Chelsea will be away to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Saturday, and it’s an important game for Chelsea in the race to finish in the top four.

Every game for Chelsea is a must-win game until the end of the season, as the top four race is now in a crucial phase.

Chelsea defeated Leeds United 3-1 in reverse fixture, as the Blues came from behind to win the game.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that two Chelsea players will be missing from this game, with Tammy Abraham and Thiago Silva out injured.

Speaking on Tammy Abraham, Tuchel said: “It is still the pain from a tackle a long time ago now. He does not feel really 100 per cent free and comfortable and I can see it in training, even if he finishes training I see it is not 100 per cent that he has trust in it.

“I have 100 per-cent trust in our medical department, they are fantastic and they take care of it now. First of all it is most important he feels safe and free and feels zero pain, and then we can think about his comeback.”
