Chelsea vs. Leeds United Match Analysis and Prediction

Stamford Bridge sets to come alive this weekend with 2,000 fans cheering on for the first time since lockdown. The Blues will be playing host to Leeds United on Saturday with match kickoff at 11 pm.

Frank Lampard has an already established record against Leeds while back in his championship management days. The chapter could be added this weekend to see the side take the top spot in the Premier League.

From the Spygate controversy to the Championship playoffs, Lampard’s meeting with Leeds over the recent past has been something to look forward to. The Blues head into the match as the favorites having won seven on their last eight Premier League matches across all competitions. Their current winning streak stretches to 15 matches within the 90 minutes.

Only league leaders Tottenham have prevented the Blues from making it eight wins since October 24. The side bounced back from their goalless draw against Chelsea to a resounding 4-0 win over Sevilla in the Champions League. Olivier Giroud lit up the stage while netting a hat-trick and another goal to top it off.

Leeds United are proving an underdog for the Big Six with the power to break through the defences. However, Chelsea has only lost three home matches against promoted oppositions in the Premier League era. The last top four flight trips to London have ended in a defeat for the side.
