One of the fiercest rivalries in English football returns this week, as Chelsea travels to Elland Road in order to take on hosts Leeds in the ongoing season of the Premier League.
After losing 2 consecutive matches, a recently promoted Leeds United is threatened by another relegation. After facing a humiliating 4-0 defeat against the Citizens at home, Leeds traveled to the Emirates Stadium last weekend, to play against another London club, Arsenal.
While most football betting sites had predicted a difficult task for the visitors, Leeds was stunned by a brace by Eddie Nketiah within the first 10 minutes of the game. While they did strike back through a goal from Llorente in the 66th minute, a 10 men Leeds was no match for the Gunners and dropped points for the second time in as many matches.
Leeds are now in the bottom 3, on the 18th spot, with 34 points. With just 3 more matches to play, the Whites need to win this one bring their heads above water, and move ahead of Burnley and Everton.
Playing its first game after an ownership change, Chelsea again dropped points last weekend, playing a 2-2 draw against the Wolverhampton Wanderers. After a goalless first half, Romelu Lukaku netted twice within a span of 3 minutes, to put the home team in command. However, they could not hold on to the lead for long. Francisco scored for the visitors within two minutes of coming off the bench, and Conor Coady restored parity on the scored board 7 minutes into the stoppage time, to give Chelsea a third consecutive finish without a win.
The reigning European Champions have been less than ideal this season, and are barely holding on to the third spot on the points table, with a 5-point lead over 5th placed Tottenham. With the FA Cup finals against Liverpool coming up this weekend, it is important for Chelsea to get some winning momentum in this game.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Leeds United F. C. vs Chelsea F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Elland Road Stadium, Leeds, on 11th May 2022.
Thomas Tuchel will be a disappointed man, after crashing out in the Champions League quarterfinals, well as failing to keep his team in the hunt for the English title. Nevertheless, he will be playing to regain some of his lost glory, as he takes on the field for his last 3 matches of the season. Ben Chilwell, Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, and N’Golo Kante are all set to miss out on this match due to fitness issues, while Marcos Alonso may be benched after his report argument with the coach during the game against the Wolves.
As for the home team, Ayling is out for the rest of the season due to a suspension, while Stuart Dallas is also unlikely to return for the remainder of the matches. Adam Forshaw, Crysencio Summerville, and Tyler Roberts are doubtful due to injuries.
While Chelsea’s recent form has left a lot to be desired, they are capable of bouncing back, and this is the apt occasion for them to do so, especially before the trip to Wembley.
5 of the last 7 matches between the two clubs, played across competitions, have seen both the teams score. Chelsea has conceded in 4 of its last 5 Premier League games, and the hosts are likely to exploit their defensive weaknesses.
3 of the last 4 games between the two teams have produced more than 2.5 goals by the time the final whistle blew. Leeds has conceded 74 goals this season, the second-most by a club, after Norwich. We expect the visitors to score freely, and take the final tally above 2.5.
