Chelsea will hope to maintain their form of form when they host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Blues have been impressive of late, winning three straight wins and being unbeaten in seven games in all competitions, as well as having five clean sheets for the first time since Carlo Ancelotti's reign a decade ago.
It's an entirely different story for Sheffield United, who remained without a top-flight win this season and finished 19th in 2020/21 with just one point from their first seven matches.
This is another difficult task for the Blades, who have already faced Liverpool and Manchester City in consecutive weeks.
Date, time, and place
Chelsea vs Sheffield United is scheduled for kickoff on Saturday, November 7, 2020, at 5:30 pm GMT.
Christian Pulisic's 3-0 Champions League win over the Rains on Wednesday resulted in a warm-up injury at Burnley due to an injury that caused him to withdraw from Frank Lampard's starting lineup for that game.
The American forward was already training again before Raines' game and was expected to be fit for this weekend, but is now ruled out by Lampard.
Kepa Arizabalaga is back in shape but still has some pain in his shoulder, while signing Kai Havertz after testing positive for Kovind-19 is not available in the summer.
Head-to-head history and results (h2h)
Sheffield United actually has an advantage in terms of wins in matches between these two clubs during the Premier League era, awarding Chelsea four out of three wins.
The Blues were 3-0 embarrassed in a disappointing performance at Bramall Lane in July, taking a 2-0 lead against the same opponents in a disappointing draw at Stamford Bridge 11 months earlier.
