Team News

Leeds
Chelsea
  • Luis Sinisterra came off the bench late on for Leeds, as did Adam Forshaw, last time out.
  • Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling and Junior Firpo remain out.
  • Rodrigo looks set to start up front following Bamford's early substitution against Southampton, and he is a doubt to start against former club Chelsea.
  • N'golo Kante will miss the trip to Elland Road after suffering a hamstring injury against Tottenham Hotspur.
  • Mateo Kovacic remains out after missing the London derby last weekend.
  • Ruben Loftus-Cheek may move into central midfield following his good performance against Spurs.

Prediction

  • Jesse Marsch's side are unbeaten this season, conceding three goals in the process. They are level on points with Sunday's opponents Chelsea. The loss of Bamford gives Rodrigo, who scored a brace at St Mary's last weekend, the chance to extend his scoring run against the Blues.
  • Chelsea were unlucky to draw against Tottenham, following controversy towards the end of the game. Thomas Tuchel will be in the stands as he serves a touchline ban following his late sending off after his touchline clash with Antonio Conte. Kalidou Koluibaly scored his first goal for the club, and has looked very impressive in their last two games.
  • Chelsea were clinical on their last visit to Elland Road and will be hoping for more of the same, while this proves as Leeds' first major test of the season. The Blues look set to take all three points back with them down south.

  • You always talk about Haverz, but first of all Jorginho is a complete shitter last and this game. The flanks were poor today and it is very important to have strong flanks with this tactics. Cuccurella is much weaker than Alonso. Reece James should play on the right side instead of RLC. Also what the hell is Tuchel doing? You lose 0-2 and should make subs after first half. Very dissapoined. The team has degraded after the CL win.

  • Tuchel blaming the long bus ride from London to Leeds as it was not possible to fly lol

  • The shocking thing was that Chelsea didn't come close to scoring at all. This wasn't a fluke win, Chelsea just couldn't do anything. Aaronson is a real talent, guy's just 21.

  • @Yassine_1 Right. As a Chelsea fan it was a pain to watch. Amazing match from Leeds though.

  • @MrNemobody VERY hard to watch indeed...

  • Haverts the best strike in the history surpassing Pele and Brazilian Ronaldo.

  • A great convincing win for Leeds.

  • It was never going to be easy for Chelsea to focus on this match given how angry they still are about last weekend.

  • I think game was controlled.

  • Beautiful ♥

  • Will Tuchel shake hands at the end ? :)

  • I'm tired of tuchel's favoritism towards loftus cheek and havertz already. Maybe we need a new manager.

  • Tuchel could be sacked soon.Owner has given him absolute millions to spend but they are playing very poorly.Poch to take over :)

  • @Rensen I think Tuchel will resign to Manchester United or Juventus soon.

  • @Rensen Poch is finished. No big club will hire him. Except perhaps Man Utd and only bc they're run by idiots

  • @Rensen 3 games into the prem and you're talking about being sacked, talk about reactionary.

  • Havertz being Havertz again ...

  • No one has pulled Cucurellas hair yet. :)

  • Leeds have been playing well since Jesse Marsch took over.

  • @Rensen Let's change the team name to LUSC instead of FC

  • @oc2k19 let's not

  • Over 2.5

  • 2-2 Koulibaly MotM

  • Chelsea to score over 1.5 goals @1.53

  • I hope Chelsea loses. I dispise Tuchel and the anti-football.

  • Expect Cucurella to start ahead of Chilwell.

  • Another aggressive/dirty team to face....

  • @xxl92 I don't think Chelsea are all that Dirty....They have bought most of their success with dirty money however.

  • @DeuceBetter ???

  • @DeuceBetter how's that possible

  • @Moralez not sure what you are asking here? Oil is pretty dirty in any form isn't it? Shame I can't use crayons to write this!
