Chelsea vs Leeds United Analysis
All the pressure will be on Chelsea here, as they take on a Championship side in Leeds United.


It has been a very strange season for Chelsea, who have disappointed hugely with many Premier League betting sites but they have enjoyed some success in the cup competitions. Losing in the dying embers against Liverpool last time out will be killing Mauricio Pochettino, as his wait for a trophy as a manager goes on but he will be hoping that he can engineer some sort of FA Cup run this season and this won’t be an easy one against a confident Leeds side.

Team news: Robert Sanchez, Thiago Silva, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana and Reece James will all miss this one for Chelsea.

Chelsea Predicted Lineup:
Dorde Petrovic, Axel Disasi, Malo Gusto, Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill, Moises Caicedo, Conor Gallagher, Raheem Sterling, Enzo Fernandez, Cole Palmer & Christopher Nkunku.

Leeds United

Following their superb comeback win over Leicester City last weekend, Leeds United are firmly in the mix to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, at the first time of asking. The whites have managed to retain plenty of big names within their squad and whilst there is a clear gulf between the two sides, it is the FA Cup and with Leeds playing with plenty of swagger, they will certainly have a good go at Chelsea here.

Team news: Long term injury absentees Stuart Dallas and Pascal Struijk remain out of action for Leeds.

Leeds United Predicted Lineup:
Ivan Meslier, Archie Gray, Joe Rodon, Ethan Ampadu, Junior Firpo, Glenn Kamara, Connor Roberts, Wilfried Gnoto, Joel Piroe, Patrick Bamford & Daniel James.
