Leeds vs Chelsea LIVE: Latest Premier League updates


2′ – Leeds 0-0 Chelsea

What a chance inside 60 seconds for Raheem Sterling. A brilliant foray from outside the channel, eluding several defenders and landing on his right foot – but then he steered his effort just wide of the far post. Meslier did not approach him.

Leeds try to come in with some fierce challenges in midfield early on. Dan James plays in support as Rodrigo, rated #9 today. A lot of fluidity, albeit at first.


1′ – Leeds 0-0 Chelsea

Kickoff! We are underway. Chelsea kick us off and there’s a great buzz in the crowd as we kick off.

Thomas Tuchel will want a response from his side after that late disappointment against Spurs.


Leeds vs Chelsea

Okay, we’re almost ready to go to Elland Road. A great game for both sides to bounce back from last week’s defeat.


Leeds vs Chelsea latest news

So, after yesterday’s plethora of games, here’s the state of play in the Premier League.

Leeds are seventh and Chelsea eighth, with the home side one place up today thanks to one more goal scored earlier this season. Positions still don’t mean too much, of course – but as a win would lift either club into second or third place (at least until Man City play later), there’s certainly a bit of added spice to be felt in the post-match celebrations .

A tie would put them up to fifth and sixth, or higher if the tie is a very high-scoring one.


Brendan Rodgers provides insight on Wesley Fofana amid Chelsea transfer speculation

Brendan Rodgers says Wesley Fofana was left out of the squad for Leicester’s defeat by Southampton because the Chelsea target was not in the right mood to play.

The 21-year-old defender was conspicuous by his absence from the team sheet as the Foxes looked to seal their first win of the season against winless Saints.

Fofana watches Saturday’s game with supporters at the King Power Stadium.


How to watch Leeds vs Chelsea online and on TV today

Leeds United and Chelsea meet in the Premier League on Sunday, with two sides who have had busy summers meeting at Elland Road.

The Blues’ takeover at the end of last year and subsequent spending on rebuilding Thomas Tuchel’s squad saw the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling added to the squad, while for Leeds it was a case of replacing two key departures.

Rafinha and Calvin Phillips were sold to Barcelona and Man City respectively and the likes of Brendan Aaronson, Marc Rocca and Rasmus Christensen were brought in to fill the gap.

Leeds v Chelsea: What happened last time?

It’s safe to say that the hosts will be looking for a much better encounter today than when the teams met last term.

It was right towards the end of the campaign – May 11 in fact, so technically just five league games ago – and it was a bit of a blow for Jesse Marsh’s men.

Dan James was sent off after just 24 minutes and Chelsea were already ahead through Mason Mount; Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku added to the scoreboard in a 3-0 win.

Having picked up a 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge in December when Leeds were still under Marcelo Bielsa, it meant a double for the Blues in this 21/22 fixture. Jorginho scored the winning goal in this game from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time.
