Leeds vs Chelsea: Premier League – LIVE!

Chelsea travel to face Leeds at Elland Road tonight needing a win to help get the club’s form heading back in the right direction.

A last-gasp header from Conor Coady gave Wolves a 2-2 at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, as Chelsea threw away a two-goal lead. Thomas Tuchel have won just two of their last seven Premier League matches.

With Arsenal just a point behind the Blues and Tottenham four points further back, a top-four finish is not yet a certainty for Chelsea. With an FA Cup final to come on Saturday, a positive performance and result tonight would come at an ideal time.

They face a Leeds side though who are desperately in need of points themselves. Leeds sit in the relegation zone with three matches to go and it is sure to be an incredible atmosphere in front of their home fans.

Leeds team news

Leeds head into the game in terrible shape. Already low on numbers after pretty much a season-long injury crisis, Luke Ayling’s ridiculous red card away at Arsenal rules him out for the rest of the campaign.

Patrick Bamford, Tyler Roberts, Adam Forshaw, Crysencio Summerville and Stuart Dallas are already out of action, though captain Liam Cooper should return after missing the games against Arsenal and Manchester City with a knee issue.
