The Blues have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the top flight and their 3-0 win over Burnley last weekend catapulted them into seventh place.

Victory here could see Frank Lampard’s men muscle into the top four with eight Premier League fixtures down.

But Sheffield United will hope to put up stiff competition as they seek to avoid what would be a sixth defeat of the campaign already.

The Blades sat second bottom of the table heading into the eighth round of matches and are already lagging behind their rivals in the survival battle.

Chelsea v Sheffield United team news

Chelsea: Billy Gilmour will not be back from a knee injury until after the international break, but Kepa Arrizabalaga should be fit to return to the bench, having lost his place as Chelsea’s No1 goalkeeper.

Christian Pulisic could well make the bench here following a thigh injury.

Sheffield United: Saturday’s game is still too soon for John Fleck to make his comeback from a back injury, while Jack O’Connell and Lys Mousset remain sidelined.

Billy Sharp may get a start here in place of Rhian Brewster as manager Chris Wilder seeks a forward combination that can produce goals.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Sheffield United

Chelsea have been solid at the back in recent weeks and, coupled with Sheffield United’s lacklustre forward line, all signs point to a Blues victory.

Indeed, Lampard shouldn’t be surprised if his men are two goals to the good by half time.

United may struggle to push out of their half if they play five in defence once more, especially against a home side where Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are continually demanding the ball.

Our prediction: Chelsea 3-0 Sheffield United
