Reason for Leeds United vs Chelsea Predictions
Scoring goals was at some point Leeds United’s strong point, but that seems to have abandoned them, with the team currently failing to score in three of their last five matches. They’ve suffered four losses in their previous five games, and the 3-0 win over Southampton is their only clean sheet in the last five matches. Marcelo Bielsa’s side goes to this game, having conceded eight goals and scored five in the previous five games. At home, their only clean sheets in five matches have come against struggling sides; Southampton and Crystal Palace. The fact that they have managed just five wins in 13 home league games points to the struggles Leeds has gone through. Out of a possible 39 points at home in the league, Leeds has only managed to collect 17. Kalvin Phillips has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Patrick Bamford was the team’s best player last season, with 16 goals scored. He is doing great in the penalty area, and goals are also expected from him in the Premier League.
On the other hand, Chelsea has really stabilized under new coach Thomas Tuchel and looks like real title contenders though a place in the top four would be good enough. The Blues trail third-placed Leicester City by three points, and with a win here, they could move above the Foxes. Chelsea is coming from a 2-0 win over Everton, which served their fourth straight clean sheet though they failed to score in one of the last five matches. They haven’t lost any of their previous 13 games away from home, are unbeaten in the last four league games. Chelsea under Tuchel has been a better defensive side, but they don’t score a lot, just enough to win games. As a result, 10 of their last 11 league matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored while they have seven clean sheets in the previous nine league matches. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the defensive team. Many teams are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an awesome player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Chelsea is the favorite in this match, and with the arrival of Tuchel, the hosts do not spare their opponents.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. This clash should be a real treat for all football fans.
