How Chelsea and Sheffield United might line-up in FA Cup clash on Sunday


Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham are ready to return as Chelsea welcome Sheffield United in FA Cup Quarter Final.

Thomas Tuchel, who remains unbeaten as Chelsea boss, handed a major injury boost as new signing Thiago Silva – out with a thigh injury – and forward Tammy Abraham – out with ankle problem – are available for selection for Sunday’s clash against the Blades.

Mason Mount and Jorginho are also available as the duo missed Champions League second leg tie against Atletico Madrid in the mid-week due to suspension.

David McGoldrick, who missed 5-0 thumping against Leicester City last weekend due to knee injury, has also joined the training squad and could be recalled for Stamford Bridge visit. However, Jack Rodwell (hamstring), Jack O’Connell (knee), Sander Berge (hamstring), Jack Robinson (Jack Robinson), and John Egan (John Egan) remain unavailable for the Blades.

Chelsea’s expected line-up

Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma; Reece James, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic; Olivier Giroud

Sheffield United’s expected line-up

Aaron Ramsdale (GK); Kean Bryan, Chris Basham, Enda Stevens; Max Lowe, John Lundstram, John Fleck, Oliver Norwood, Jayden Bogle; Oliver Burke, Billy Sharpe
