Reason for Chelsea vs Leeds United Predictions
Chelsea will be looking to go back on top of the league standings when they host Leeds United in the next round of matches. The Blues are third on 33 points while Leeds is 15th with 16 points. The last two games haven’t been the best for the Blues, what seemed like an impenetrable defense has been breached six times. They have no clean sheet in the last four matches and haven’t really been convincing since their 4-0 win over Juventus. They are coming from a 3-3 draw with Zenit, after a 3-2 loss to West Ham United. After three straight away matches, they will be glad to get back home, and this will be the first of two straight home games. Mateo Kovacic (Coronavirus) and Ben Chilwell (Knee Injury) are not available for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
Leeds United hasn’t had a very good spell themselves; they go to this game with just one win in the last five matches. They drew 2-2 with Brentford in their previous game, and they had to show great fighting spirit to win. Patrick Bamford, returning from injury, got the winner, but unfortunately, in the celebrations, he hurt himself. Bamford is expected to miss this game with a tight hamstring, and it adds to Leeds’ woes as Kalvin Philips is also out for the long term. It can’t get tougher for Marcelo Bielsa, who is struggling to replicate last season’s run. With just three wins in 10 matches, Leeds will have a tough one against Chelsea, and their away run isn’t better either. Adam Forshaw has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Raphinha is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
Chelsea is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
