Chelsea had been sitting pretty on top of the EPL table for the last couple of months until they ventured across London to face West Ham. A shock 3-2 home win for the Hammers sent Chelsea tumbling down to third, with both Manchester City and Liverpool overtaking Thomas Tuchel’s men. 

A midweek Champions League draw with Zenit, which resulted in the club qualifying in second from their group, has added to the club’s recent frustrations of only winning one in their last four. Things certainly haven’t reached crisis point yet, and The Blues are still very much in the title fight and through to the knockout stages of the CL — but a convincing win against Leeds would go a long way to quelling a slightly nervous fanbase.

The good news for Chelsea is that star striker Romelu Lukaku may have finally found his shooting boots again. He scored a much-needed goal in midweek, after failing to find the net in any of his last 10 Chelsea appearances. He’ll certainly be hungry for more, especially as his last league goal came against Aston Villa on September 11 — though he's only on the bench here.

Leeds United have suffered from second-season syndrome over the last few months. After tearing up the league last year, so far this season they’ve languished in touching distance of the relegation zone, looking a shadow of the team that played such attractive and positive football in 2020/21. 

Thankfully for the side's loyal fanbase, the team’s fortunes have started to turn in recent weeks. The Whites have taken five points from their last three games, including nicking a point from Brentford last week with a last-minute equalizer. Belisa still has much work to do, but Leeds are once again looking comfortable at this level.  

Here's how they line up:

Leeds United: Meslier, Shackleton, Ayling, Llorente, Firpo, Raphinha, Dallas, Forshaw, Roberts, Harrison, James.

Chelsea: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Alonso, Werner, Havertz, Mount.
