Leeds vs Chelsea: Predictions
It has long been a criticism of Marcelo Bielsa’s sides that they tend to run out of steam in the latter stages of a season and that appears to be happening to his Leeds United outfit right now. After their defeat at West Ham United last weekend, the Whites have now lost four of their last five games in the Premier League.
However, the Argentinian head coach still has his team sitting in a comfortable 11th position in the table and we have seen glimpses of their capabilities even despite this poor run, particularly in the 3-0 home win over Southampton. Even in poor form, they remain one of the most expansive and exciting teams in the division.
Although Chelsea’s results have improved since Thomas Tuchel came in, the same can’t be said of them being expansive and exciting. Not that Blues fans will mind one bit as they have gone 11 games under their new boss without tasting defeat and clambered into the top four as a result of that improved form.
Having deservedly beaten reigning champions Liverpool at Anfield last week, the Londoners then followed up with another win over Merseyside opponents at the weekend with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Stamford Bridge. Can they strengthen that position within the top four with three more points here?
Leeds vs Chelsea: Match Stats
Timo Werner isn’t afraid to take a shot at goal, as his Premier League 2020/2021 shot map shows.
Leeds are struggling for goals at the moment. After the defeat to West Ham last time out, Bielsa’s charges have failed to score in three of their last four games, losing all three. Given that Chelsea have managed no fewer than nine clean sheets in just 11 games under Thomas Tuchel, we anticipate another win to nil for the Blues here.
Timo Werner hasn’t had the prolific season he was hoping for at Chelsea, but it isn’t for a want of trying. The German has averaged over 2 shots per game and had four attempts at goal in the win over Newcastle last time out. Given that Leeds concede an average of 14.2 shots per match, the fourth-highest in the division, expect Werner to cause them problems here.

Chelsea ran out comfortable 3-1 winners when these two sides last met in December, despite former Blues academy product Patrick Bamford putting Leeds ahead in the fifth minute. This will be the Blues first Premier League trip to Elland Road since December 2003, when the sides played out a 1-1 draw.
