Leeds United vs. Chelsea Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea is on a mission to make it three Premier League outings in a row when they travel to take on Leeds United this weekend. The side travels to Elland Road this Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.

The Blues recorded a 2-0 win over Everton to move fourth in the table; two points are clear of fifth-placed West Ham United, while Leeds occupy11th spot in England’s top flight.

Leeds has had an impressive season since the start of the season, managing to pick up 35 points from 27 matches occupy the 11th position on the table. The side is currently nine points clear of the relegation zone.

The Whites have 11 wins in the Premier League, which is the same as Arsenal and just one fewer than the Champions Liverpool. However, they suffered 14 losses, which is more than the 18th-placed Fulham.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side is on a poor run of form, having lost four of their last five Premier League outings. It includes their last two recent defeats against Aston Villa and West Ham without scoring.

The best fit for Bielsa is that their side does not suffer any relegation fears, sitting nine points clear of the bottom three. The Capital giants remain unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel’s leadership. The former PSG manager won eight and drew three of his last 11 matches at the helm.
