Chelsea will welcome Leeds United at Stamford Bridge this Saturday as both sides look to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Blues suffered a 2-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby recently. Similarly, the Whites were beaten by Fulham in the FA Cup by the same scoreline earlier this week.

Kepa Arrizabalaga can expect a busy afternoon based on Chelsea’s recent defensive record. Graham Potter will rely on Reece James to act as his primary playmaker in the Leeds half. The English talent would be instructed to whip in some dangerous crosses from the right flank.

Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz have to find a way to be more productive for the Blues in front of the opponent’s goal.

The midfield performance of Tyler Adams, Marc Roca and Weston McKennie could go a long way in determining the fate of this clash.

Georginio Rutter will be given the responsibility to lead the line well for Leeds in the final third. He has to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the visitors this weekend.
