Leeds – Chelsea : Preview & Prediction
Leeds are having a good season, 9 points ahead of the relegation leader and a comfortable 11th place. However, the players of Bielsa are experiencing a mishap that comes at the most moment as it comes to entering the final sprint. With 5 defeats in 6 games, Leeds seems to lack physical freshness to find offensive solutions. A reaction is expected as soon as possible to avoid a stressful end of the season.
Chelsea have been in the midst of a revival since Tuchel took charge. Unbeaten in 9 league games, the Blues have mostly found a defensive solidity that they lacked to find themselves 4 points behind Manchester United, 2nd in the standings. Chelsea therefore managed 7 clean sheets in 9 games to test their new defensive system. Chelsea have the second best defense in the league with 25 goals conceded in 28 games. This Saturday, it is Chelsea’s attack that should be able to benefit from Leeds’s defensive largesse. Last December, Chelsea won 3-1 against Leeds.
