Things aren’t going well for Graham Potter at Chelsea and each game feels like it could be the last before the board finally have enough. The Blues are winless in six games across all competitions since a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in January with three draws and three defeats.
The three defeats have come consecutively going into this game, and the Blues are now looking to avoid losing four games in a row for the first time since October and November 1993 when they lost six straight matches. Chelsea haven’t lost four in a row without scoring since March 1929. But it isn’t just a poor run of form. After winning their first three Premier League games under Graham Potter, Chelsea have now won just two of their last 15 matches and sit closer to the relegation zone than the top four.
Leeds recently made the bold call to sack Jesse Marsch as they find themselves embroiled in a close relegation battle, and they will be hoping to reap the rewards. The Yorkshire club took their time in finding a replacement, drawing with Manchester United before losing to the Red Devils and Everton in the league.
But they finally found their man last week, appointing Javi Gracia and the former Watford man got off to a winning start with a 1-0 victory over Southampton which lifted Leeds from 19th to 17th. They did lose to Fulham in the FA Cup in midweek but that will allow them to fully focus on the Premier League, just one point clear of the drop zone with 14 games left to play.

Chelsea vs Leeds match stats
As mentioned, Chelsea have failed to score in their last three matches across all competitions, and the Blues are seriously struggling in front of goal. Across the league campaign as a whole, Chelsea have managed just 23 goals, their lowest tally at this stage of a season since 1993/94.
Kai Havertz is struggling in front of goal this season and often cuts a frustrated figure on the pitch, mimicking the Chelsea fans watching him. Unfortunately for the German, he is fouling at a more consistent rate than he is shooting, averaging 2.21 fouls per 90 minutes in the Premier League this season – with 2.15 shots per 90.
