Sheffield United v Chelsea live stream, Sky Sports, Sunday 7 February, 7.15pm GMT

Thomas Tuchel will be looking to continue his fine start to life as Chelsea manager when his team travel to Bramall Lane on Sunday.

The Blues ran out 1-0 winners against Tottenham (opens in new tab) last time out, which means Tuchel has taken seven points from the first nine available since he succeeded Frank Lampard last week. 

The German has already put his stamp on this team, and the dominant nature of their performance against Spurs will have been particularly pleasing. Just four points now separate Chelsea (opens in new tab) from the top four, and they will hope to close the gap further this weekend.

Sheffield United (opens in new tab) were also victorious in midweek, but Brighton (opens in new tab)’s shock win at Liverpool (opens in new tab) means survival is still a tall order. Chris Wilder’s side will certainly exceed Derby’s record low points tally of 11, but that is the same number that separates them from 17th spot at the time of writing. It would take a gargantuan effort for the Blades to avoid the drop, but victory here would keep their hopes alive.

Chelsea were without Kurt Zouma and Kai Havertz for the victory over Tottenham, but both players have a chance of being available for the trip to Bramall Lane. Thiago Silva suffered a muscular injury against Jose Mourinho’s side and will miss out.

Chelsea will stick with the 3-4-2-1 formation that has served them well under Tuchel so far. Callum Hudson-Odoi, previously deployed at wing-back, was pushed forward into a more advanced role against Spurs, and will probably play there again on Sunday. Tammy Abraham could come in for Timo Werner up top.

Sheffield United are expected to have six players out for the visit of Chelsea. Jack O’Connell is unlikely to play this season due to a knee injury, while his fellow defender Jack Robinson is also on the treatment table. 

Sander Berge is not due back until next month at the earliest and George Baldock has picked up a thigh strain. Ben Osborn and Enda Stevens are both carrying knocks, with neither player likely to be fit enough to play on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 7.15pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Sheffield United v Chelsea live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
