Welcome to Leeds vs Chelsea

Sitting in the relegation zone on goal difference, Leeds United welcome Chelsea to Elland Road this evening with three points a must for The Whites if they hope to keep their Premier League status next season.

With an FA Cup Final fixture with Liverpool looming on the weekend, Thomas Tuchel could be forgiven for resting some players in this game but due to a recent poor run of form, they are starting to look over their shoulder in third place in their bid to secure Champions League qualification.

Leeds have really struggled in the final stages of the Bielsa reign and now under new manager Jesse Marsch, to put a string of wins together and with their defence shipping goals they cannot be surprised by their current plight.

Leeds are without Luke Ayling for their remaining three fixtures following his red card against Arsenal.

This game comes too soon for Patrick Bamford to return but Liam Cooper may make his comeback from a knee injury.

Chelsea midfielders Jorgingho and Ngolo Kante face fitness tests but could be left out anyway with Saturday’s FA Cup Final in mind.

Callum Hudson-Odoi still remains on the sidelines also.
