Chelsea play host to Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, having won 23 and lost only 7 of the 40 games.

The last time the two teams met at Chelsea was more than a decade ago, in May 1994, as the Blues squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a Premiership match.
