Hello and welcome to today’s live blog when Chelsea host Leeds United.
Thomas Tuchel’s team will be looking to get back on the winning track after a 3-2 loss to West Ham that has dropped them in first place. They also return to Premier League action after a 3-3 draw with Zenit St Petersburg in their Champions League match on Wednesday.
Leeds are on the hunt for their first league win of the month. More recently, Marcelo Bielsa’s team drew 2-2 against Brentford.
Chelsea vs Leeds team news
Chelsea will be left without Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell but will see the return of Jorginho. In his pre-game press conference, Tuchel also confirmed that Reece James will start as a winger. The 22-year-old played in midfield on Wednesday night against Zenit.
Leeds continue to fight injuries and will run out of key figures once again. Robin Koch, Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper are not available. Patrick Bamford, who made his comeback during last Sunday’s game against Brentford, is not guaranteed to play as his hamstring injury is subject to a daily evaluation. Rodrigo is also a doubt.
