Snap! One change for Chris Wilder too as Oli McBurnie makes his first Premier League start for the club. He’s in for David McGoldrick.

Afternoon

14:45: Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Chelsea vs Sheffield United from Stamford Bridge.

Sorry I’ve arrived late – I was busy watching Manchester United extend their run of winless games to three. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed to beat 10-man Southampton.

Strange to thing of the opening day of the season now. How exactly did they thrash Chelsea 4-0?! Crazy stuff.

Frank Lampard’s side have come along way since then. Putting in a decent shift against Liverpool in the Super Cup and registering their first win of the season over Norwich.
