Thiago Silva And Malo Gusto To Start; Christopher Nkunku On The Bench: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Play Sheff Utd

After suffering their seventh league defeat of the season against Everton last weekend, Chelsea’s season is threatening to unravel completely.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has already stated that he may need to sign more players in January, despite £1bn being spent on this squad over the last 18 months. It’s a damning verdict on an unfocused recruitment strategy that has led to a whole host of talented young players being signed but with no forethought as to how they can work as a team.

The Blues face a Sheffield United side this weekend who have just won their first match under new manager Chris Wilder. Even so, with the game being played at Stamford Bridge, the home fans are entitled to expect a win from this fixture.
