Chelsea vs Leeds United: The Premier League match between Chelsea and Leeds United is taking place on Saturday, December 11 at 08:45 PM Nepali time.
The Blues are now third in the table, while Marcelo Bielsa’s side is 15th after a 2-2 draw with Brentford last time out.
Chelsea’s stellar start to the season has since peaked, with just one win from their last four games in all competitions, and even that came against Watford, who gave them a run for their money.
Chelsea conceded three goals in the capital as West Ham United won 3-2 in a pulsating London derby after losing the lead twice in a 3-3 thriller with Zenit St Petersburg, forcing them to settle for second place in Champions League Group H. Chelsea vs Leeds United
Manchester City and Liverpool both took advantage of the Blues’ mistakes to leapfrog them in the table, with Chelsea now two points behind the table-topping Citizens and one point behind Liverpool in third place.
The Zenit thriller was Chelsea’s fifth game in a row with at least two goals, but Tuchel pulled no punches at the final whistle, seemingly enraged by his team’s ‘change in behavior’ while holding a slender lead.
Chelsea has also been held to draws at home by Burnley and Manchester United in recent Premier League games, but they have not played three consecutive top-flight stalemates on their own turf since the days of Guus Hiddink.
Leeds may not be losing as many games in the Premier League anymore, but their penchant for stalemates persists, and they had to rely on Patrick Bamford’s last-minute heroics to salvage a point against Brentford at Elland Road.
After Shandon Baptiste and Sergi Canos had canceled out Tyler Roberts’ opener, Bamford – making his first Premier League appearance in nearly three months due to a serious ankle injury – was in the right place at the right time to prod home and send the home crowd into a frenzy.

That point, however, has done little to help Leeds’ chances of escaping danger, as the Whites are 15th in the table with 16 points, six ahead of Burnley despite having played one more game than the 18th-placed side.
Bielsa’s side has now lost just one of their last seven Premier League matches, though that did come away to a London club in Tottenham Hotspur, and Leeds has not beaten the European champions since 1980.
Leeds held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Elland Road last season, but they lost 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in December 2020 and have only won one of their last ten meetings with the Blues, in the 2002-03 Premier League season.
