It’s all a bit congested at the top of the table, with Chelsea’s recent 3-2 defeat to London rivals West Ham knocking them down from first into third. Thomas Tuchel will be determined to ensure that result was just a mere blip and not the start of a worrying trend that could push them out of the title race.

Further cracks emerged in midweek as the Blues squandered another first-place position as their 3-3 draw with Zenit in the Champions League meant Juventus leapfrogged them into the top-seeded spot for Group H, so the reigning European champions will be eyeing up a response this weekend.

Leeds have proven a tricky customer under the ever-enigmatic and fastidiously sharp-witted Marcelo Bielsa, but there have been tell-tale signs of ‘second-season syndrome’ for the West Yorkshire club, with the Argentine’s side currently 15th in the table and only six points above the relegation places.

That considered, Leeds have suffered just one defeat in their previous seven Premier League games so there are certainly signs of life in Bielsa’s men, though the club’s recent record in the capital does not bode well for this weekend. In fact, Leeds have won just two of their last 32 away matches in London in all competitions.

Chelsea vs Leeds: Match Stats

Mason Mount is firmly on course to surpass his best ever Premier League goals tally for one season. In 2019/20, the England international struck seven times, while last season he hit the back of the net on six occasions. He has already amassed a five-goal haul. In fact, Mount has both scored and assisted a goal in three of his last four Premier League starts for Chelsea. The Ballon d’Or contender has the most league goals (nine) and assists (six) of any Chelsea player under Tuchel.

Of course, the Blues are just as succesful defensively as they are offensively. They’ve conceded the fewest number of goals this season of any club in the Premier League (nine), while their eight clean sheets in 15 games is a stat bettered only by Liverpool. That 3-2 reversal by West Ham was only the second time in 34 Premier League games under Tuchel that Chelsea have conceded two or more goals.
