team news

Leeds: Luke Ayling is out for the rest of the season on suspension following his red card against Arsenal. Stuart Dallas is also out for a long time after breaking his leg. Tyler Roberts, Adam Forshaw and Crysencio Summerville are also out of the picture, but Patrick Bamford could return soon.

Chelsea: Jorginho is out for a few matches, while N’Golo Kanté shouldn’t be taking any chances ahead of the FA Cup final. Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also out, while Marcos Alonso left midway through the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Malang Sarr, Saul Niguez, Andreas Christensen and Trevoh Chalobah could appear as Thiago Silva can be kept in shape for the final.

stories

Leeds: With a win in their last five games, the new coach’s jump under Marsch has dried up a bit. That said, two defeats were against Manchester City and Arsenal, while the Whites drew with Southampton, the only opponent in the lower half of the table. Chelsea are arguably their toughest opponents, so it could be that anything here is a bonus and that Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as Brentford, could be more realistic sources of survival points.

Chelsea: With just one win in their last five, Tuchel’s side have an FA Cup final against Liverpool and Leicester City and relegated Watford to come. The acquisition process has dragged on and will undoubtedly impact their form towards the end of the season, but with light at the end of the tunnel, a final flourish to close out the campaign could secure Champions League football and maybe even some additional trophies.

Prediction

This one will likely be tight, but visitors should come out on top. A draw wouldn’t be a big surprise, but a clean sheet looks highly unlikely for the home team. Marsch and his men will need points elsewhere and possibly favors from others to avoid the fall. Choice: Leeds 1, Chelsea 2.
