GOOD AFTERNOON FROM LONDON
Welcome to our live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final clash between Chelsea and Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge.
Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is unlikely to risk Thiago Silva even though the star defender has recovered from a thigh injury he suffered recently.
Tuchel is hoping to have Tammy Abraham back into the fold following an ankle knock but Mason Mount and Jorginho will definitely be available after missing the Champions League Last-16 clash against Atletico Madrid midweek through a suspension.
The west Londoners are coming in with a lot of confidence as they have advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals after eliminating Atletico and are set to take on Porto.
Sheffield United ace David McGoldrick may return after missing last weekend's 5-0 loss at Leicester due to a knee injury.
McGoldrick trained on Friday with the rest of the team and thus Blades interim boss Paul Heckingbottom will have to make a late call on the striker's fitness.
Heckingbottom, who recently replaced former manager Chris Wilder, will be without Jack O'Connell (knee), John Egan (toe), Jack Robinson (foot), Jack Rodwell and Sander Berge (hamstring).
Sheffield United seem to be on their way back to the Championship but are still hoping for an FA Cup upset when they visit Chelsea
