Chelsea will clash with Leeds United as they travel to Elland Road this weekend on Sunday afternoon, hoping to clinch all three points. The Blues were held off to a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur even though they fought hard, so they will be looking to turn things around. Similarly, the Whites come into the match on the back of a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Southampton.
Thomas Tuchel will return to using the 3-4-3 formation and having three men up front. The German tactician will be making the necessary changes to secure a win this weekend.
Chelsea 3-4-3 Predicted Line Up To Face Leeds United
Edouard Mendy is expected to operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Senegalese shot-stopper would hope to perform well and secure a clean sheet in the next fixture. Thiago Silva will form the centre-half partnership alongside Kalidou Koulibaly and Cesar Azpilicueta to form the three-man backline.
With N’Golo Kante suffering from an injury and being sidelined for a few weeks, Jorginho will have to step up and be an integral part of Tuchel’s midfield. Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also feature in the holding midfield position alongside Jorginho to distribute the ball effectively and create enough chances in the final third.
Reece James will feature in the right-wing back position hoping to stretch the opposition, while Marc Cucurella will operate on the opposite flank to provide support from the wide areas.
Kai Havertz and Mason Mount will slot into the attacking midfield roles as they look to create some clear-cut goal-scoring chances in the attacking third.
Raheem Sterling will lead the line as he fancies his chances of finding the back of the net if the Blues hope to clinch all three.
