4-3-3: Chelsea Strongest Lineup That Could Bounce Them Back To winning Ways

Chelsea vs Leeds

On Saturday, in the Premier League, Chelsea will aim to relieve the mounting pressure on Graham Potter while also ending their winless streak of six games. They will face relegation-threatened Leeds United at Stamford Bridge. Both teams have experienced comparable slumps in form since the start of the year. Chelsea has managed to win only one of their last nine top-flight games, whereas Leeds United has secured maximum points in just one of their last eight matches.

Graham Potter, Chelsea's manager, is reportedly under immense pressure after a dreadful run of just three wins in his last 17 games in charge. He faces two vital fixtures that could determine the fate of his job. First up is the match against Leeds United on Saturday, followed by a crucial Champions League last-16 second-leg tie with Borussia Dortmund three days later.

It's astonishing to note that in the last three months, Manchester City has won more games involving Chelsea (three) than Chelsea themselves (two). The month of February was particularly disappointing for the West Londoners, as they failed to secure a win in any of their five matches across all competitions. Their only goal came from Joao Felix in a 1-1 draw against West Ham United.

Chelsea has struggled to find the back of the net this season, scoring only six times in their last 15 games across all competitions since November 6. This is the lowest tally of any team in England's top-four divisions. By contrast, Manchester United has scored a whopping 50 goals in the same period, with Marcus Rashford contributing 18 of those goals.

Following their 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea fans are understandably growing impatient. The club's fortunes need to turn around quickly if they hope to have any chance of securing a top-four spot. Presently, the Blues are in 10th place and 14 points behind Spurs in fourth, albeit with a game in hand.

Graham Potter will be eager for his team to perform much better than their previous home match against relegation-threatened Southampton, where they suffered a 1-0 loss. It was their ninth defeat of the season in the Premier League.
