*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Despite Chelsea having yet another below-par season compared to their very high standards, they've reached a cup final and are two wins away from returning to Wembley in the FA Cup. However, outside of the Premier League, Leeds are probably the last team Mauricio Pochettino wanted to see the Blues draw.

Daniel Farke's Leeds side have nothing to lose heading to Stamford Bridge and after a huge win against Leicester City last week, the Championship high-flyers will be brimming with confidence. With Leeds in such fine form, you may not wish to back an outright winner, so be sure to check out all the other free betting tips we have to offer midweek.

Chelsea have scored three goals in three of their past five meetings between the two teams, although last time out they edged out a 1-0 win, which could be more of what to expect on Wednesday.

Leeds preview: A huge upset could be on the cards, but promotion is the priority

Leeds will fancy themselves to cause a cup upset on Wednesday given the fantastic form they've been in during 2024. However, Farke could well rotate some of his side because promotion out of the Championship is more important.

Predicted lineup: Klaesson (GK) – Firpo, Cresswell, Cooper, Roberts – Kamara, Gruev – James, Piroe, Gnonto – Bamford

Chelsea's Noni Madueke

Player to watch – Noni Madueke

It's just the five goal involvements this season for Noni Madueke, but against a Championship side who will likely rotate, it's a great time for the winger to get his confidence levels up; especially after a poor Carabao Cup display.

Madueke to be the Chelsea spark

Despite it appearing to be a poor season for Madueke on paper, his underlying stats tell a different story. The English winger is second when it comes to shot-creating actions per 90 minutes out of players to have started a league game. So, if he can get a striker capable of finishing off his chances, Madueke will be thriving at Stamford Bridge.
