Leeds defeated Chelsea to advance to the Champions League

Under Jesse Marsch, Leeds defeated Chelsea 3-0 to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.
produced their best work under Jesse Marsch because they outperformed the guests in every way.
Without a designated No. 9, Chelsea were feeble,

and Kalidou Koulibaly will now miss a game.

Leeds Chelsea goals


surrounded by confusion,

Chelsea. pure mayhem They had five forwards on the field at one point,

some of whom appeared to be unclear of where they were supposed to be operating; the goalkeeper essentially threw one into his own net. Performances frequently reflect what occurs off the stage,

and this was unequivocal evidence.

On the other hand, Leeds. Well,

they are going through something. If anarchy was what brought down Chelsea,

then organised chaos gave Leeds more confidence.

It would be a grave understatement to refer to this as just their second home victory of the year,

which is already halfway to their total from the previous campaign.


Even though they defeated Chelsea for the first time since 2002,

fans crammed inside Elland Road are much more interested in the signals of what Jesse Marsch is doing. Marsch oversaw a summer renovation at another team as well,

but theirs was systematic in comparison to Chelsea’s.

Thomas Tuchel must be asking himself those questions, if not aloud,

given that he was already down and out before Jack Harrison’s goal with 18 seconds left. With over £180 million already spent, however haphazardly,

more money will undoubtedly be added,

sending expenditure records falling.

They need a striker, but do they really need Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang,

who is 33 years old? They need a centre back, but would it be wise to spend more than £80 million on either Wesley Fofana or Harry Maguire?

Perhaps in the future,

this window will make sense, but as I watch them lose to tactically competent competition, that time feels far distant.

Reuters, LEEDS, England, August 21 – Leeds United,

under by American coach Jesse Marsch,


kept up their impressive play to defeat Chelsea 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

The hosts raced into a 2-0 lead in a boisterous Elland Road environment with two goals in five minutes of the first half, leaving Chelsea,

finished with 10 men,

unable to handle the energy.

Brenden Aaronson of the United States

scored his first Premier League goal on 33 minutes as a result of an enormous mistake by the visiting goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Rodrigo then added a second goal with a header for his fourth of the year.

Leeds didn’t relent as they sealed the victory with a third-minute goal from Jack Harrison before Chelsea’s close-season acquisition Kalidou Koulibaly was dismissed late.

Leeds moved up to second place in the standings with seven points after winning their second of three games to open the new season,

while Chelsea’s first loss dropped them to 12th place with four.

Chelsea’s head coach Thomas Tuchel remarked,

“We gave up from a set piece and scored an own goal.” The loss had nothing to do with pressing, had nothing to do with covering less miles, and had nothing to do with Leeds’s playing strategy.

“We succeeded in being the superior team. But as the score reached 2-0,

we changed our demeanour from the previous game. I don’t see how we lost touch with Leeds’ fashion. We were prepared for it.

Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea’s head coach, remarked, “We gave up from a set piece and scored an own goal.” “The defeat had nothing to do with pushing,

nothing to do with logging less miles, and nothing to do with Leeds’s approach.

“We were able to work as a stronger team. But when the score reached 2-0,

our body language changed from what it had been during the previous game. I fail to see how we were connected to Leeds’ design. We anticipated its arrival.

Edouard Mendy, the Chelsea goalkeeper, made a terrible mess of intercepting a back ball from Thiago Silva, which led to the opening goal.

Brenden Aaronson, an American, dispossessed him, allowing him to stroll the ball in for his first Premier League goal.

The Senegal international botched up catching a back pass from Thiago Silva, and Aaronson then dispossessed him so that he could walk the ball in unimpeded.

The roof nearly came off Elland Road as in-form Brazilian forward Rodrigo headed home the second from Harrison’s free kick. The home supporters loved the start against one of their toughest rivals—hostility that dates back to the 1970s.

In the second half, Tuchel made substitutions, but the visitors never seemed to have a chance to enter the game—aside from Reece James’ drilled effort that Meslier deflected wide.

After his team defeated Chelsea 3-0 at home, Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch praised “relentless” Brenden Aaronson.
Leeds United defeated Chelsea 3-0 at Elland Road thanks to an outstanding effort.

Leeds were underdogs versus Thomas Tuchel’s team given their improbable record against the Premier League’s top European teams over the previous 12 months and the fact that they barely avoided relegation last season.

However, Jesse Marsch’s team has had a good start to the year and carried that enthusiasm into the match with Chelsea, putting up an incredible performance.
