Frank Lampard will want a first victory in front of the Stamford Bridge faithful after seeing his side held 1-1 by Leicester in their previous home match.

These two last met 12 years ago and it was Chelsea who eased to a 3-0 win after goals from Andriy Shevchenko, Ricardo Carvalho and Salomon Kalou.

The Blades have an identical points total to Chelsea since returning to the top flight, having drawn with Bournemouth and beating Crystal Palace, but a better goal difference.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger are back in training, but are unlikely to feature and N’Golo Kante remains out.
