Chelsea vs Sheffield confirmed team news and Lineup for both teams predicted

All attention is focused on the English Premier League after a good performance from Chelsea in their UEFA champions League against Rennes from France.

Chelsea host Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening with the away side still on the hunt for their first Premier League win of the season.

The Blades sit way down in 19th in the table, ahead of basement side Burnley by goal difference alone, and only a victory over in-form Chelsea will give them any chance of moving out of the bottom three this weekend.

On the other hand, Chelsea have closed the gap on the top four to just a solitary point and will have high hopes of occupying one of the Champions League spots come the end of the round, with their sights firmly set on trying to force their way into the Premier League title picture.

With Timo Werner up and running with four goals in his last three outings and a wealth of attacking options at his disposal, scoring has not been an issue for the Blues as of late.

One negative for Frank Lampard’s side though is that Chelsea will be missing two key players in their attack, with Kai Havertz forced to self-isolate after testing positive for Covid-19 while Christian Pulisic remains absent through injury after suffering a setback in the warm-up for last weekend’s win over Burnley.
