Premier League: Leeds United Thrash 10-Man Chelsea

Chelsea fell to a 3-0 defeat against Leeds United at the Elland Road on Sunday.

Brendan Aaronson gave the hosts the lead on 33 minutes following a however from Edouard Mendy.

Spain forward Rodrigo doubled the lead with his head just moments later it sparked wild scenes inside the stadium.

Chelsea made changes to formation and personnel after the break but still struggled to stamp their authority on the game.

Jack Harrison’s close-range strike midway through the second half ended any hope of a comeback for the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were reduced to 10-men late on when Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off for a second bookable offence.

    Chelsea completely decimated. And the 3 nil result does not flatter Leeds, it must be said.
    Key takeaway from this game. Leeds showed confidence, aggression, and discipline (CAD). Very important for success in big games. Leeds refused to be intimidated. They took the game to Chelsea. The first goal was a horrible howler from Mendy, but it would not have happened if Aaronson had given up on the ball. Leeds players kept running, denied Chelsea space to operate, and took their chances when they came.
    When you compare the way Nigeria played Ghana in Abuja to the way Leeds played Chelsea today, the difference is clear like 7up. Against Ghana, Nigeria was all over the place. Considering that a world cup ticket was at stake, it was a performance that fell short of what was required. That’s putting is mildly.
    Peseiro will do well to instill CAD in the team, an attitude that will surely lead to improved results if implemented.
