Chelsea would play our third league game of the season – with an away trip to Leeds United.

The last time Chelsea visited Elland Road, the Blues won the game 3-0, with goals from Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku helping Chelsea to a comfortable victory.

Leeds and Chelsea have four points from their opening two games, and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is expecting a tough game at Elland Road.

According to Tuchel, last season’s 3-0 victory was aided by an early red card to Daniel James.

“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.”
