Timo Werner warning with six Chelsea players rated more likely to score than any Leeds United threat

LEEDS United can be backed at bigger than 5-1 to win at Chelsea tonight with the bookies rating Frank Lampard's Blues strong odds-on favourites at Stamford Bridge.

A Blues side who are unbeaten in 15 games in all competitions are no bigger than 59-100 to take all three points in tonight's Premier League clash with even the draw on offer at 37-10.

Leeds, meanwhile, can be backed at 27-5 and Whites striker Patrick Bamford is only seventh in the first scorer marker with six Blues rated more likely to score first.

German international forward Timo Werner heads the first scorer market at 15-4, followed by Tammy Abraham (17-4), Olivier Giroud (9-2), Christian Pulisic (6s), Kai Havertz (7s) and Hakim Ziyech (7s).

Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi (9s) and Mason Mount (10s) are then rated more likely than the next five United players in the market in Rodrigo (10s) and Raphinha (12s), Tyler Roberts (13s) and Mateusz Klich (15s).

Bamford is as big as 47-20 as an any time scorer with Werner odds on with some firms and no bigger than 19-17 while Giroud is 13-10 to net any time fresh from his four-timer in the Champions League against Sevilla.

Leeds are at least fancied to score in the correct score market with a 2-1 triumph to Chelsea favourite at 17-2 followed by a 2-0 win for the Blues at 10s, the same price as a 1-1 draw

A 2-1 win for Leeds is seen as the most likely outcome to give the Whites all three points and even that is as big as 21-1.

All in all, it's a very one-sided market and it remains to be seen if the contest itself is a one-sided affair.
