Chelsea v Leeds team news

Chelsea: Ben Chilwell was rested for Chelsea’s midweek game with Sevilla due to a turned ankle but could come back into the XI here. Christian Pulisic may keep his place after returning from a hamstring issue on Wednesday.

Billy Gilmour could well make an appearance off the bench, while Lampard will make a decision on starting Olivier Giroud after the France international bagged all four goals in Seville.

Leeds: Pablo Hernandez may still be sidelined for this weekend’s clash, while Diego Llorente is yet to make an appearance for his new side.

Winger Jack Harrison is the big injury concern for Bielsa but Rodrigo could come into the XI if the Manchester City loanee doesn’t pass a fitness test. Patrick Bamford and Raphinha should again provide most of the attacking danger.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Leeds

Chelsea cruised to victory over Sevilla in midweek but will have to be wary of Leeds’ attacking prowess on Saturday. The game could come down to who wins the midfield battle, with N’Golo Kante likely to press Leeds distributor Kalvin Phillips.

Chelsea have blown hot and cold up front so far this term, while Leeds have kept it tight over their last two outings.

We can expect chances on Saturday but possibly not too many goals. The likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz could nudge the game in Chelsea’s favour, but Leeds can’t be overlooked.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Leeds
