Leeds United vs. Chelsea result

Start exploring

On Sunday, Brenden Aaronson, a forward from the United States, scored the opening goal as Leeds United defeated Chelsea, 3-0, to continue Jesse Marsch's team's strong start to the 2022–23 season.

When Edouard Mendy botched a routine clearing immediately after the interval, Aaronson scored to give Leeds the lead for the first time in the match. 

Since then, Leeds has gone 2-1-1, earning seven points. The American striker snatched the ball out of the Chelsea goalie's hands and dribbled it into an open net.

Despite Chelsea's best efforts, they were unable to capitalise on their early opportunities, and they quickly found themselves trailing by two goals 

after Rodrigo powerfully headed in Jack Harrison's precise free-kick for the Spaniard's fourth Premier League goal of the season.

In the 69th minute, Leeds added a third to their dominant performance when Harrison scored after a cross from Daniel James that was headed down by Rodrigo. Harrison then shot beyond Mendy.

The performance "was the greatest since I have been here," Marsch added. "You're seeing a cast of characters who are stepping up to the plate, some literally.

"The game was played according to our style. To put it simply, we forced them to make blunders.

If we give them any space, these skilled players can keep passing forever. We set out to harass them today, and I think we succeeded."

Thomas Tuchel was reinstated to the sidelines after being sidelined for last week's altercation with Tottenham manager Antonio Conte. 

Before the game, Marsch told Sky Sports, "I don't think it's proper that he should be able to appeal [his red card], but whatever, he's on the bench — let's play the game.
