CHELSEA VS LEEDS PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
The recent defeat did not dim Chelsea’s impressive performance from the beginning of the season. They maintain extremely stable form as well as show class in the 4-0 win against Juventus or 3-0 against Leicester. In Tuchel’s second season at the helm, The Blues is second in scoring, ahead of Man City. In the past 15 rounds, the strikers contributed 35 goals, averaging 2.33 goals per game. The statistics are even better at home, the performance is up to 2.6 as well as the beating Aston 3-0 or Norwich 7-0. With class as well as outstanding scoring performance, this is an opportunity for Chelsea to return with a jubilant victory.
Leeds has to work hard to improve to 15th place in the Premier League, one of the problems is that the game is too loose. 15 matches scored 15 goals but conceded 22 times, each away game received 1.6 goals. The ability to attack under Bielsa has always been highly appreciated, but it is difficult to put hope on Leeds’ downline. Especially after the heavy defeats 1-5 on the field of MU or the reverse 1-2 defeat against Tottenham. The opponent this time is Chelsea, the task of limiting goals is still a huge question mark.
All have quality strikers, but the Leeds defense has too many problems, it will be very adventurous to choose faint. The last time they met at Stamford Bridge, there were 4 goals scored, 4/5 recent Chelsea matches also ended with a great score.
Select: Over 2.75 FT.

On the contrary, Chelsea is still very different with the last 12/13 matches unbeaten, including 9 victories. Not to mention the screen beating Juventus 4-0 or Norwich 7-0 at Stamford Bridge. Winning by 2 goals for Tuchel’s students was a wise choice.
Select: Chelsea FT.
European odds are highly appreciated by the host to win. Chelsea’s class as well as outstanding strength in attack deserve to be trusted. The possibility that Leeds has a very low score when looking at the defense and the away record is too bad.
Select: Chelsea FT.
