Leeds vs. Chelsea: to climb to the top

The action continues in the Premier League and one of the most exciting tournaments on the continent once again proves that it lives up to the hype. Indeed, matchday three promises to be talked about with clashes between the powerful like next Sunday when Leeds host Chelsea at Elland Road.

On the one hand, the Peacocks want to forget forever about fighting to maintain the category and after two disputed days they remain at the top of the standings, despite being one of the candidates to fight in the lower zone according to the sports predictions.

For their part, The Blues want to leave behind the bad taste in their mouths left by the draw at home against Tottenham. To do this, he must keep all three points on his visit to Elland Road to climb to the top of the table.

The departure of Marcelo Bielsa at the head of the team still hurts. It is that the Argentine technical director knew how to leave a marked mark among the fans, but it was a wise decision considering that the team no longer responded and flirted dangerously with relegation.

Since the arrival of Jesse Marsch, the Peacocks once again demonstrated hierarchy in all lines and moments of good football that allowed them to avoid relegation in extremis last season.

After the lesson learned, Leeds now wants to avoid the ordeal of suffering for the bottom of the standings and for this they must add as many points as they can. So far, Leeds has collected four units as a result of a win and a draw in the Premier League in two disputed days where they have scored four goals and conceded three goals.

It is worth remembering that Leeds had a very good preseason to prepare in the best way for their debut in the Premier League. In warm-up friendlies, Leeds thrashed Blackpool 4-0, drew 1-1 against Crystal Palace and thrashed Cagliari 6-2.

Already in the Premier League, the Peacocks surprised sports forecasts and beat Wolves 2-1 in a confrontation that left very good football sensations and excited fans for the second half. For its part, on the second day Leeds rescued a good draw on their visit to Southampton after a deserved 2-2 that allows them to remain one of the undefeated in the Premier League.

Last Chelsea matches

Thomas Tuchel is not at all satisfied with his team so far this season. Although he has players of hierarchy in all lines and is one of the clear favorites in sports betting to fight for the title, the results were not as expected.

It is clear that the demand on Chelsea is equivalent to that made on the most powerful such as Liverpool and Manchester City. And this is because Tuchel and his team proved to be the best in Europe in the 2020-2021 season where they were crowned champions after a tight 1-0 in the final against Manchester City.

However, after that glorious victory, the team was never the same, losing one of its main footballing arguments, which was defensive solidity. So far, Chelsea remains at the top, although outside the qualifying zone for the next edition of the Champions League with four points after a win and a draw.

On the opening day, Chelsea narrowly defeated Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park. On Matchday 2, Tuchel's Blues had another top-tier clash in the derby against Tottenham that left much to analyze after the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Background between both

Leeds and Chelsea played 84 meetings in the Premier League with 26 wins for the Blues, 22 draws and 36 wins for the Peacocks. Likewise, at Elland Road they met 42 times with a clear local dominance of Leeds with 26 wins, 11 draws and just five away wins for Chelsea in all history.

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to sports betting is that the last duel between the two at Elland Road was a 3-0 win over Chelsea during the Premier League last season.

The magnifying glass on…

All the hopes of the fans are pinned on the goalscoring contribution of Rodrigo who has accumulated three goals in the tournament and is Leeds' top scorer in the Premier League. Also, Bamford and Meslier can lose level at any time.

Reece James, Jorginho and Koulibaly each scored a goal and are Chelsea's top scorers in the Premier League.

Regarding the double chance, Leeds or draw offer 2.37, draw or Chelsea 1.14 and Leeds or Chelsea 1.22. On the other hand, if both teams convert, the amount to be received will be 1.80, while the 1-1 tie is the favorite result with a price of 8.50.

On the other hand, an interesting combination is that of Leeds 1-0 at halftime and final result whose quota is 26.00. Finally, the Premier League predictions have Borja as the favorite, whose first or last goal in the match offers 5.50, while Rodrigo Moreno's goal at any time has a price of 5.50.
