Chelsea v Leeds: match preview

·1-min read

After a hot start Leeds have scored only three in their past four and goals are likely to be at a premium again coming up against Chelsea’s dominant defence. Frank Lampard’s once flimsy unit are transformed with eight clean sheets in 10 and Oliver Giroud could spearhead the attack after scoring four against Sevilla. Marcelo Bielsa’s side could struggle to cope. Graham Searles
