Leeds United and Chelsea will face each other in the Premier League this week. The match will be held at Elland Road and is scheduled to kick off at 7:30pm UK time on Wednesday.

Leeds United

Leeds United are struggling for survival in the Premier League at the moment and are in real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season. The Whites are third from bottom in the league table at the moment with 34 points from 35 matches, level on pots with 17th-placed Burnley.

The West Yorkshire club will head into the match against Chelsea on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League. It followed a 4-0 loss at the hands of Manchester City at Elland Road in the league.

Team News:

Defender Luke Ayling is suspended, and striker Patrick Bamford is injured. However, captain and defender Liam Cooper could make his comeback from a knee injury.

Chelsea

Chelsea are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 67 points from 35 matches. Thomas Tuchel’s side are a point clear of fourth-placed Arsenal and five points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in fifth.

The Blues will head into the match against Leeds on the back of a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge in London. It followed a 1-0 defeat to Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds are without a win in the past seven meetings against Chelsea in all competitions.
  • Leeds are in the Premier League’s bottom three for the first time since October 30.
  • Leeds have gone 10 top-flight matches without a clean sheet at home.
  • Chelsea have dropped 20 points from winning positions this season.
  • Chelsea have won just five of their 46 league away matches at Leeds.

Conclusion

Leeds are not having the best of times, but they could eke out a point against a Chelsea side who will probably have an eye on the FA Cup final against Liverpool this weekend.
