Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea side will be in good spirits following their display against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in midweek.

The London club have gone from strength to strength under their new manager and will be looking to pick up another three points against Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Sunday.

In defence, Tuchel will most likely look to shake things up due to injuries and the games coming thick and fast at the moment. That probably means a return for Kepa Arrizabalaga in goals, with Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta making up the back three.

Sunday’s clash should also see a return to the left flank for Ben Chilwell with Callum Hudson-Odoi on the right flank.

In midfield, Tuchel is likely to continue the squad rotation with Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho in the midfield duo with Mason Mount returning from his suspension to join them in the middle of the pitch.

Tuchel is hoping to use Tammy Abraham in some form on Sunday, but is likely to start with Olivier Giroud up front and a rare start for Christian Pulisic off the French striker as a No.10 in the match.
