    Our worst away record is at Leeds, and both teams have battered each other on many meetings over the years.
    Not expecting a "red card fest" ( unless Mike Dean is in charge ), but this could be a cracking game given Leeds current "flat to the boards" style. They are pretty quick and aggressive in attack, so I think we might see some fresh legs this game. Mind you Audi always surprises.
    So
    Mendy
    Dave Silva Zouma
    James Kante Jorginho Chilwell
    Werner Havertz Mount

    Subs Gilmour needs some game time, Pulisic more than 2 mins, Abraham a fair go. Dave and Alonso get a bench rest.
    PS just changed Christensen for Silva and Kovacic for Jorginho, realised Jorginho and Mount banned midweek game, so both should play Leeds. Also swapped out CHO and put in Dave, again I think mid week will be quite different

    Can't see anything other than a 2-0 Chelsea win.

    Leeds are gonna come n come n come but I dont think they have the quality to break us down to be honest.

    Silva and Abraham are out injured and will not feature, Leeds are not on their best form of late so we should win this, if Werner does not score against them then there may be no hope for him.

    Weird game, so many chances and half chances at both ends, both sides saved by the bar, some good attacking play and some last ditch defence.
    Thought Ziyech showed more promise, Havertz got involved, Stilwell just doesn't convince me. The rest all worked hard and the scoreline was pretty fair to both sides.

    Leeds are unrelenting, from the first whistle to the final, just give you no time to think on the ball.

    His subs were all slightly strange, even if only the time they got. Welshie is spot on, Leeds were unrelenting and snapped at heels all game long. Mount did look pretty buggered to be fair, he might have been pulled for his own good cause he just won't stop. That point was certainly hard earned.
