Chelsea vs Leeds United takes center stage today, as the two sides clash in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Blues come into the match encounter seeking redemption after their heartbreaking Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool.

Their Performance On Their Latest Matches

Chelsea vs Leeds United promises an intriguing matchup. The Blues booked their place in the fifth round with a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa, while Leeds needed a dramatic 4-1 win over Plymouth Argyle in extra time.

This fixture historically favors the Blues. In their 108 meetings across competitions, Chelsea has the upper hand with 40 wins compared to Leeds' 38. Notably, the Blues boast a perfect record in the FA Cup against Leeds, winning all five encounters.

However, recent form suggests a closer contest. While this fixture head-to-head favors the Blues, the recent dip in Chelsea's form, with only two wins in seven games, cannot be ignored. In contrast, Leeds United has been on a tear, winning 11 of their last 12 games and keeping eight clean sheets.

What Do We Expect In This Chelsea vs Leeds United Match

Despite Chelsea's recent struggles, their impressive home record against Leeds is a factor to consider. The Blues have won their last six home matches against the visitors. Veteran defender Thiago Silva's potential return could also bolster the Chelsea defense.

Chelsea vs Leeds United prediction is a close call. While Leeds United is in phenomenal form, Chelsea's experience and home advantage cannot be disregarded. Expect a tightly contested match, with both teams potentially decided by a narrow margin.
