Reason for Leeds United vs Chelsea Predictions
Like Chelsea, Leeds is unbeaten in their opening two matches and sits sixth at the start of their first full season under Jesse Marsch. Leeds made a big call to replace Marcelo Bielsa with Marsch last season, but the American secured their safety on the final day of the Premier League, and they have built on that. Starting the season at home to Wolves, Leeds beat Bruno Lage’s men 2-1 thanks to Rodrigo and an own goal from Rayan Ait-Nouri, and they took a two-goal lead against Southampton last weekend. However, they eventually gave up their advantage, conceding twice in nine minutes to eventually draw 2-2. Adam Forshaw has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Rodrigo is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Stuart Dallas (Thigh Problems) and Mateusz Bogusz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch.
While a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur is nothing to be truly upset about, Chelsea fans certainly felt aggrieved about dropping two points against their London rivals last Sunday. The Blues twice took the lead at Stamford Bridge, first through Kalidou Koulibaly and then Reece James, but were eventually pegged back on both occasions, with the second equalizer coming in injury time via the head of Harry Kane. Moments before Kane’s equalizer, there was some controversy as the referee and VAR did not deem Cristian Romero pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair as a red card offense. That, plus a potential foul and offside in Tottenham’s first equalizer, led to heated moments between Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte on the touchline, and the German was sent off at the end of the match. As a result, Tuchel will miss the trip to Elland Road as Chelsea look to get their second win of the season. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Jorginho is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him. In an otherwise healthy group, there is only a single fitness problem for Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to be concerned with. N’Golo Kanté (Muscular problems) misses out on this game.
Chelsea is the favorite in this match, and tradition is on the side of the Blues. We believe the visitors will meet the expectations.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
