Leeds United vs Chelsea: Prediction and Betting Tips

12:30, Mar 14 2021
Leeds vs Chelsea prediction for Saturday’s round 28 of Premier League at Elland Road in Leeds. Leeds at 11th place with 35 points host Chelsea at 4th place with 50 points. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Leeds defense must improve

With just two draws all season, Leeds United have either lost or won their last 18 matches. Only West Brom and Crystal Palace have conceded more goals than them with 46 goals an average of 1.7 goals per match.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa has a very promising squad especially in attack, as The Peacocks have scored 43 goals this season, making them the seventh-best scoring team in the Premier League. Bielsa has to fix their defensive problems though if he wants better results.

In their last game, Leeds lost away to West Ham 2-0 despite having much better ball possession with 65% and more goal attempts with 17. This shows their vulnerability in defense and it needs to be fixed.

Chelsea on a high level

Since Thomas Tuchel took charge at Chelsea in late January, The Blues have not lost a match in all competitions, 11 to be exact. The German could add the one thing that was missing with the team before and that is holding on to a lead in a match.

Chelsea had five 1-0 wins in the 11 matches Tuchel was in charge and that shows how well The Blues are defending and can secure a lead in a game.

Tuchel has improved the team’s overall performance as we could see in the last match against Everton, where Chelsea had 65% of possession. This dominance in the game reflected on the goal attempts as The Blues had 19 goal attempts, 43 dangerous attacks, and 713 passes.

Key Stats

  • Leeds have lost three of their last five home matches
  • Leeds have scored in three of their last five home matches
  • Chelsea have not lost in their last five away matches
  • Chelsea have scored in all of their last five away matches


Leeds vs Chelsea Prediction

The difference in form between these teams is quite big. Leeds have lost their last two games and Chelsea are undefeated in nine games in the Premier League. Chelsea has kept four clean sheets in the last five games while Leeds have kept just one in five matches at home.

Looking at their recent form, Chelsea shouldn’t have any difficulty in winning this game. The bookies are favoring an away win with an odd of 1.75. That looks a good deal and we are backing it.
