Leeds United vs Chelsea: Chelsea Woops Leeds United 3-0 (video)
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Chelsea defeated Leeds United.
Chelsea won the match defeating leeds united 3-0. Big win for Chelsea as they retraced their steps.
If Leeds United are relegated in 10 days, they are going down scrapping. This was another defeat and another straight red card for Jesse Marsch’s team, who remain in the bottom three.
They will be without Dan James for their final two matches after his lunge at Mateo Kovacic, who is now a major doubt for the FA Cup final on Saturday. He joins Luke Ayling on the sidelines after his dismissal at the weekend, while Stuart Dallas’ reckless challenge in the match before that saw him suffer a serious knee injury.
“It’s a little unfair to classify Stuart’s injury in the same category but we have to be aggressive against the ball and sometimes we have been too aggressive in situations and that has cost us,” said Marsch.
The American coach is running out of time to get Leeds safe and also running out of players for games against Brighton and Brentford which will decide their season. Leeds desperately need victories helped by discipline from their players.
They were unfortunate to meet a Chelsea team intent on getting within confirmation of a Champions League place, rather than resting players for Wembley. Kovacic’s injury was a blow but they are no longer looking over their shoulder in the top-four race.
Mason Mount opened the scoring early on before Leeds were reduced to 10 men, then Christian Pulisic added and Romelu Lukaku added more. Kovacic’s injury injury aside, it was perfect preparation for the weekend.
