Leeds United 0 – 3 Chelsea: Romelu Lukaku scores
Raphinha tries to break on the counter again, but three Chelsea defenders quickly close him down. He only has Klich up in support, but he can’t pick him out through the crowd.
Every Chelsea pass is being greeted by a cheer from the away fans as Mount plays a one-two with James to get into space. He’s off-balance when he takes the shot and he curls his shot high and wide of the top corner.
Leeds United 0 – 3 Chelsea: Pulisic’s goal
CLOSE! James lifts it over the top to Lukaku, who just spins away from Cooper to get to the edge of the D. He decides to have a go himself, but ends up dragging his shot wide of the near post.
Leeds United 0 – 3 Chelsea: Mount’s goal
Struijk goes long when he spots Raphinha making a driving run down the left, but Mendy comes off his line to collect it. The Brazilian does get a shove off James who has some fans asking for a penalty, but the referee waves it away.
Leeds are patiently trying to work it out from the back, but they’re sloppy in possession when they get out of their own half. Koch makes a good run down the right but gifts it to Alonso with a heavy first touch.
CHANCE! Rodrigo is running back to his goal when Jorginho slides in to nick it off. He lays it off to Pulisic, who tries to whip his shot into the near top corner, but he sends it flying wide.
Leeds are making their second change of the game now. Bate is going off, with Klich on to replace him.
PULISIC SCORES! Once again, it comes from Chelsea’s right as it’s worked infield and Mount just flicks it to Pulisic on the edge of the D. He takes it around Cooper to open up the space before drilling a low shot past Meslier into the bottom corner. 2-0 Chelsea! All goals above
HALF-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 0-1 CHELSEA.
The game has been brought to a temporary stop for the moment due to an incident in the crowd that has been brought to the referee’s attention.
Harrison’s game is coming to an early end, as he comes off with the medical team. Firpo comes on to replace him.
DAN JAMES IS SENT OFF! Leeds is down to 10 men for the second game in a row! It’s a really poor challenge from James, who lunges into the challenge on Kovacic and catches him on his calf with his studs. It’s right in front of the referee, who goes straight to his pocket to produce the red card. Things have gone from back to worse for the hosts here…
After struggling to get on the ball in the opening exchanges, Leeds are enjoying a good spell of possession. It’s all in front of Chelsea though, and they can’t get out of their own half.
Again, Chelsea looks to their right, and Leeds just can’t cope with them at the moment. Mount fizzes a dangerous low cross into the six-yard box, which is just out of Lukaku’s reach on the stretch. He was offside though, so it wouldn’t have counted anyway.
MOUNT SCORES! Chelsea works it well from left to right and James has acres of space down the right. He wrongfoots Struijk before laying it off to Mount and he hits the shot the first time. He wraps his foot around it, curling it past Meslier and into the top right corner. That is not the start Leeds wanted! 1-0 Chelsea!
