Head-to-Head


Leeds have a 40-38 advantage against Chelsea in 108 meetings with 30 draws.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea’s recent form has improved after losing just twice in their last nine matches. 

Mauricio Pochettino’s side beat Aston Villa 3-1 away in the FA Cup to start a mini-unbeaten run of four matches. Chelsea followed this result with a win over Crystal Palace (3-1) and draws with Man City (1-1) and Liverpool (0-0).

The Blues held Liverpool to an EFL Cup final draw before losing 1-0 after extra time. It was an even contest and Chelsea had 19-24 shots before conceding in the 118th minute.

Chelsea Injuries & Team News


Midfielders Lesley Ugochukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka and Romeo Lavia are out. 

Defenders Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile and Marc Cucurella are also ruled out. 

Leeds Form


Leeds are unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions and have won 10. 

The Whites’ two recent draws came against Plymouth (1-1) in the FA Cup. Daniel Farke’s side eventually progressed with a 4-1 win after extra time in the replay.

That result was followed by a four-match winning streak in the Championship, capped with a 3-1 comeback win over Leicester. Leeds trailed 1-0 after 15 minutes but late goals from Connor Roberts, Archie Gray and Patrick Bamford secured the victory.

Defender Pascal Struijk is out.

Verdict

Chelsea have shown some better defensive solidity in recent matches to compliment their dangerous attacking players. Pochettino will be desperate to keep the positive momentum going with a home cup win over Leeds.
