Chelsea welcome Leeds to Stamford Bridge in a thrilling Premier League fixture on Saturday evening.

The Blues are amid a fantastic run of form, with a stunning 4-0 victory against Seville in the Champions League sustaining their momentum, despite Frank Lampard heavily rotating his squad.

Chelsea enter the weekend just two points adrift of leaders Liverpool and Tottenham, with 19 points from their 10 games and just a single defeat.

Meanwhile, Leeds are in high spirits, too, with new signing Raphina scoring a dramatic late winner against Everton at Goodison Park.

Chelsea are set to have a full squad at their disposal, with Ben Chilwell expected to start despite a knock suffered during the week. Olivier Giroud is pushing for a starting spot after scoring four goals against Seville.

Prediction

Frank Lampard’s side are currently in a tremendous vein of form, with their defence increasingly hard to breach and confidence only growing as their attack gels and flourished. Although Leeds will provide a very stern test of those credentials, Chelsea could produce yet another impressive performance. Chelsea 3-1 Leeds
