Chelsea has not been able to play at the level they were previously; they have dropped from the top spot in the league to the third position in the league. The Blues have only been able to win two out of the last four league matches they have played in; they drew one and lost one match. Their loss came against West Ham United by a scoreline of 3-2; this poor run of form has come because of ineffective defending. In the last four league games, the side has conceded seven goals; as well as three cup goals as they drew to Zenit in the Champions League.
In their most recent game, they played Leeds United; who have not been able to establish themselves in the league this season. Marcelo Bielsa’s side has only been able to gather sixteen points in fifteen league games; with a negative goal difference of minus eight this season. In the last five league games, they have only been able to win one match and draw the other two games. What do you think Leeds United needs to do in order to stay up in the Premier League this season?
