Chelsea 3-1 Leeds: Giroud, Pulisic fired Chelsea top of EPL in front of home crowd


Chelsea picked up a 3-1 win over Leeds United in the Premier League earlier tonight.

The Blues did well to come back from 1-0 down to secure all three points for Frank Lampard.

Patrick Bamford gave Leeds United their lead four minutes into the game and Chelsea did their best to score the equaliser.

Timo Werner came agonisingly close the scoring the equaliser but he missed from point-blank range.

However the in-form Olivier Giroud scored the equaliser for the Blues on the 26th minute.

Chelsea kept pushing for the lead after that and Kurt Zouma headed the Blues into the lead after some excellent service from Mason Mount.

Christian Pulisic wrapped up the scoring for the Blues with the third goal of the game for Chelsea on the 93rd minute. 

The Blues are now unbeaten in nine league games and they have picked up 22 points from 11 matches in the Premier League.

Chelsea are on top of the Premier League standings right now and they will be hoping to stay there until the end of the season.

Meanwhile Leeds United are 13th in the Premier League table with 14 points and they will be hoping to improve further in the coming weeks.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have put on some impressive performances this season but they have not managed to grind out results. Leeds need to improve at the back in order to do well in the Premier League this season. They have been quite vulnerable defensively and it was once again evident against Chelsea tonight.
