It has been a difficult week for Chelsea as they got knocked off from the top of the table both domestically and in Europe. For Leeds, they will feel they could have done better in recent games. If they want to distinguish themselves from the relegation pack then a good performance is needed against the Londoners. This game becomes extra important for both teams as neither can afford to drop more points as we head into a busy Christmas period where every point counts.

CHELSEA

After going down 3-2 to West Ham in an epic London battle in the Premier League this season, Chelsea saw themselves drop from first to third in the Premier League standings. The Blues threw the lead twice to see their neighbors stage a dramatic comeback and take all 3 points. A few days later, Chelsea again threw the lead twice to end up drawing 3-3 with Zenit St Petersburg. This allowed Juventus to overtake them and finish as group leaders in the Champions League Group.

Coach Thomas Tuchel will welcome the return of Romelu Lukaku to the scoresheet and will also be pleased with Timo Werner’s performance in the last game (2 goals and 1 assist). However, serious improvement is needed in the defense, which has conceded an average of 2.33 goals per game in their last 3 games. A win here could potentially take Chelsea back to the top of the league table if Manchester City and Liverpool fail to win their games.

LEEDS UNITED

Leeds are playing well but too many draws mean that they are not taking maximum points from their games. have drawn 3 of their last 5 games, including a last-gasp equalizer against Brentford in their last game to draw 2-2. Ironically, their last match against Chelsea ended in a 0-0 draw, though Leeds would prefer to take all the three points in this encounter.

The big news from last weekend has to be the return of striker Patrick Bamford from long-term injury. He came on as a sub against and was in the right place to score the goal that rescued a point for the team. However, he suffered another hamstring injury and will not be available for this match. Coach Marcelo Bielsa will also miss the services of England international midfielder Kalvin Philips with a shoulder injury.

OUR BETTING TIP

Chelsea need a big performance to bounce back and return to their winning form that was seen earlier in the season. The forward-line is doing alright but the will need some defensive improvements. Nevertheless, the team still has what it takes to grind out an important win that will ensure they do not lose further ground in the title race.

Our football betting strategy are known to bring higher returns.

Leeds United need to score more goals in order to convert their many draws into wins. With only 15 goals in 15 games, an average of 1.00 goal per game is not enough. With top striker Patrick Bamford missing, this might not happen in this game. We foresee Chelsea winning with a margin of at least 2 goals.
