Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Chelsea will win against Leeds United this week.

Chelsea will take on Leeds away from home at Elland Road in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool legend Lawrenson believes that Thomas Tuchel’s side will pick up all three points from the encounter, thanks to a 2-0 win.

Chelsea are rated at 15/2 on Betfair to win 2-0 against Leeds at Elland Road.

Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “Leeds were frantic and frenzied against Arsenal on Sunday, and it didn’t help them very much.

“They might have lost that game anyhow, but to be beaten the way they were was not a good sign for a team that is now in the thick of a relegation scrap.

“Chelsea are not exactly in convincing form themselves. They threw away a 2-0 lead against Wolves on Saturday and are now looking over their shoulders at Arsenal and Spurs when they should already have their Champions League spot secured.

“That doesn’t really help Leeds much, to be honest, because instead of looking ahead to the FA Cup final this weekend, the Blues need to get something from this game.

“Chelsea are far from reliable at the moment but they have got some excellent players in their side.

“In among the hurly burly I am expecting from Leeds, enough of that Blues quality should shine through.”
