Vinnie Jones has predicted that Leeds United will get something out of the game against Chelsea on Saturday evening.
He’s predicting goals and thinks that Leeds will head back up north with a point after a 2-2 or a 3-3 draw.
Jones also said that he thinks that Leeds and Chelsea could be the two best footballing sides in the Premier League this season.
Writing in his regular column for EasyOdds Jones said, “I told you Leeds would be a force this year, that they’d surprise a lot of people and Bielsa and the boys have done me proud.
“They played great against Everton and beat them – just like I said they would!
“Leeds are creating chances and are a joy to watch – but now they’re up against Frank and his much-improved team. These guys are serious contenders, believe me.
“I’m calling it a draw – but a high-scoring one at that. Both teams will carve out chances and keep both Mendy and Meslier busy throughout. I’m going 2-2, or even 3-3.”
The bookies have got Chelsea down for an easy home win but if Frank Lampard has done his analysis (and we know he does analysis, too) that’s not what he’ll be expecting.
At 1/2 there’s no value on a home win, with the draw priced at 3/1 and the away win at 5/1.
Leeds have already gone toe-to-toe with Man City and come away with a draw – and it could have been more.
They were desperately unlucky not to get something out of the game against Liverpool at Anfield. Only a late penalty stopped that game ending 3-3.
Leeds had the lion’s share of possession in both of these games, which is an incredible stat in itself.
It’s not going to be easy for Leeds at Stamford Bridge but they will create chances and it’s whether Patrick Bamford, Jack Harrison, Raphinha and Rodrigo can take them.
And whether Luke Ayling and Gjanni Alioski or Stuart Dallas can keep Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic quiet.
Goals could be the way to go.
