With four wins over Sheffield Utd in their last five duels, the Blues have been the better team recently. The same can be said for their overall H2H record as well—42-16-28 in favour of Chelsea.

Sheffield Utd preview: On their way back to Championship

As things stand, Sheffield United will be back in the Championship after just one season in the Premier League. After all, they are at the very bottom of the standings, with just 15 points from 30 matches, and they are also in very poor form at the moment.

One of the reasons for that is an extensive injury list. Right now, Sheffield Utd are without Daniel Jebbison, Chris Basham, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Rhian Brewster, Tom Davies, George Baldock, John Egan, and Max Lowe .

Predicted Lineup: Grbic – Holgate, Robinson, Ahmedhodzic – Bogle, Hamer, Arblaster, Souza, Trusty – Brereton Diaz, McBurnie

Chelsea preview: Hoping to sustain their good form

While Chelsea have been in good form recently, they are still far from the top, sitting in the middle of the standings in the Premier League. However, Chelsea have also reached the EFL Cup final and are scheduled to meet Man City in the FA Cup semi-final, so their season still produced some memorable moments, and we could see more of them.

Meanwhile, Lesley Ugochukwu, Levi Colwill, Christopher Nkunku, Reece James, Romeo Lavia. and Wesley Fofana are out with injuries, while Ben Chilwell and Robert Sanchez are also doubtful.

Predicted Lineup: Petrovic – Gusto, Disasi, Badiashile, Cucurella – Fernandez, Caicedo – Gallagher, Palmer, Madueke – Jackson

Player to watch: Cole Palmer

The young Englishman is having a breakthrough season at Chelsea, better than anyone could've hoped for. With 16 goals and eight assists in the Premier League, he is the team's bright star and our player to watch in this match.

Can Palmer be the first to score?

We already saw Palmer score the first goal of the match in six occasions this season in the Premier League, including Chelsea's first duel with Sheffield United in the league. Will we see it again?
