EPL OUTSTANDING GAME PREVIEW: Leeds United vs Chelsea

More outstanding games will be going down today in the EPL as we gradually approach the end of this season:

  • Leicester City versus Norwich City,
  • Watford versus Everton, and
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers versus Manchester City.

However, the game between Leeds United and Chelsea seems to be the most promising of them all.

Anything short of a win for any of these 2 sides could be disastrous to their respective goals.

Since we now know how important this game is, let’s proceed to see facts favoring either team getting the precious win they both crave for

EPL (Leeds United)

Home Advantage(Head To Head): One huge point favoring the Peacocks.

Although Chelsea look superior if we compare the overall head to head, they have however failed to leave Elland Road with a win in their last 3 EPL visits.

All 3 visits have ended in 2 draws and 1 win for the Peacocks, making it a haunted ground for the Blues.

You can bet Jesse Marsch and his men will be looking to feed on this trend.

Do you have a different opinion?

EPL Survival: A much bigger fact that will certainly provide huge motivation for the Peacocks.

Currently seated in 18th position due to a worse Goal difference compared to Burnley’s, getting a win is the only hope they, Leeds, have of leaving the Relegation zone.

Anything short of a win, and if both Burnley and Everton get a win in their respective games, could be disastrous to their survival.

I really expect them to come into this with so much hunger for a win, don’t you?

Now let’s turn our focus to Thomas Tuchel’s side

EPL (CHELSEA)

Top 4 Finish: While not relegating to the Championship is the focus of the Peacocks playing in the Champions League is the utmost goal of the Blues.

With both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur taking on each other tomorrow, 2 teams that are also looking to claim UCL spots, Chelsea will be looking to get a win today at all cost

A win today for the Blues will be very crucial in clinching a UCL spot as it is certain one of Arsenal or Tottenham, if not both, will drop points tomorrow.

I hope you now see why they, Chelsea, will be highly motivated to get a win tonight, don’t you?

EPL Away Performance: Another massive point for the Blues.

Although the potency of this point has been reduced after Chelsea dropped 5 points in their last 2 away games, it can’t be overlooked either.

The Blues are currently rank 3rd in the EPL when considering how each team in the EPL have performed playing away from home.

Furthermore, they’ve won 3 of their last 5 EPL away games.

The 2 points above clearly show how good they are playing on away soil, and how high their chances of getting a point today is.

I don’t think you will be surprised if they leave Elland road with a point, will you?

CONCLUSION

Judging from the points above, I believe Chelsea can get a win tonight

However, I feel a draw is the likeliest outcome we will get at the end of this tie.

What’s your take guys?
