Chelsea vs Leeds Prediction: Last Match Analysis

Chelsea: It was a heartbreak for Chelsea to get robbed of all three points in the last match against Tottenham. The Blues took the lead twice in the game but couldn’t win the match. Harry Kane’s equalizer in the 6th minute of the stoppage ended the match without a winner. The way Tuchel was rotating his men at the back to create empty spaces for the midfielders was just brilliant. However, a good response from the Spurs didn’t allow the Blues to secure a win.

Leeds United: Two back-to-back goals from Rodrigo Moreno were not enough to seal the deal for Leeds united as Southampton were determined to avoid a home loss. Jesse Marsch quoted after the match that the result is a bitter pill to swallow. The defense seemed to fail under pressure for the Peacocks.
