CHE vs LEE: Chelsea's Strongest XI That Could See Them Get back to winning ways against Leeds

The Blues will have to work around the absences of seven players for tomorrow's Premier League clash against Leeds United at Stamford Bridge.

Recently, the West Londoners were handed a big blow with Thiago Silva hauled off with a knee injury in Chelsea's last game against Tottenham with reports also stating that the Brazil international could be out for atleast six weeks which isn't good news for Graham Potter.

The 38-year-old will join the likes of Edouard Mendy, Armando Broja, Christian Pulisic, Ngolo Kante on the sidelines.

Cesar Azpilicueta & Mateo Kovacic were also both unavailable for the match against Antonio Conte's Spurs due to concussion and illness reasons, however, the duo are expected to recover in time for Saturday's clash.

Graham Potter stated recently in his interview that Reece James can't feature for full 90 minutes on a frequent basis owning to the fact that he recently recovered from a long term knee problem & after the Englishman was involved for full 90 vs Spurs, Trevor Chalobah or Azpilicueta could get the green light to occupy the role on the right side of defence.

Wesley Fofana will take the place of Thiago Silva in the heart of alongside Benoit Badiashile while Ben Chilwell get the nod ahead of Cucurella on the left.

Enzo Fernandez is set for another start in the engine room alongside Denis Zakaria.

While the attack will feature Joao Felix, Noni Madueke, Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz as the aim to get goals.
