Chelsea predicted the line-up against Leeds

7

Chelsea welcome Leeds to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League as they aim to put the disappointment of last weekend’s defeat to West Ham behind them.

The Blues moved from the top of the table when they gave up a 2-1 lead at half time at London Stadium when Jarrod Bowen and Arthur Masuaku turned the development for the Hammers.

Chelsea’s defensive problems persisted since the middle of the week when they were held by Zenit in a 3-3 draw in Russia, which allowed Juventus to skip them to the top spot in their Champions League group.

This is how the Blues could line up.

Antonio Rudiger (CB) – A fan favorite at Stamford Bridge with his old-fashioned type of defense, although he seems confident of leaving the club.

Romelu Lukaku (ST) – Injuries have disrupted the Belgian’s season, although this weekend could prove to be a good opportunity to get back on track in the Premier League.

Timo Werner (LW) – Neted twice in a draw in Russia in the middle of the week and his move could disrupt Leeds’ defense.
