PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
ABOUT THE MATCH
Leeds United is going head to head with Chelsea starting on 21 Aug 2022 at 13:00 UTC at Elland Road stadium, Leeds city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Leeds United and Chelsea square off at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon with both clubs having remained unbeaten from their opening two Premier League fixtures.
However, the Yorkshire and West London clubs were both guilty of giving up leads in their last outings, something which will provide added motivation ahead of the showdown at the weekend.
While head coach Thomas Tuchel was quick to praise the performance of his Chelsea side against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, the German was left ruing more clear-cut chances being missed by his team.
The Blues did not necessarily create a hatful of opportunities, but they had enough to put the game to bed before Harry Kane‘s last-gasp equaliser in controversial circumstances.
Tuchel’s heated exchanges with Antonio Conte dominated the conversations after the game, the pair now having to spend a game away from the dugouts as a result of their red cards.
Nevertheless, Tuchel and his players should be relatively content with their start to the campaign, particularly as they continue to contend with a tough opening to the season.
Tuchel will want to see a goal from an attack-minded player at Elland Road with their strikes so far coming from the penalty spot, a corner and a smart finish from wing-back Reece James.
Meanwhile, Bamford has suggested that he will miss this game with a minor groin injury, although the forward has hinted that he could return before the end of the month.
Daniel James, who was sent off in the corresponding fixture last season, is likely to take his place in the attack, and that could prove to be the only change to the Leeds XI.
The likes of Junior Firpo, Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas all remain on the sidelines.
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Llorente, Struijk; Roca, Adams; Aaronson, Rodrigo, Harrison; James
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Cucurella; Mount, Sterling; Havertz
