Chelsea take on Leeds in a tantalising Premier League late kick-off on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s side are amid a fantastic run of form, with a heavily rotated side showing no signs of weakness in a brilliant 4-0 victory against Seville in the Champions League during the week.

The Blues head into the weekend just two points adrift of leaders Liverpool and Tottenham, with 19 points from their 10 games, and have a title challenge firmly within their sights.

Leeds will provide a tricky test of the Blues’ reinforced defence, though, with impressive new signing Raphinha scoring a late winner against Everton last week.

What is the team news?

Chelsea are set to have a full squad at their disposal, with Ben Chilwell expected to start despite a knock suffered during the week. Olivier Giroud is pushing for a starting spot after scoring four goals against Seville.

The game may come too soon for Diego Llorente, Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shakleton. Jack Harrison is expected to feature, though, after recovering from a niggle while Adam Forshaw remains out.

Confirmed line-ups

Chelsea XI: Mendy; Chilwell, Silva, Zouma, James; Mount, Kanté, Havertz; Werner, Giroud, Ziyech

Leeds XI: Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas, Phillips, Klich, Alioski, Raphinha, Harrison, Bamford

What are the odds?

Chelsea - 1/2

Draw - 18/5

Leeds - 5/1

Prediction

Frank Lampard’s side are currently in a tremendous vein of form, with their defence increasingly hard to breach and confidence only growing as their attack gels and flourished. Although Leeds will provide a very stern test of those credentials, Chelsea could produce yet another impressive performance. Chelsea 3-1 Leeds
