How to watch, live stream link, team news, start time

Chelsea’s laborious march to locking down a top-four spot will be all but over if they can beat a desperate Leeds United at Elland Road on Wednesday (watch live, 2:30 p.m. ET Wednesday and online through Peacock Premium).

The Blues have taken just two of the last nine points they have, the last coming from a 2-0 lead in a draw with Wolves at the weekend. And so the Champions League is still not guaranteed to the FA Cup finalists, who need five points more (or less, depending on the results of Thursday’s North London derby).


Leeds, meanwhile, fought hard against Arsenal but couldn’t secure their own two-goal comeback. Jesse Marsch’s men are in the bottom three at the moment, under Burnley on goal differential and one point behind Everton. The Toffees have a game in hand over Leeds, to boot.

After Chelsea, Leeds meet Brighton away and Brentford at home. A point here would certainly bring some solace to the Elland Road faithful and the stadium will be at its peak from the start.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leeds vs Chelsea.

Leeds squad news, injuries, roster options

Luke Ayling is suspended after his reckless red card against Arsenal, and Leeds will also be without Stuart Dallas (thigh), Crysencio Summerville (ankle), Adam Forshaw (knee) and Tyler Roberts (thigh). Patrick Bamford (ankle) and Liam Cooper (knee) are far from coming back, although Cooper is more likely than Bamford.
