Chelsea Leeds: Preview, Free tip & Prediction

10.12.2021 10:00

The 16th round of the top English football competition will feature a clash between Chelsea, who welcome visiting Leeds United to Stamford.

Basic information, news and team form

Chelsea, after a great start to the season, is experiencing its first crisis and with it a deterioration in performance and points. Chelsea played their last Champions League group stage match against Zenit St Petersburg on Wednesday. On the hot ground of Zenit, Chelsea went ahead twice, but the six-goal thriller eventually ended in an amicable 3-3 draw, meaning that Chelsea dropped from the expected first place in the group to the second place, and was thus eventually overtaken by Italy's Juventus by 15 points. This was the second game in a row where Chelsea's defence conceded more than 1 goal, which has only happened 4 times under Thomas Tuchel, and each time it happened with Ngolo Kante missing from the starting line-up. Chelsea's performance has also started to worsen in the English league, as the Londoners have only managed to win one of their last three games, against Watford, where they had to work hard to win. In the last league match, when the Blues lost to West Ham 3-2 meant Chelsea's fall from first place in the table. Chelsea is now in third place in the table with 33 points, and if they still want to think about the English title they must now hope for a falter from their opponents. After returning to the Premier League last season after sixteen years, Leeds have thrilled many fans with their attacking and combination football, which apart from looking pretty also delivers results and Marcelo Bielsa's charges have shone with ninth place in the table last season, while they have also notched up several scalps of top six teams during this season. This season, however, the performances of The Peacocks are noticeably worse out of the fifteen games played, Leeds have notched up seven draws and just three wins, which have brought them 16 points in the table so far. The visitors from Leeds can at least take solace in the fact that they managed to keep a 0-0 draw at home in their last league game against Chelsea, and with Chelsea's current declining form, Marcelo Bielsa's charges could surprise and take some points from Stamford Bridge.

Absentees and estimated line-ups 

Chelsea will continue to miss Ben Chilwell and Ngolo Kante. Trevoh Chalobah has a new thigh problem, and Mateo Kovacic, who has already started training has been diagnosed with Covid. Thomas Tuchel also has problems in midfield, with Jorghinho and Loftus Cheek missing against Zenit, but the former could return to the line-up for the next game. As for Leeds, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips suffered thigh muscle injuries in the draw with Brentford. Leeds have their star striker from last season Patrick Bamford back but he suffered a bruise in their last game against Brentford and his start is doubtful.

Chelsea - estimated line-up:

Mendy - Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger - James, Jorginho, Saul, Alonso - Mount, Werner - Lukaku

Leeds - estimated line-up:

Meslier - Dallas, Ayling, Llorente, Struijk, Firpo - Raphinha, Klich, Forshaw, James - Roberts
