Sheffield United and Chelsea go toe-to-toe in the Premier League at Bramall Lane on Saturday with both sides harbouring European ambitions.

The Blades got their hopes of a Europa League finish firmly back on track with a late John Egan header securing victory over Wolves last time out, moving them to 7th in the Premier League table.

Wolves’ loss was not only Sheffield United’s gain, but Chelsea’s too, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side now seemingly out of the race for a Champions League place.

Top four is Chelsea’s ambition, and with a 2-3 win against Crystal Palace last time out, the Blues leapfrogged Leicester in to 3rd.

However, Frank Lampard knows that his side are vulnerable, particularly with Manchester United in such fine form and hot on their heels.

Jorginho is likely to start in midfield for Chelsea, with teenage sensation Billy Gilmour expected to miss out with a foot injury.

Midfield is likely to be the region where changes are made by Lampard, with both Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante, who both have knocks, rated 50-50 for the game with the Blades.

Chris Wilder won’t have striker Oli McBurnie at his disposal against Chelsea, with the Scotland striker substituted in the win over Wolves with an apparent injury – Lys Mousset is expected to replace him.

Sheffield United v Chelsea is a 5.30pm kick off on Saturday, July 11.
