Sheffield United – Chelsea: Can Sheffield United deliver a fourth win in six matches across all competitions when Thomas Tuchel’s suddenly-stingy Chelsea visits Bramall Lane on Sunday (start time 2:15 pm ET online via Peacock Premium)?
Blades have eliminated the perception that they are headed for the worst season in Premier League history but still have plenty of work to do to escape the drop zone.
Chris Wilder’s men are bottom of the table with 11 points but have loved to within 11 points of safety.
They’ll have to surprise a sixth-place Chelsea side which is unbeaten since Tuchel took the reins at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are yet to allow a goal under the ex-Borussia Dortmund, Mainz, and Paris Saint-Germain boss.

Blades are without four players including top midfielder Sander Berge. Jack O’Connell, Jack Robinson, and George Baldock are out. Enda Stevens and Ben Osborn could be back in the fold.
Thiago Silva misses out while Kai Havertz is also out and Christian Pulisic, too. Kurt Zouma returns to the 18.
4 changes for the Blades. 🔁
