Chelsea will face Sheffield United in the FA Cup quarter-finals at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Thomas Tuchel, a Chelsea midfielder, has a 13-game unbeaten streak with the Blades. Meanwhile, after recently parting ways with their boss Chris Wilder, tourists are heading to West London.
Here are all the details you’ll need to plan a match between Sheffield United and Chelsea.

The winner of Sunday’s quarter-final match between Chelsea and Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge will advance to the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.
Thomas Tuchel returns his undefeated record as Chelsea’s head coach to Stamford Bridge once more as the Blues look to win their second cup competition in four days after advancing to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-0 aggregate victory over Atletico Madrid in midweek.
Sheffield United, who was sacked by Premier League boss Chris Wilder a week ago, are the visitors to west London this afternoon, hoping to shock caretaker Paul Heckingbottom.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is undefeated in 13 games since Tuchel took over, has strongly re-entered the race for the top four, has conceded only two goals in that time, and is flying since the German took over from Frank Lampard.
In a one-off FA Cup tie, however, Premier League form means nothing, and the match will be played to a conclusion this afternoon, even if extra time and penalties are required.
We’ll have all of the build-ups to the early afternoon kick-off from Stamford Bridge, as well as match action and the Blues’ head coach’s post-match response.
So stay put for the next few hours; we’ll take care of everything.
Chelsea 2-0 Sheffield United is my prediction.
With the Blades looking all at sea without Chris Wilder – as demonstrated by their 5-0 loss at the King Power Stadium last time out – Thomas Tuchel should make adjustments but should have little trouble progressing to the semi-finals.
