Match Preview

The Blues will aim to break their streak of poor performances and return to winning ways as they welcome the Lilly Whites to their home ground.

Meanwhile, Graham Potter’s men are in a dire form, having only secured one victory in their last ten matches across all competitions.

They currently sit in the tenth position in the league table, and losing to Leeds United could further impede their chances of finishing among the top four teams this season.

Leeds United also have their own struggles, having won only three matches in their last ten games in all competitions.

The team is coming off a 2-0 defeat against Fulham in the FA Cup, and will need to put on a strong performance to defeat Chelsea on Saturday.
