Sheffield United v Chelsea Live Commentary & Result, 07/02/2021, Premier League

Chris Wilder makes four changes to the team that lost to Manchester City last time out as he brings in Bryan, Lowe, McBurnie and Burke. McGoldrick and Sharp drop to the bench, while George Baldock is missing with a hamstring injury and Ethan Ampadu is ineligible to start against his parent club.

CHELSEA SUBS: Marcos Alonso, Tammy Abraham, Hakim Ziyech, Callum Hudson-Odoi, N’Golo Kante, Billy Gilmour, Kurt Zouma, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Emerson.

CHELSEA STARTING XI (3-4-1-2): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ben Chilwell; Mason Mount; Olivier Giroud, Timo Werner.

SHEFFIELD UNITED STARTING XI (3-5-2): Aaron Ramsdale; Chris Basham, John Egan, Kean Bryan; Jayden Bogle, John Lundstram, Oliver Norwood, John Fleck, Max Lowe; Oliver Burke, Oliver McBurnie.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their three matches under new manager Thomas Tuchel, winning the last two after drawing his first game in charge, and have kept a clean sheet in all three of those outings. They face United, who have won five of their last seven games in all competitions after their poor start to the season. They’ve won their last two at home and have a  chance to move off the bottom of the table if they avoid defeat today.
