Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction (3-4-2-1) at Leeds United


olivier giroud

With Tammy Abraham the lone Chelsea doubt against Leeds United on Saturday, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel can go all sorts of different ways with his first team selection. It’s likely he won’t select Christian Pulisic, because Tuchel admits that he only sees the American as a bench player.

He’s also only started one game under the new boss, and that was in the FA Cup. Another individual player we’re not picking for the first team is Timo Werner, who has really struggled massively this season.

With that in mind, both players are already being linked with summer moves away from Stamford Bridge.

Although that seems premature in both cases, especially so with the German, hey if it’s not working out, it’s not working out and everybody has to do what’s right for their own livelihoods.

It’s not “we’re all in this together,” as much as we constantly hear that sentiment these days. That said, let’s take a look at who might start for the southwest London club in the weekend fixture.

Chelsea Starting XI Prediction (3-4-2-1) at Leeds United: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Chillwell, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Hudson-Odoi; Giroud

Prediction: Chelsea 2, Leeds United 0

Marcelo Bielsa’s side is just a win or two away from securing their stay up in the top flight, but Tuchel’s wing back system is working to perfection right now, as they really rarely ever concede.

  1. Good new chelsea fc you are doing better ..there are something you need to do…for you to win leed …right side and lift side block it 7 and 11 both10 and 9…chelsea will bring out resuit….


    If the manager keeps saying rotation is necessary, why does it only happen in certain positions??? All positions should change from match, to match, in order to not make players frustrated, then want to move. When will Billy get his chance in midfield, every bit as good as Jorg, and Kove, but doesn’t get a look in. Wil lose him !!!!!
