Chelsea v Leeds betting tips and picks, odd is 2.43

Frank Lampard

Chelsea are in dominant form and starting to look like real contenders for the title as they remain undefeated in eight in the league. Their midweek demolition of Sevilla will have only boosted their confidence. Despite Leeds coming into the game off the back of a 1-0 win over Everton, we think the Blues will have too much for them on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s men demolished Sevilla 4-0 away from home in the Champions League on Wednesday, meaning the Blues haven’t lost a game since exiting the EFL Cup on penalties against Tottenham at the end of September.

In fact, Chelsea haven’t lost a match in normal time since Liverpool won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge 15 games ago in a run which has seen the Londoners climb to third in the Premier League table and secure their place in the Champions League knockout rounds.

They face an inconsistent but dangerous Leeds United side on Saturday, with Marcelo Bielsa’s men currently sat in 12th with 14 points from 10 games so far. The Whites have beaten Everton 1-0 and drawn 0-0 with Arsenal in their last two games, recovering well from consecutive 4-1 defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

  • Chelsea have won 7 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Chelsea have scored in both halves in 7 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Leeds haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 1999 (English Premier League).

Chelsea have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 7 home matches (all competitions).

Chelsea have won 3 of their last 4 matches (English Premier League).

Leeds have lost 2 of their last 4 matches (English Premier League).
