After a bitterly disappointing start to the campaign, it is hard to argue that Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been severely hit by the “second season syndrome”. Leeds will hope the return of Patrick Bamford will reinvigorate their campaign and lead them to victory against a recently faltering Chelsea side. On this note, Alley Sport brings you the Leeds United predicted lineup vs Chelsea, Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Livestream from this decisive Gameweek 16 encounter in the Premier League 2021/22 season.

Leeds United vs Chelsea Preview and Livestream

Leeds surprised everyone last season, with their free-flowing all-or-nothing dynamic style of football taking the league by storm and receiving wide acclaim. However, they have found it hard to replicate their superb form this time around and the injury to star striker Patrick Bamford has definitely not helped. With 6 goals to his name, Raphinha has been their only shining light in an otherwise forgettable season. Leeds fans will hope the return of their striker will coincide with an upturn in form and will reignite their push to achieving European football next season.

Engaged in a fierce three-way battle at the top of the league, Chelsea, on the other hand, have enjoyed a brilliant start to the campaign. The return of Romelu Lukaku to the starting eleven will provide a significant boost for the Blues, who will hope the Belgian striker regains his blistering early season form after a lengthy injury lay-off. Despite recent aberrations against Manchester United and West Ham, Thomas Tuchel’s team remain one of the most solid and organized teams in the league and will look to get the job done in comfortable fashion against Leeds this weekend.
