Chelsea vs Leeds: Premier League preview and prediction

Fans will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since March for the clash, with 2,000 Blues supporters allowed in after London was placed in Tier 2 of the government’s coronavirus restrictions this week. 

Frank Lampard’s side currently sit two points behind both Tottenham and Liverpool, but with both sides not in action until Sunday they have the chance to reach the summit. 

Leeds, meanwhile, have impressed since their return to the top-flight and have been in good form since the international break, taking four points from games against Arsenal and Everton. 

Chelsea vs Leeds is scheduled for an 8:00pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, December 5, 2020.

The match will be held in front of a limited crowd of 2,000 fans at Stamford Bridge.

TV channel: Saturday’s match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League. 

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via SkyGo and the Sky Sports app.

For the first time this season, Frank Lampard has a fully fit squad to choose from, meaning he could name his strongest line-up for the first time. 

The Englishman’s main decision revolves around whether to start striker Olivier Giroud following his four-goal masterclass against Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek. 

Chelsea vs Leeds prediction: 3-1 home win

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have more than held their own against some top class opposition this season but Chelsea are just about the form team in the country right now.
