Manchester United legend Patrice Evra gives prediction for Leeds vs Chelsea clash

Chelsea would visit Leeds United this weekend at the Elland Road.

Leeds and Chelsea have four points from their opening two games, and it’s expected to be a tough game away from home.

Chelsea put in an improved performance against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, but were unfortunate to get a draw in that game.

Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has said he was pleased with the performance of Chelsea against Spurs, and is now backing Chelsea to win this weekend, 2-0.

Evra said in his prediction for Betfair: “After their performance in the last match against Tottenham, I will say Chelsea. I think Tuchel is seeing the progress they are making with the players they have brought in.

“I have so much respect for Kalidou Koulibaly , I played many times against him when he was at Napoli. With the ball he’s so comfortable and that means Chelsea can go to a back three.”

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has said he’s expecting a difficult game against Leeds United.

“I expect a high intensity game, a high pressing team from Leeds and a very emotional stadium,” Tuchel stated.

“We had a fantastic game last season at Elland Road. We scored very early and we were very dominant, very focused and concentrated and effective in front of goal.

“Of course the early red card played into our hands but still it was a very good performance and this is what we expect – repetitive intensity, high pressing and a team that loves the chaos.

“They don’t get frustrated by mistakes, they accept them, so we have to manage our expectations and our level of acceptance for mistakes as well because you cannot play without mistakes against these teams.”
