How Chelsea could line up against Sheffield United

:Headline: How Chelsea could line up against Sheffield United:
Ahead of Saturday's Premier League game between Chelsea and Sheffield United, Sports Mole looks at how the Blues could line up at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea play host to Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon with Frank Lampard having finally recorded his first competitive win since his return to Stamford Bridge.

While the first eight days of the season saw the Blues fail to defeat any of Manchester United, Liverpool or Leicester City, the West Londoners ended that run with a 3-2 victory against Norwich City.

However, given that they are still in the bottom half of the Premier League standings, the pressure remains on Chelsea ahead of the visit of the Blades.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how Lampard's side may line up against the newly-promoted outfit.



Out: Pedro (thigh), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles), Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles), Reece James (ankle),
Doubtful: N'Golo Kante (ankle), Mason Mount (calf),

Lampard will hope to have N'Golo Kante back in contention this weekend, although the midfielder may have to make do with a place on the bench after Mateo Kovacic impressed at Carrow Road.

Providing that he can shake off a calf injury, Mason Mount will start, likely leaving Ross Barkley to return to the bench with Willian now ready to take on more responsibility after his prolonged summer break.

While Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi are both looking to feature in attack, Lampard will almost certainly keep faith with Tammy Abraham after his double against the Canaries.

Both Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen will be fearing for their places after Antonio Rudigier's return from a knee injury, but the German may be kept among the replacements until after the international break.

Despite a return to training after an Achilles injury, Callum Hudson-Odoi is not in contention to earn a place in the 18-man group this weekend. body check tags ::
