Chelsea drops two points in the top-four battle with a draw at Elland Road

By Xorkpe Sosu 3 Min Read

Leeds United have lost just one of their last nine Premier League home games against Chelsea (W5 D3), with this the first such meeting since a 1-1 draw in December 2003.

Chelsea is looking to secure their first league double over Leeds since the 1988-89 campaign in the second tier.

Chelsea made six changes from their win against Everton earlier in the week, as well as their formation.

Chilwell, Rudiger, Kante, Mount, Ziyech, and Pulisic return to the line-up, having all been named among the subs last time out, which only highlights the strength in depth available to Tuchel.


Bielsa made three changes to Leeds’ starting line-up following the loss to West Ham five days ago.

Captain Liam Cooper misses out today through injury, so played Struijk alongside Llorente in the heart of the back four. Klich and Costa drop to the bench, meanwhile, with Alioski and Harrison recalled to the first team.

Leeds, who draw level on points with Arsenal in 10th place faces Chelsea. Both teams ended up 0-0 after the end of 90mins at Elland Road!

Tuchel’s side is now three points better off than West Ham in fifth, though they have played two games more than both their London rivals and Everton, who are five points worse off.

Chelsea vs Leeds FC

Chelsea drops two points in the top-four battle with a goalless draw at Leeds.

The goal ruled out in 8mins after Havertz fails to connect with Pulisic’s cross and 17 seconds later the ball was in the net at the other end.

Bamford played clean through and squares for Roberts to tap into an empty net, but the offside flag goes up to cut short the celebrations.

Llorente also hit his own bar from the visitors’ best moment of a rather disappointing game. The closest either side came to a second-half winner was Rodrigo’s weak header 12 minutes from time.


Next up for Chelsea is a Champions League last-16 tie with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, while Leeds – now within two points of the top half – head to Fulham on Friday.
