Chelsea Predicted XI: We predict Frank Lampard’s starting XI as Chelsea welcome Sheffield United to Stamford Bridge this afternoon
Defenders: Lampard will be delighted with his side’s run of clean sheets and will be hoping for the same again today. He will also be wary of managing his squad to limit injuries so we expect some personnel changes. Thiago Silva played very well against Burnley and again in the Champions League, meaning the Brazilian is unlikely to feature again today. We expect to see Antonio Rudiger start alongside Kurt Zouma in the heart of defence. With Cesar Azplilicueta providing experience at right back and Ben Chilwell on the left.
