Why are people all of a sudden wanting Pulisic benched? 

So that their darling Afro willian who will not have more than 7 goals all season will go out there and make a mess of our play...

I have noticed people omitting Pulisic even during the preseason? It is odd as he adds some speed to the attack and is always looking to set up other players.

This lot could be dodgy.I hope they're not Bournemouth in disguise!!! I would love us to win this 3-0.Give Frankie his first home league win and push us up the table before the international break. But this is our Chelsea, so bloody unpredictable........

Let's look for progress. First and foremost defensively. Alongside Liverpool, let's have our first competitive match where we aren't a shambles defensively.

Sheffield United attack with kind of organised chaos. I couldn't stop laughing when I heard they use 'overlapping cbs'lol.
Also just put mount in my fantasy team. So if he plays shit it's because of me.

I hope we can keep a clean sheet I doubt it tho we look awful at the back under lamps 

Would love to see Tomori instead of Zouma at some point. Would continue with Christensen-Zouma today

Can't speak for everyone else but for me it's this.

1. I think the diamond is the way to go for this one.

2. He needs to be managed carefully, he's 20 and will need time, starting him week in week out will be counterproductive, even someone like Bernardo was eased in to the PL.

Chelsea: Predicting a rampant victory against overlapping centerbacks

https://theprideoflondon.com/2019/08/31/chelsea-predicting-rampant-victory-overlapping-centerbacks/

Chelsea hosts newly promoted Sheffield “overlapping centerbacks” United. Our contributors are expecting big things from the Blues.

Scott Brant: Chelsea 3-Sheffield United 1. Lampard’s first clean sheet won’t come this week either. I have given up all hope that Michy Batshuayi starts and features under Lampard. Chelsea should run over Sheffield with ease, I said the same thing last week about Norwich, and well that wasn’t with ease. Sheffield United is a tamer beast though, and shouldn’t be an issue regardless if N’Golo Kante and Pedro are out. Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount to have monster days with a goal each, and the third coming from a defender, set piece goal.

Abhishek Pancholi: 4-0.Despite protestations from various corners, Lampard will hand Abraham another start against The Blades. Abraham won’t disappoint, notching up two more goals, leaving Batshuayi reevaluating his life choices on the bench. Future England star, Mount, will add another goal after the break while Willian will round off the scoring in the 85th minute.

Olaoluwa Nwobodo: 4-0. It’s not going to be an easy game, which is why most of the goals will come in the final 15 minutes. Sheffield United will do their best to unsettle Chelsea and exploit the space Chelsea gifts them. They won’t succeed. Lampard and his boys will give Sheffield United the classic “welcome to the Premier League” drubbing. Chelsea will be too much for them. Abraham hat-trick (that boy can finish, damn!), Mount goal. Jorginho to finally get a Premier League assist, or two this season.

Kevin Peacock: 3-1. Fresh from last week’s win over Norwich, Lampard’s Chelsea face another side he’ll be familiar with as a manager. For Mount and Tambraham, they too will know the opposition well. The result of his game will depend, to a degree, on how much Jody Morris and SFL have managed to iron out the issues in Chelsea’s defence at Cobham through the week. Game on game there have improvements. It’s doubtful Lamps will ever master Jose Mourinho’s ability to park the bus, nor should he try. Outscoring the opposition is all that matters. Expect them to do that. Chelsea to win 3-1 goals from Tambraham, Mount and Emerson.

Nate Hofmann: 3-1. Saturday’s match will be Sheffield’s first crack at one of the “Big Six” Premier League clubs.  Much has been made about their unique tactics and style of play (overlapping centerbacks?!), but whether they’ll stick to their guns against more intimidating opposition is yet to be seen.  If I were Chris Wilder, I would be ecstatic that my first major challenge of the season is against Chelsea, who look like they’d struggle to keep a clean sheet against a set of training cones at the moment.  That said, some optimism within the Blades’ ranks could be to Chelsea’s benefit. If the likes of Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic can get a bit of time on the ball in the final third, they should be able to create plenty of chances against a group of Sheffield defenders who tend to be closer to the center circle than their own penalty box.

We should be bossing the midfield with all these players in there but there's almost no natural width. Huge occasion for Tomori.

Let's get 3 points before the international break, please! Would be great to go in with a convincing victory and then have 3 hugely imprortant injured players returning when we come back. Kante, CHO, and Rüdiger returning will feel like new signings.
