Thomas Tuchel continued his impressive start to life at Chelsea as he helped guide them past Atletico Madrid and into their Champions League last 8.

The Blues have looked impenetrable under their new German head coach conceding just three goals in three goals in 13 matches.

They host a Sheffield United side who are in disarray as they continue to languish at the bottom of the Premier League.

The Blades lost their first games since the departure of Chris Wilder last weekend as Paul Heckingbottom oversaw a 5-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Olivier Giroud to score first. The Frenchman could lead the line for Chelsea with Tuchel expected to rotate his side from the win over Atletico.

Giroud will be eager to impress Tuchel having been left on the bench for the last couple of matches.

But against a struggling Sheffield United side, Giroud is likely to be trusted and has already netted a few goals under Tuchel.

Sheffield United thrashed by Leicester

Sheffield United were trashed 5-0 by Leicester City last weekend leaving them 14 points away from safety.

The Blades opted to part ways with Chris Wilder before the defeat with Paul Heckingbottom being appointed as an interim.

Their form since the start of the year has been much improved, however, they face a near-impossible task to stay in the division.

Now their attention turns to the FA Cup where they have a shot at reaching the semi-finals, although, an impressive Chelsea side now stands in their way.
