Leeds VS Chelsea FC Preview photo at EPL maskani


Chelsea FC, 4th in table take on Leeds United, the 11th in EPL table, at quarter three stage of the Premier League season.

The 3-1 triumph in the reverse fixture in December sets up the likelihood of the Blues ‘double’ over the historic rivals in the top flight for 84 years.

10 matches remain to wind up the season. However, Leeds needs just two wins to stamp their remaining at the Premier League.

"Generally, the hardest teams to face in the run-in are those with an axe still to grind. And plenty of edges have been sharpened in this fixture’s past, " Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said.

" We’ve shocked a lot of teams and a lot of teams have surprised us. The Blues are a less-familiar opponent, having played just once at Elland Road in the past 17 years," Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips said.

The only visit since the Whites’ relegation was a 5-1 League Cup quarter-final thrashing by the Blues in December 2012, though Neil Warnock’s men led 1-0 at the break.

Chelsea has not lost a match played in the Saturday 15.30Hrs schedule, home or away, since December 2019 at Everton. This season there have been lunchtime wins at home to Palace (4-0) and away to Newcastle (2-0), succeeded by last month’s 1-1 draw at Southampton.
