Missing Players and team news:
Thiago Silva won’t return until after the international break but Thomas Tuchel hopes Tammy Abraham will return to the matchday squad on Sunday. Jorginho and Mason Mount both missed their midweek win over Atletico Madrid through suspension and will likely start here. Andreas Christensen is a doubt through illness for the home side. He will likely start against Sheffield United if fit enough. Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic and Kepa Arrizabalaga should get rare starts for Chelsea on Sunday. Paul Heckingbottom lost 5-0 to Leicester in his first match in charge of Sheffield United since Chris Wilder’s departure and will no doubt make changes to the side here. Phil Jagielka is unlikely to feature after the tragic passing of his brother in midweek, while Ethan Ampadu is unable to face his parent club this weekend. Enda Stevens or George Baldock will have to move inside to centre-back if Heckingbottom persists with a back three here.
