Chelsea are preparing to face Sheffield United in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday. The Blues reached the next round after having celebrated a 1-0 victory over Barnsley, while Sheffield beat Bristol City with a 1-0 score.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“Sheffield United were mauled by Leicester last week in their first game without Chris Wilder in charge.

“Wilder didn’t lose his job because he had lost the dressing room – far from it – and the Blades looked like a team who have just had the heart ripped out of their club.

“They are not going to bounce back here, either. Chelsea might not be too exciting to watch under Thomas Tuchel, but they know how to get the job done.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
