Leeds United thrashed Chelsea 3-0 at Elland Road in epic Premier League encounter

Leeds United have been handed their first Premier League win by Chelsea with a convincing 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, Newspremises reports.

The Thomas Tuchel’s side were hoping to return to win ways during their trip to Elland Road after they dropped points during last weekend 2-2 draw with Tottenham.


Despite missing Patrick Bamford’s and Liam Cooper’s services, Leeds, who were nearly relegated last season, proved too hard to handle for Chelsea.

The Blues had the earliest chance to score through Raheem Sterling, but his goal in the 15th minute of the tie was ruled for an offside.

Leeds United who hosted Chelsea on Sunday were able break the deadlock in the 33rd minute of the game, with Brendan Aaronson handing Leeds the lead after he dispossessed Edouard Mendy to tap into an empty net.

Rodrigo Moreno doubled the advantage four minutes later, beating Reece James to the ball to flick it across Mendy from a well-floated free-kick.

The home side picked from where they left in the second half of the match, with Jack Harrison taking the game beyond the west Londoners in the 69th minute after diverting the ball home from close range.

Things went from bad to worse for Thomas Tuchel’s charges after they were reduced to 10 men in the closing stages of the match following Kalidou Koulibaly’s red card.

The match finished in a 3-0 defeat for the 2021 Champions League winners, with Leeds’ comfortable win firing them to second on the standings.
