Children today most likely don’t know that Chelsea and Leeds are rivals, which is truthful sufficient as a result of the 2 golf equipment have met simply as soon as within the final 16 years and are available from reverse ends of the nation.
However this fixture has a wealthy historical past, and up to date occasions between managers Frank Lampard and Marcelo Bielsa give it an additional edge, too.
Again in 1970, Chelsea and Leeds performed out the most-watched FA Cup closing in historical past, and it was most likely the dirtiest as effectively, regardless of simply ONE yellow card being brandished because the Blues edged the replay at Wembley.
Issues are a bit totally different today, however we are able to nonetheless anticipate a tasty affair, particularly with 2,000 followers behind Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.
Lampard and Bielsa fell out through the 2018/19 Championship season, when the Leeds supervisor despatched spies to Derby’s coaching floor.
And, for some time, it seemed like Bielsa had Lampard’s quantity, beating his Derby aspect thrice in a row, earlier than the Rams lastly acquired their revenge with a surprising 4-2 victory at Elland Highway to dump Leeds out of the play-offs.

The Gunners have did not win any of their final three video games and the stress is on boss Mikel Arteta heading into this enormous derby.
Ominously for Arsenal, Tottenham are unbeaten of their final six Premier League video games towards their north London rivals stretching again to March 2014.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho loves taking part in towards them too – he has by no means misplaced a house match towards Arsenal in ten earlier video games.
And the hosts are the shape workforce within the Premier League proper now as they sit prime, having not tasted defeat for the reason that opening day of the season.
Whereas the shape guide tends to exit the window in these huge derby video games, we are able to’t see previous something however a Tottenham win this weekend – with Mourinho’s males 19/20 to take all three factors.
Harry Kane picked up a minor damage earlier this week however is predicted to be match sufficient to start out and has an outstanding file towards Arsenal.
The England captain has ten objectives in all competitions towards Spurs’ rivals and if he scores right here, he’ll be the highest scoring participant in aggressive north London derby video games.
Having not scored in his previous two league video games, Kane shall be much more determined to seek out the web and it’s 23/20 he nets anytime, or 16/5 he scores first or final.
And towards a defence that has had its share of issues, he may effectively safe his place in historical past on Sunday.
Arsenal are struggling to attain objectives this season – they’ve netted solely ten in comparison with Tottenham’s 21 – and have solely netted as soon as of their final three fixtures.
So Tottenham to win to nil at 12/5 is tempting to us too.
