Chelsea will have the chance to go top of the Premier League when they host Leeds United this evening. Fans will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since March for the clash, with 2,000 Blues supporters allowed in after London was placed in Tier 2 of the government’s coronavirus restrictions this week.
Chelsea vs Leeds is scheduled for an 8:00pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, December 5, 2020.
Frank Lampard’s side currently sits two points behind both Tottenham and Liverpool, but with both sides not in action until Sunday they have the chance to reach the summit.
Leeds, meanwhile, have impressed since their return to the top-flight and have been in good form since the international break, taking four points from games against Arsenal and Everton.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
- Chelsea wins: 34
- Draws: 29
- Leeds wins: 39
- Last meeting: Leeds 1-5 Chelsea (December 19, 2012)
Chelsea’s Premier League form is good enough that Lampard can largely stick to what he has been using so far, which should mean returns for Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Thiago Silva, Reece James, Kurt Zouma and Chilwell after sitting out in midweek.
Leeds have Diego Llorente back available following a groin injury, but the Spain international will likely again be made to wait for his debut with Bielsa hinting that he would play for the Under-23s before he makes his first-team bow.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Ziyech, Giroud, Werner
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas; Raphinha, Klich, Phillips, Alioski; Harrison; Bamford
