TIME: 19:15 UTC
VENUE: Bramall Lane, Sheffield, England
They are likely to be without Thiago Silva for this evening’s game – the Brazilian injured his thigh during the first half against Spurs – while Kurt Zouma and Kai Havertz are also doubts having picked up knocks in training this week. Given the quick turnaround, Tuchel may opt to rotate his side, although his 3-4-2-1 system is almost certainly to be deployed once more. This evening’s game kicks off at 7.15pm UK time and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. We will have everything covered, however. Team news, Tuchel’s pre-game thoughts, live match updates, and much more will all be below over the next few hours.
The Blades have endured a miserable campaign but have found some semblance of form in recent weeks, winning three of their last five Premier League fixtures. So this match won’t be a given for Chelsea despite improved performances under Tuchel. The German has overseen a draw and two victories since replacing Frank Lampard and the Blues are very much back in the hunt for a place in the top four.
Chelsea will be looking to maintain their impressive start to life under Thomas Tuchel when they take on Premier League basement boys Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The Blues beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Thursday to keep their momentum going, while the Blades have also found some form over the past few weeks.
Tuchel makes a handful of changes following their victory over Tottenham.
Giroud is the man of the moment upfront and starts alongside Werner, Hudson-Odoi drops to the bench.
Christensen replaced Silva when the Brazilian limped off in their last fixture, with Chilwell returning to the line-up.
There’s no Havertz on Pulisic today.
There are four changes for Sheffield United with McBurnie and Burke forming the front two; Bryan and Lowe coming in on the left.
Osborn is back, but starts on the bench.
