Leeds United have only lost one of their last 41 home league matches in the month of May (W25 D15), a 3-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur back in May 1996. They have since gone 19 matches unbeaten at Elland Road  (W12 D7).

Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku netted a brace against Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out. He last scored two or more goals in back-to-back Premier League appearances in February and March 2019 for Manchester United.

Chelsea have only conceded two first-half goals in their last 14 Premier League matches, both against Arsenal in April. Thirteen of the last 15 goals they’ve conceded have come in the second half, and 71 per cent of their overall Premier League goals conceded this season have come after half-time (22/31), their highest ratio in a single campaign.

Jesse Marsch has lost two of his first four home league matches in charge (W1 D1), with Neil Warnock the last Leeds manager to lose as many as three of his first five at Elland Road in 2012. Marsch has not lost consecutive home league matches with the same club since May/June 2015 with New York Red Bulls in MLS.
