Chelsea vs Leeds Preview & Prediction
Chelsea has dropped seven points in their last five matches in the Premier League, which has seen them fall from first to third in the space of a week.
With their latest encounter being a heart-breaking 3-2 loss against local rivals West Ham, despite gaining the lead twice throughout the match. They could feel hard done after conceding a cross turned shot in the final minutes.
The indifferent form of the Blues can be coincided with the injuries to striker Romelu Lukaku and attacker Timo Werner, forcing Kai Havertz to play in an unnatural false nine position. However, Romelu Lukaku has played limited minutes recently and is ready to play the full 90.
Similarly, Liam Cooper’s side has struggled without their star striker Patrick Bamford for the start of the season and currently sit six points above the drop. Although Bamford did score a last-second equaliser last time out to erupt Elland Road.
Leeds United have struggled away from their home support, only winning one match away from this season from seven games. Juxtaposed to Chelsea’s home record of only one loss this season, coming against ladder leaders Manchester City.
It will be a shock if Leeds can claim the bragging rights over their rivals, but if there was any time to do it, it would be now. The Blues will be fresh off playing midweek in an entertaining 3-3 draw in Russia.
The contest between the two managers will be the most intriguing matchup on the day. Thomas Tuchel has made his stamp as one of the best managers in the world at the moment, whilst Marcelo Bielsa is renowned for his tactical nous and in-depth analysis of teams.
Although Chelsea have been inconsistent in the past few weeks, they still have the incredible squad depth and will make at least six changes to the team that played in the Champions League this week.
Chelsea have had nine games this season that have been over 2.5 goals, including a 7-0 rout over Norwich. (Best Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds: $1.60 with Sportsbet).
