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.
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.
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.
