Team News
Leeds United
Leeds right-back Ayling has been slapped with a three-game ban for his red card against former club Arsenal and will therefore miss the rest of the season – hardly ideal with Stuart Dallas out for the long term with his broken leg.

Tyler Roberts, Adam Forshaw and Crysencio Summerville also remain out of contention for the Whites, but Marsch is hopeful that Patrick Bamford will return to training next week and can return to action before the season is over.

Emirates goalscorer Llorente could deputise for Ayling and Dallas at right-back here, allowing fit-again Liam Cooper to return to the centre of defence, while Joe Gelhardt will hope for another opportunity up top after being sacrificed early when Leeds went down to 10 on Sunday.
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Llorente, Cooper, Koch, Firpo; Klich, Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; Gelhardt

Chelsea
Similarly, Chelsea have also been bedevilled by a few injury concerns of late, with Jorginho and N’Golo Kante facing late fitness tests, but the duo will not be risked if they are not at 100% before the FA Cup final.

Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi are keeping the two midfielders company in the treatment room, while Marcos Alonso was taken off at half time against Wolves and was allegedly involved in a heated row with Tuchel in the dressing room.

As such, either Malang Sarr or Saul Niguez may be drafted into the side this week, and further alterations before the FA Cup final could see Andreas Christensen or Trevoh Chalobah come in as Thiago Silva is wrapped in cotton wool.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Christensen, Chalobah, Rudiger; James, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Sarr; Mount; Werner, Lukaku
Prediction: Leeds United 1-3 Chelsea
