The travelling Leeds faithful were surely expecting a drubbing at the Emirates Stadium after a catastrophic first half in the capital, with Eddie Nketiah striking twice within the opening 10 minutes and Luke Ayling being sent for an early bath after a horror tackle on Gabriel Martinelli.

Raphinha would have likely talked his way into a red card without his teammates’ intervention, although Arsenal failed to properly capitalise and even conceded to Diego Llorente‘s header, but there was to be no dramatic fightback for the 10 men of Leeds.

Jesse Marsch‘s fast start to life at Elland Road has been brought crashing down to earth with losses to Manchester City and Arsenal, which has left the Whites’ survival fate out of their own hands as they sit below the dotted line in 18th with just three games left to play.

Leeds dropped into the relegation zone after Everton – who still have a game in hand – came up trumps at Leicester City, and fixtures with an in-form Brighton & Hove Albion and improving Brentford side are far from simple for the Whites to navigate.

Furthermore, Leeds have now gone 10 games without a clean sheet at Elland Road since shutting out Crystal Palace in November – not since 1966 have they suffered a longer such streak – but Chelsea are hardly adept at holding onto a lead

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 RobertsAdam 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.

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.

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Llorente, Cooper, Koch, Firpo; Klich, Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; Gelhardt

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Christensen, Chalobah, Rudiger; James, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Sarr; Mount; Werner, Lukaku
