Confirmed Chelsea starting XI: Pulisic and Christensen start with Werner on the bench vs Leeds
Thomas Tuchel keeps faith with Lukaku on top but Pulisic is in the team to provide pace and power.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has named a strong team at Elland Road with the Chelsea boss desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
The German Champions League winning manager has gone with a mixture of youth and experience as he looks to wrestle back control of their league form after recent slump.
There had been reports that the German manager had a dressing room bust-up with Spanish wing-back Marcos Alonso but the club has quickly denied that and he’s been named in the team for this evening’s game.
Leeds United are also looking for a massive win that will give them energy for the remainder of their campaign after a rather deflating 2-1 defeat to Arsenal over the weekend.
Their precarious situation makes for an interesting game with both sides looking for wins that will breathe life into a campaign that promised a lot but is in danger of fizzling out with a whimper.
Another positive for the night is that record signing Romelu Lukau is in the starting line-up after his brace against Wolves over the weekend.
The former Inter Milan man has endured a difficult first season back at the club, but he will be looking to end on a high and then prepare to be the main man he was bought to be next season.
Chelsea know that Arsenal, in fourth place are just a point behind, and they will have to win to keep them at arm’s length and ensure they are not drawn into a race for Champions League football.
In what is already an electric atmosphere at Elland Road here is the team the Chelsea boss put up.
