THOMAS TUCHEL CHELSEA
The Blues are undefeated in 2022-23 season but so are Leeds as the two sides face off in a mid table battle on Sunday

Chelsea and Leeds United are both locked at 4 points each as they lock horns in matchday 3 of the 2022-23 Premier League, on Sunday.

Both sides were forced to split points in their last fixture as the Yorkshire side's 2-1 win over Wolves was followed by a 2-2 draw at Southampton while Chelsea were held to a similar scoreline by Tottenham after the Blues had scraped past Everton in their season opener.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will have to sit this one out after the red card as a consequence of the spat with Spurs manager Antonio Conte. Nonetheless, Chelsea will want to make better use of the umpteen opportunities they have ceased to finish so far.

Meanwhile, after losing a two-goal advantage in their last outing, Jesse Marsch will want his men to make life difficult for the visitors, with GOAL on hand to deliver all of the information you need to keep up to date with events at Elland Road.

Chelsea squad & team news

A hamstring injury he picked in the Tottenham draw is set to keep N'Golo Kante sidelined for at least a couple of weeks if not longer.

Mateo Kovacic is also not likely to return yet, and as such Tuchel should be left with the option of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher in the middle, while Cesar Azpilicueta's return will see Reece James back at his usual position.

Armando Broja has a slight fitness concern but Kai Havertz should retain his place in attack.

Chelsea possible XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Cucurella; Mount, Sterling; Havertz
