Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a heart-breaking loss to Tottenham in the London derby, Chelsea will look to stay in top ten when they welcome Leeds United to their Stamford Bridge on Matchday 26. The Blues have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in four of their last five league fixtures, but the bookies still see them as hot favourites to beat the Whites on home soil. All Azpilicueta, Pulisic, Kante, and goalkeeper Mendy are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Meanwhile, the visitors recorded a morale-boosting win over Southampton at the weekend to escape the relegation zone, but we believe that the time has come for Chelsea new recruits to prove their worth on the field. As for the away side, all Rodrigo, Dallas, Sinisterra, Forshaw, and Gray are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Raheem Sterling):
Raheem Sterling is an English professional footballer plays for Manchester City in the Premier League. The winger who is known for his lightning pace and dribbling ability started his youth career as a five-year-old playing for Alpha and Omega. In 2003, he joined QPR's youth academy and spent seven years with them before signing for Liverpool in 2010.
At Liverpool, Sterling made his professional debut, coming on as a substitute in a league match against Wigan Athletic on the 24th of March, 2012. He went on to make over 120 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, scoring 23 goals and providing 25 assists in the process. In August 2015, Sterling joined Manchester City on a transfer worth 49 million pounds, which made the most expensive English footballer at the time.
Since signing for the Citizens, Sterling has enjoyed a trophy-laden career winning every English domestic trophy available and has molded himself into one of the best players in the league. Sterling, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, holds both the English and Jamaican citizenship but chose to represent England at the International stage. The 24-year-old has capped at every youth level and won his first cap for the senior team on the 14th of November, 2012. He has since featured 53 times for the Three Lions.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United is one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites.
Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash.
The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
