Leeds United and Chelsea drew their opening game, with both clubs having remained undefeated in their two league fixtures.
Nevertheless, Leeds United and Chelsea gave up leads in their previous matches, something that will provide additional motivation ahead of the next match at the weekend.
While Thomas Tuchel, the head coach of Chelsea, was praising his team’s performance against Tottenham, the German was left ruing more clear shots being missed by his team.
Chelsea had enough opportunities to win the game before Harry Kane’s last minute equaliser in complicated circumstances.
However, Tuchel and his team should be relatively content with their start to the campaign, especially as they continue to compete with a tough opening to the current season.
Thomas Tuchel will be expecting to see a goal from his strikers at Elland Road with their strikes coming from the penalty area and a smart finish from the wing back Reece James.
From the look at things, Jesse Marsch will have mixed feelings towards his contest, having witnessed his team’s two-goal away defeat at Southampton.
However, Leeds should be happy with their start, having only narrowly escaped relegation in the 2021-2022 championship.
Match will be eager for Patrick Bamford to put together a nice run of game on the pitch, rather than on the sidelines.
Again, Rodrigo Moreno took his chances in their last game. He scored twice after the break to take him to three goals from just 2hrs 35mins on the pitch.

Meteo Kovacic is likely to stay sidelined with a knee issue, and either Ruben Loftus-cheek or Conor Gallagher will feature as Chelsea’s midfielder.
N’Golo Kante is expected to be absent after sustaining a hamstring injury against Tottenham.
On the other hand, Bamford had decided to miss the match with a minor injury, although he said he might return before the end of the month.
Daniel James, should take up position on the attack before the next clash.
