Team News:

Lampard has a full squad to choose from for this match, with Ben Chilwell his only minor injury doubt after remaining as an unused sub in midweek.

The full-back is available for selection, though, meaning that Lampard's only headaches come in trying to keep the long list of talent at his disposal happy.

Chelsea's Premier League form is good enough that Lampard can largely stick to what he has been using so far, which should mean returns for Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, N'Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Thiago Silva, Reece James, Kurt Zouma and Chilwell after sitting out in midweek.

However, Giroud's four-goal haul in Seville makes it almost impossible to leave him out for the weekend, so Tammy Abraham may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Ziyech, Giroud, Werner

Leeds have Diego Llorente back available following a groin injury, but the Spain international will likely again be made to wait for his debut with Bielsa hinting that he would play for the Under-23s before he makes his first-team bow.

Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton are also expected to turn out for the Under-23s before returning to Bielsa's side, while Adam Forshaw remains sidelined.

There is better news on the fitness of Jack Harrison, though, with the attacker expected to start again after overcoming a minor leg problem.
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas; Raphinha, Klich, Phillips, Alioski; Harrison; Bamford
Leeds United Premier League form: LWLLDW

Prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Leeds United
