             Team News

For the first time since the start of the season, Frank Lampard’s side doesn’t have a single injury concern to deal with. The return of Billy Gilmour was the one thing that Chelsea fans had been eagerly waiting for, and now that the young Scot has made his way back into the team as well, the manager has a full roster to choose his eleven from.

Idolized legendary spymaster general Marcelo Bielsa got Leeds United back into the top flight by winning the Championship last season, and they’ve gotten off to a decent start with four wins in their first ten games, three of which have come away from home including last weekend’s 1-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park. Unsurprisingly, given Bielsa’s tactics and style, Leeds have conceded more goals than they have scored; only Fulham and West Brom have conceded more in fact.

                 FACTS

  1. Chelsea won their last meeting with Leeds in all competitions, winning 5-1 at Elland Road in a League Cup tie in December 2012. This will be the first league meeting between the sides since a 1-0 win for the Blues at Stamford Bridge in May 2004.
  2. Leeds have lost their last three Premier League away games against Chelsea (between 2002-2004), as many as they’d lost in their first nine in the competition at Stamford Bridge (W2 D4 L3).
  3. Leeds have won just one of their last 21 away league games against London sides (D6 L14), beating QPR 3-1 in December 2017. In the top-flight, the Whites have lost their last four games in the capital by an aggregate score of 1-12.
  4. Of all Premier League sides to have played in more than one season, Chelsea have the best win rate in home games against promoted sides (82% – 68 wins in 83 games). Indeed, the Blues have lost just three such matches in the competition – 0-2 vs Nottingham Forest in January 1995, 0-1 vs Charlton in April 2001 and 0-1 vs Bournemouth in December 2015.
  5. Only Tottenham (9) are on a longer current unbeaten run in the Premier League than Chelsea (8), while no side has kept more clean sheets than the Blues in the division this term (5).
