There is no denying Thomas Tuchel has started his Chelsea managerial career in fine fashion.

Seven points from the first nine available, including a fine win away to a Tottenham Hotspur managed by Jose Mourinho, has re-ignited hopes that Chelsea could finish in the top-four.

This evening, Chelsea are in Yorkshire taking on Sheffield United in a Premier League fixture many feel the club just has to won.

Sheffield United are rock bottom of the table and have had a poor first half of the season, especially in comparison to last season, but these games, where expectation levels are so high, are often the most dangerous.

As is the norm, we are, via our Match Day Moments feature, giving you the opportunity to air your view on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:

1 – The build up to this Premier League fixture.

2 – The starting XI selected by Thomas Tuchel.

3 – The action as it happens at Brammall Lane.

4 – Your thought in the immediate period following the sounding of the final whistle.

Are the three points coming our way?

Up the Chels!

    Spurs have got back Kane from injury & picked up 3 pts to go above us …. Now we need to respond. I feel Tuchel can still get us into top-4 given that some or the other team above us is dropping points every week, but we need to pick up the 3 pts each time we play lower table opposition , and take it from there. Fingers crossed.

    Christensen doesn’t inspire me with confidence

  • ZeeNut says:

    We need to put more pressure on them ….

  • ZeeNut says:

    Does playing the same system 3-4-3 Vs bottom club Sheffield United indicate Tuchel does not trust our defence

  • ZeeNut says:

    Mason Mount & Werner combine for a nice goal … Well finished by Mount in Lampardesque style arriving in the box at the right time …. .they have been the sharpest of our players today.

    1-0 at HT

  • ZeeNut says:

    Rudiger concedes a clumsy own goal …. this Rudiger-Christensen partnership just doesnt inspire confidence

  • ZeeNut says:

    Luckily Werner gets a penalty & Jorginho converts confidently to put us ahead again

  • ZeeNut says:

    We need a 2 goal cushion

  • ZeeNut says:

    Sheffield looking dangerous … without Silva our defence looks like conceding any time

  • ZeeNut says:

    We need that 3rd
    We need that 3rd
    We need that 3rd

    ET – squeaky bum time

  • ZeeNut says:

    3 pts, into 5th, 1 point behind 4th placed Liverpool. good save by mendy at the death.

    This was always going to be the most difficult game!

  • ZeeNut says:

    In the days of Cech, Terry, Carvalho, Cole, Lampard, Essien, Drogba, Ballack , squeaky bum time was reserved for ManU, Liverpool etc …. nowadays every game we play goes down to the wire

  • ZeeNut says:

    The EPL has become better no doubt & bottom clubs are no pushovers, but still, those were the days !!

  • ZeeNut says:

    Tuchels interviews are really good … plus he gave a clear reasoning for his bringing on Alonso (as he would lose height in defending corners with Giroud going off) …. knows his stuff
