Tip: 1 Win to Nil
Units: 2/5

We were surprised that the bookies expected goals to be scored when Chelsea clashed with Tottenham and our prediction is that the Blues will run another tight ship when Leeds pay them a visit on Saturday.

The Blues began the season with their defence looking porous and we saw them play out 3-3 draws against West Brom and Southampton. However, the plain fact is that the London side have kept a clean sheet in four of the past five EPL clashes.

Bet on Chelsea to Stop Leeds From Scoring

The improvement defensively has coincided with the arrival of Edouard Mendy who is now operating behind a fairly settled back four, with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma the preferred central defensive partnership, while Reece James and Ben Chilwell are the roving full-backs with an excellent delivery.

With N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovavic shining against Spurs, we think Leeds’ goalscoring opportunities will be restricted and it was noticeable that Marcelo Bielsa’s side went back to basics at Goodison Park to land a 1-0 victory after nullifying Everton throughout the game.

The Best Betting Tip for Chelsea v Leeds Clash

Frank Lampard praised the discipline that his team showed against Tottenham although he will want more offensively from his side in this encounter, with Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz now both available to slot back into the Starting 11.

It’s unlikely that Chelsea will draw a blank against a Leeds side who don’t have the same defensive capabilities as Spurs, with our betting tip being the home side to win without conceding and we’re surprised that the odds are so big about this outcome.

The vast majority of Chelsea wins have been without conceding and we should expect Frank Lampard’s side to get themselves in front and then either supplement the scoreline or alternatively protect their advantage.
