Chelsea vs Leeds United Premier League Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Chelsea vs Leeds
English Premier League
Date: 4 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).

Chelsea extended their negative run to six consecutive winless games across competitions last Sunday when they fell 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Blues have failed to find the net in the third successive games in all competitions. They are struggling badly to create chances these days.

Graham Potter’s job is well on the line and he desperately needs to find a way to shift the team’s fortunes around before it’s too late.

Chelsea will have a nice chance to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they host relegation-threatened Leeds at Stamford Bridge.

Leeds did beat direct rivals Southampton in the last weekend’s six-pointer at Elland Road but they are miles away from the best form in general.

The Peacocks suffered their third defeat in the last four outings across competitions on Tuesday evening, falling 2-0 away at Fulham in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Leeds failed to score in three of the last four outings despite facing the likes of Everton and Fulham in two of these three affairs.

Since none of the last seven outings Chelsea have played in all competitions produced three or more goals, we are likely in for a low-scoring scenario on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea vs Leeds Head-to-head

  • Leeds lead the overall head to head tie by 10 wins, but they have a negative record at Stamford Bridge with only 10 wins in the previous 42 visits there.
  • The Blues will be extra motivated to try and get a revenge for the painful 3-0 loss they suffered in the first half of the season at Elland Road.
  • We have seen three or more goals scored in five of the last six head to head matches between Chelsea and Leeds.

Chelsea vs Leeds Prediction

The time has come for the high-scoring H2H trend to be terminated as neither Chelsea nor Leeds seem capable of scoring goals these days.

The Under 2.5 goals FT is a reasonable betting option at the odds of 1.90, especially if we know that the Blues have only scored two goals in the last seven fixtures in all competitions.

Chelsea vs Leeds Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.90 (9/10)
