With a record of eight wins, 17 losses and 10 draws after 35 games, Leeds step into this game in 17th place in the league. The team has had 12 losses in the latest twenty matches, bagging a total of 39 goals so far while conceding 74. This has mostly been thanks, in large part, to the efforts by Jack Harrison, who has six goals, and Rodrigo Moreno who has four. In their most recent match, The Whites beat Arsenal 2-1.
With a tally of 66 points so far this campaign, Chelsea are looking for the win and are one of the top teams in the Premier League standings, which also brings with it the possibility of playing in the UCL tournament. They dropped points against Wolves 2-2 last Saturday and the team has had seven wins in the most recent twelve matches and so far this campaign, they’ve earned 19 wins, six losses and nine draws. When they have succeded this season, it’s mostly been thanks, in large part, to the showings from Kai Havertz and Mason Mount. Can the pair guideBlues to a win here?
Heading into this clash, Leeds will be missing Adam Forshaw, Patrick Bamford, Tyler Roberts, Stuart Dallas and Crysencio Summerville. Chelsea will be missing Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell.
