Leeds United will host Chelsea in the Premier League on Wednesday, May 11.
Currently, the Whites are in the relegation zone (18th), while the Blues are 3rd with 67 points.
Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
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.
Lawrenson’s prediction: 0-2
