Chelsea and Leeds United will meet at Stamford Bridge in London in the Premier League this weekend. The match is scheduled to start at 8pm UK time on Saturday.

Chelsea

Chelsea are doing well in the Premier League at the moment and are a real challenger for the league title this season. Frank Lampard’s team is third in the league standings at the moment with 19 points from 10 games, just two points behind Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, who are first and second respectively in the standings with 21 points.

The Blues will head into the game against Leeds on the back of a 4-0 hammering of Sevilla away from home in Spain in the Champions League. Chelsea played a goalless draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League last weekend.

Team teams:

Ben Chilwell suffered an ankle injury against Tottenham last weekend, but the England international left-back was part of the squad against Sevilla and should be a starter against Leeds.

Leeds United

Leeds United suffered back-to-back 4-1 losses to Crystal Palace and Leicester City ahead of the two-week international break and appeared to be struggling defensively. However, Marcelo Bielsa’s side have kept a clean sheet in their last two league games and appear to be back in shape.

The West Yorkshire side will head into the game against Everton after a 1-0 win over Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league. Whites are currently 12th in the Premier League table with 14 points from 10 games,
