Tactical Plan that Tuchel will be Targeting Against Leeds United this Sunday

Leeds United will host Chelsea at Elland Road on Sunday at 4 PM. The Blues have an impressive record against the Yorkshire team, and they will be hoping for a victory to keep them safe in the title run.

Chelsea will be without two first-team midfielders due to injury: Ngolo Kante and Mateo Kovacic. Conor Gallagher or Ruben Loftus Cheek will start in the midfield due to the absence of the seasoned midfielders. Loftus has proven to be a solid wingback option, which may provide Gallagher with an opportunity to establish his claim in Tuchel's squad.

Exploitable areas

Leeds United have been left open in wide areas, which Tuchel will look to exploit with his spiky wing backs. Loftus is expected to start at right wing-back, where he shone against Tottenham. He was a continuous threat, and he kept Tottenham's Ryan Sessegnon quiet with his height and stamina.

His link-up with Reece James, who was used as an RCB against Tottenham, was fantastic. Reece James has been a star performer and has been involved in15 goals in 28 games. He has developed better understanding on his new role as ab RCB, which allows him to overlap with Ruben Loftus Cheek.

On the opposite flank we have the new boy Marc Cucurella is. He's already off to a good start, and he's excelled in his first two games. He possesses quick feet that allow him to move quickly and pass with precision. Against Tottenham they had better understanding with Mason Mount and will be looking to repeat the same on Sunday.
