Michael Owen has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Chelsea and Leeds United.
The two sides are set to face each other in the Premier League on Wednesday.
Thomas Tuchel’s team will be hoping to have a successful result in their top-four finish hopes. Meanwhile, it’s an important game for the Whites as they are in danger of being relegated to the Championship.
Ahead of the game, Owen has shared his thoughts, backing the Blues to celebrate a 2 – 0 win over the rivals.
“Leeds now find themselves in the relegation zone, it’s been a tough few weeks for the club. They showed some fight against Arsenal but to play with ten men for well over a half is asking too much of this side. You can’t have disciplinary issues this late in the season, the games are too important to be a man down,” the pundit said, via The Sport Review.
“For Chelsea, they too find themselves under some pressure. For most of the season, it would have been unthinkable for them to finish outside the top four, but they are making things difficult for themselves. With Arsenal just a point behind, they can’t afford any more dropped points.
“I think Chelsea will win this though. Leeds are really struggling, 2-0 Chelsea.”
