Michael Owen gives his prediction for Chelsea vs Leeds United
Michael Owen believes that Chelsea will secure a sim against Leeds United. However he did add that it will be narrow 3-2 win and Bielsa’s men will give them plenty to think about.
Owen stresses on the fact that Leeds United are better when they are facing teams who will attack them more. Moreover with Chelsea it’s well known that they will push their opponents far into their own half.
Michael believes this is where Leeds United Van be threatening and cited the example of Everton and Manchester City.
Frank Lampard himself will be faced with a dilemma on who to start at the centre forward role. Olivier Giroud showed his class with 4 goals in the UEFA Champions League.
“It gives me nice problems. Oli has always done that, particularly after the restart (last season) when he was fundamental to us getting into the Champions League spots.
From my point of view I have competition for places. Tammy has been scoring and making assists. I can’t give assurances but I never see anything negative from Oli. Playing like the other night, clearly he will get plenty of opportunities.”
