive Midfielder while Jorginho and Mason Mount help out in the center.
Hudson-Odoi is a most favorite in the squad after having stared in two roles the German has featured him in the 3 games they have gone.
Tammy Abraham heads attack with Werner going flank against Sheffield United.
Chelsea predicted line-up (3-2-4-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Jorginho, Kante; James, Mount, Werner, Alonso; Abraham
Venue: Bramall Lane
Time: 7:15pm GMT
