Chelsea faced off against Leeds United at Elland Road earlier tonight as they hoped to earn all three points on the road. The Blues made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the fourth minute when Mason Mount scored with a good strike. Daniel James was sent off in the 24th minute which gave the West London giants a numerical advantage. Chelsea went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Christian Pulisic doubled his team’s lead in the 55th minute with a low shot before Romelu Lukaku found the back of the net as well late in the game. The Premier League contest finished 3-0 in favour of the Blues at Elland Road.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the match against the Whites.

GK: Edouard Mendy – 6.5/10

He didn’t have a save to make in the game and secured an easy clean sheet away from home.

CB: Trevoh Chalobah – 7.5/10

Chalobah got stuck in with some solid tackles and was strong in the air. He even played the ball quite well out from the back.

CB: Andreas Christensen – 7/10

The Danish centre-back did what was required of him at the back and was very accurate with his passing.

CB: Antonio Rudiger – 7/10

The German talent made two important clearances and performed well enough to secure the clean sheet.
