A must-win match for Chelsea and supposedly for manager Graham Potter, whose job apparently hangs on the balance of how the Blues fare in their games against Leeds in the Premier League today, and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League next Tuesday.
No wonder we move forward with as much strength as we can muster given our injury absences, lining up in a 3-4-3 to boot.
Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Kepa | W. Fofana, Koulibaly, Badiashile | Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic (c), Enzo, Chilwell | Sterling, Félix, Havertz
Substitutes from: Bettinelli, Chalobah, Chukwuemeka, Gallagher, Zakaria, Madueke, Mudryk, Ziyech, Aubameyang
Leeds United starting eleven:
Meslier | Ayling, Firpo, Koch, Wober, Adams, McKennie, Aaronson, Harrison, Summerville, Georginio
Substitutes from: Robles, Struijk, Kristensen, Gray, Gyabi, Roca, Greenwood, Joseph, Gnonto
