Greetings to the entire SunSport family. Surely everyone is feeling good, it’s the start of the weekend.
If you aren’t, try and remind yourself that as each day passes by, it is a step closer to restrictions being lifted which will soon lead to total social freedom!
But for today, two exciting teams are set to feature in the blog and I for one cannot wait until kick-off.
Marcelo Bielsa’s all-out attacking Leeds side will be hosting Thomas Tuchel’s transformed Chelsea at Elland Road this afternoon.
Want proof that the Whites go-to tactic is offence? Despite sitting in 11th Leeds have scored 43 Premier League goals in the 2020/21 campaign so far.
Not a bad return to England’s top division.
But being direct has also led to them shipping 46 goals at the other end which is more than two out of the three teams in the relegation zone.
And to make matters worse, the 2-0 loss to West Ham was Leeds’ second league defeat on the spin.
As for the Blues, they couldn’t have asked for a better to start to life under Thomas Tuchel.
In the German’s first eleven games as Chelsea’s head coach, not only has he gone unbeaten but Tuchel has guided his side to victories against Spurs, Liverpool and a first leg Champions League triumph over Atletico Madrid in the process.
Also, the Blues maintained their current run with a comfortable 2-0 victory over an in-form Everton side on Monday, making that five consecutive home clean sheets.
So with one team hoping to end their run and the other praying that their streak continues, it makes this match that little bit more intriguing.
Stick with me and I will be more than happy to keep you up to date with all the action from today’s encounter.
