Despite Leeds currently plying their trade in the Championship, they will be quietly confident of a win here. Whenever Neil Warnock’s men have the backing of their own fans, they always fancy their chances.
Also, Chelsea have only just travelled back from Japan where they took part in the Club World Cup of course, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat to Corinthians so the Yorkshire side might be looking to take advantage of some tired bodies in the opposition camp.
Victories over Southampton and Everton already in the competition have seen the 7/2 on the home win take plenty of attention, but Warnock will have to make do without new loan signings Alan Tate – who is cup tied after already playing for Swansea in the earlier rounds, and Jerome Thomas, who is struggling for full fitness.
Warnock knows that the games do not come much tougher than this, after all, the Blues are still in the European Champions. He needs his men to start quickly and hope that Lucinao Becchio is at his clinical best.
Rafael Benitez has to do all he can to try and win over the Chelsea faithful and with the teams left in this Capital One Cup, he simply has to win it, and at a price of 5/6 is certainly appealing to punters, report Paddy Power.
The Spaniard will expect a big performance from his side here and if they are anywhere near their best, then it should be a comfortable win for them.
The West Londoners might send out a few fringe players in this one, but any complacency will be punished by Leeds.
It does all make for a superb encounter that could go right to the wire and be decided on penalties. It gets underway from 7.45PM.
