Chelsea are set to face Leeds United at Elland Road on Wednesday night, looking to take the three points on the away encounter. The Whites come into the match on the back of an embarrassing 1-2 defeat at the hands of Arsenal, whereas the Blues remained grounded at 2-2 with Wolves.

Team News

The Blues remain bedevilled by injury concerns as of late, with Jorginho out and Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi keeping each other company in the treatment room. Moreover, Marcos Alonso was taken off at halftime against Wolves and was reportedly involved in a heated row with Tuchel in the dressing room.

Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation; however, he is expected to make a couple of changes for the upcoming contest. N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva will surely not be risked with the FA Cup final in mind.

3-4-3 Chelsea Predicted Lineup Vs Leeds United

Defence

Edouard Mendy is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Senegalese shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet.

Andreas Christensen could start at the heart of the Blues’ backline, whereas Antonio Rudiger should feature at the left centre-back spot. Trevor Chalobah would fulfil the right centre-back position.

Thaigo Silva will have to take to the bench looking to rest ahead of the FA Cup final.

Midfield

Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek might fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the former occupying a more central role. The pair would be looking to dominate the midfield proceedings.

Malang Sarr features in place of Marcos Alonso at the left wing-back position, whereas Reece James will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The duo would be expected to stretch Chelsea’s attacks in the opposition half.

N’Golo Kante will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the latter stages of the game if needed.

Attack

Timo Werner and Mason Mount will slot into the attacking midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the front-men.

Romelu Lukaku might lead the line for Chelsea in the midweek. The 22-year-old striker will be hoping to find the back of the net when he faces off against the Whites defence that conceded seven goals in their last five league matches.
