Leeds United vs Chelsea, Capital One Cup Quarter-Final: Open Thread

leeds chelsea Leeds United vs Chelsea, Capital One Cup Quarter Final: Open Thread

Leeds United and Chelsea has traditionally been one of the big rivalries in English football both on and off the pitch. On the pitch, there are lots of memories of the two teams who battled each other during the early 70s to become the best team in England. Off the pitch, the supporters from Leeds and Chelsea were some of the most notorious football hooligans in the late 70s and early 80s.

Although they’re separated by one division, both teams are back in action against each other today in a must-see Capital One Cup match. For viewers in the United States, the quarter-final kicks off at 2:45pm ET on beIN SPORT. But if you don’t get beIN, you should be able to hear a radio commentary of the game from talksport.com

If Leeds wants to knock Chelsea out of the cup and land a semi-final spot, today will be their best chance in a very long time. The Blues are suffering from jet lag after returning from Japan, while Chelsea will also be down in the dumps after their loss against Corinthians. Plus, the noise and intimidating atmosphere at Elland Road will certainly be something that Chelsea players are not used to when playing in the Premier League.

Before, during or after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.
