Things to know ahead of Chelsea v Leeds.

This weekend sees Frank Lampard’s Chelsea face Marco Bielsa’s Leeds united in an eagerly anticipated match that it’s popularly believed to be highly heated and intense. Lampard is going to face another stern test this season in a Leeds side who has been good to watch this season.

  • Leeds are a high-speed possession team that focus a lot on creating chances to score opposition teams and use their high intensity style to overpower teams which show in their high amount of shots they have taken. Leeds are second in the league for amount of shots taken with 153.

  • They have a 56% possession stat which shows how much they like to have the ball. They most notably had more possession than Mancity this season. few teams are able to achieve that against Pep Guardiola teams.

  • So Chelsea will have spells without the ball , and what we do during that time is very important, cause leeds create a lot of chances, so Frank would also be willing to reduce that amount when defending

  • The Main Challenge for Chelsea will be if they can match up to the intensity of Leeds cause they have had all week to rest. Thankfully Chelsea key players have had 1 week’s rest too. Because matching the intensity and physicality of Leeds is very important.

Feel free to drop your thoughts on this match too :hugs:


Leeds United full-back Luke Ayling has made more tackles than any other defender in the Premier league this season (30).

He faces Chelsea’s Frank Lampard side today :muscle:

Match Preview: Westham United vs Manchester United 6:30pm (BST) 11pm (IST)

Premier League fans will return for the first time since March when Westham host Manchester United at the London stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Up to 2,000 supporters will be permitted to attend a fascinating contest between two sides separated by four places but just one point in the Premier League table.

The Hammers are the team with the most improved home form since lockdown, winning five of their last 10 such top-flight matches compared to only two of 10 beforehand, while Manchester United boast the most improved away form since lockdown - eight wins in nine compared to only three wins beforehand.

It all adds another intriguing layer to an already interesting battle between two sides whose form over the last five league games has been identical - a draw, a defeat and then three wins on the bounce.

For Manchester United, the latest of those victories was a rousing come-from-behind triumph over Southampton as they recovered from 2-0 down at half time to win 3-2 at St Mary’s.

It has undoubtedly been an inauspicious start to the season for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men, but after a quarter of the season they are still only five points off the top of the table with a game in hand, and victory this weekend would lift them up into the top four temporarily at least.

Manchester City vs Fulham- 4pm (BST) 8:30pm (IST)

Manchester City welcome Fulham to the Etihad Stadium today.

Pep Guardiola’s team remain mid-table but have a game in hand. They have won their Champions League group with a match to spare and expect them now to start rising towards the top of the Premier League.

Fulham currently at 17th place on the PL table will no doubt go into the match knowing that any points they can get at the Etihad would be regarded as an unexpected bonus. Monday night’s 2-1 triumph away to Leicester City will have raised belief that they can come away with something.

What an impact he’s made :raised_hands:


Premier League fans return this weekend

Fans return this weekend as part of a plan to get stadiums back to one-third capacity by the end of the season.

Fans must wear masks, not sing too much and no hugging!

The regulations, which also include a mandatory temperature check on arrival, go beyond the government’s guidance. Supporters will also be told not to excessively sing or shout and to moderate their behavior so they do not high-five or hug.

Under the three-tier system in place across England, outdoor sports venues can have up to 4,000 in tier 1, 2,000 fans in tier 2 areas and but no fans in tier 3.


Jordan Pickford has conceded more goals from outside the box (5) than any other goalkeeper this season in the Premier League.

Beaten from long range yet again.


Everton have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 10 Premier League games this season.

Their only clean sheet of the season was against Tottenham on opening day.


The premier league’s top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin nets his 11th league goal of the season.


Reece James is set for his 50th Chelsea appearance in all competitions against Leeds United tonight :muscle:t4::blue_heart:

Full Time: Burnley 1-1 Everton

The points are shared at Turf moor.


Everton have only won one out of their last six games in the Premier League this season having won their opening four games to start the campaign.

Troubling times for the Toffees.


Manchester City beat Fulham 2-0

Raheem Sterling scored and won the 20th penalty of his career - he has now won more penalties than any other player in Premier League history (20).

Sterling set the tone by grabbing his first Premier League goal since mid-October (6) after being sent through by a wonderful De Bruyne pass.

The Belgian then got in on the act from the penalty spot (26) following a foul on Sterling from Joachim Andersen - it was the 20th time Sterling has won a spot-kick in the Premier League, no player in the league’s history has won more. The three points moves them up to fourth.

Fulham, who beat Leicester away on Monday, failed to build on that performance.
