Chelsea vs Leeds United Preview, Prediction, H2H Results, Livestream. Premier League Gameweek 28
In form Chelsea take on struggling Leeds United in the Premier League. Alley Sport brings Chelsea vs Leeds United preview and insights to the clash.
Chelsea have rejuvenated under their new manager Thomas Tuchel, boosting their chances of finishing in the top 4, while Leeds United face a stiff battle to finish in the top half of the league on their return to the Premier League.
Chelsea vs Leeds United Preview
Chelsea showed their resurgent form with a 2-0 victory over a difficult Everton side, who were outplayed by the Blues. Chelsea are just 3 points off the 3rd position Leicester City and 4 points off Manchester United, and a win over Leeds would heat up the race within these sides. Chelsea face a stern Champions League test against Atletico Madrid before their Leeds clash, with Tuchel hoping that his side does not suffer from physical and mental fatigue against a tricky Bielsa side.
Leeds United have disappointed after a bright start to their debut Premier League season, with a 2-0 loss against West Ham pushing them to the 11th position in the League table. Only 1 win in their 5 previous Premier League matches has dented Bielsa’s hopes for European football, and they would be seeking to cause an upset against Chelsea to complicate things for the Blues.
Chelsea vs Leeds United Preview: Prediction
Chelsea have been unbeaten under their new manager, and are expected to win against this vulnerable Leeds side, whose defense is under heavy criticism for conceding goals under heavy pressure. Chelsea usually dominate possession since the beginning of the game, and Leeds need to defend well against the tormenting start to get something off the game, with Bielsa being satisfied with a point won off the game.
Chelsea vs Leeds United Preview: H2H Results
Leeds United were rivals to Chelsea in the Premier League prior to their long absence in the elite English division. Their last Premier League encounter was in 2004 (barring this season), where Chelsea won 1-0, while their last meeting resulted in a 5-1 drubbing for Leeds United in the 2012 League Cup.
The last encounter this season ended in a 3-1 victory for Chelsea, a comeback victory for the Blues with Christian Pulisic, Oliver Giroud and Kurt Zouma sealing the game for the Blues, after an early strike by ex-Chelsea player Patrick Bamford. Chelsea dominated the game and are expected to win this time around as well.
