Chelsea Vs Leeds United Stats
During the 2012/13 Premier League season, Manchester United and Chelsea faced off in an exciting game. While Manchester United was able to claim the win, it wasn’t without some controversy. During the match, fans of both clubs swore at each other and some players were involved in a brawl. This article will take a look at some of the stats for the match.
Detailed stats on Chelsea vs Leeds United have been compiled from the last eight games between the two clubs. They are not official rankings. For additional information on the game, visit the website tab Stats.
Leeds have won just once in the past five matches against Chelsea. Their opponents have not lost any of the previous four fixtures. Their record against the Premier League elite was bad, as they have only won one match against the top six teams in the last year.
Despite this, they are on a good start to the season. They have a total of 34 points, twelve points clear of the bottom three. They have drawn eight games and have four wins. They have scored more than twice as many goals as they have conceded. They have also registered more shots on target than their opposition.
Neither Chelsea nor Leeds can boast a league record that matches that of the other. They have both played 24 games so far this season, and both clubs are battling for a place in the relegation zone. However, the gulf in class between these two rivals is narrowing, and both sides have shown signs of picking up form in recent weeks.
This game is scheduled to take place at Stamford Bridge on December 11, 2021, with the kickoff being at 3pm GMT. The match will be live-streamed via Standard Sport, which will also be hosting a LIVE match blog.
Points averaged per match
During the last five fixtures between Leeds United and Chelsea, the Blues have scored a total of 2.8 goals per match. The home team has won four of the matches. In the first match between these teams, the Whites lost 6-2.
In their last two games, Leeds have picked up four points. However, the away side has had a poor record. In the first two fixtures of this season, they have scored only one goal. They have also had a defensive wobble, with two goals conceded.
The stats show that the average number of key passes made per game for the two teams is roughly the same, while the percentage of accurate passes is slightly higher for Chelsea. The numbers are not as impressive for the Leeds side, though.
Despite an incredible first half performance, Leeds United were unable to capitalise on their early lead. Instead, they were drawn towards a lull before an equaliser from Crystal Palace.
The game was not without its sleazy moments. As a result, a number of awkward moments arose for the home team’s defence.
Among the most exciting things to happen during the match was the goal Brenden Aaronson scored. He took advantage of a mistake from Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy to score his side’s first goal. However, it was not his most impressive moment.
Rodrigo Moreno’s prolific Premier League season
Having started the season with a goal drought of six matches, Rodrigo Moreno has now scored five goals in the last four matches. He has also found the net in the first three Premier League games.
His ability to beat a defender to the ball, combined with his versatility in front of goal, is one of his biggest attributes. His knack for breaking down defensive lines is one of the things that will help Leeds to achieve a successful season.
The Spaniard has been in great form this season for both club and country. His accuracy in front of goal is at a 40% rate, and he has converted nine of his 25 shots. His ability to break through the lines will allow Pablo Hernandez and Patrick Bamford to be freed up.
Matches played at home
Despite Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, they will have to do better than that to beat Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday. Leeds have not lost to the Blues in seven years, but have only won one of their last nine league matches against them.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 3-0 win for Chelsea, though. Leeds jumped into the Premier League’s bottom three for the first time since October, and will be desperate to pick up points against Chelsea.
Despite being two goals behind in the first half, Leeds United put in a display to remind us why they were promoted from the EFL Championship last season. They won a historic match against rivals Chelsea in front of their own fans at Elland Road.
After a good start, Chelsea dragged into an open end-to-end affair for around 30 minutes. The hosts were able to create several chances, while Chelsea failed to make theirs count. The Blues also had five forwards on the pitch at one time.
