Leeds United have shown that they can be a hard nut to crack, and Marcelo Bielsa’s side has been one of the most exciting sides in the Premier League this season.

In ten league games played so far this season, Leeds United have scored 15 goals, but there’s a bigger story to that. Bielsa’s side currently have the second-highest number of shots in the division and they have an unpredictable attacking force.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted ahead of the game that it will be a big test for his side against a hard pressing Leeds United side.

“It will be a big test for us,” said the Chelsea boss.

“If you analyse Leeds, which is not easy because of the way they play, you see they have lots of shots and score goals against top teams. We’ll have to be at our absolute best in terms of concentration and the togetherness in how we defend.

“We’ve been showing some really good signs and that’s how you get clean sheets from front to back but it will be a huge test because they’re one of the most dangerous teams in the league.”
