Leeds United 3-0 Chelsea: Aaronson, Rodrigo & Harrison CONDEMN Blues to first League defeat; Koulibaly Sees RED

Leeds United stunned West London outfit Chelsea at Elland Road, as they claimed a surprise 3-0 victory on Sunday afternoon.

The disaster for the Blues began when goalkeeper Edouard Mendy made a silly error as Brenden Aaronson fully capitalized to give Leeds United the lead.

The hosts doubled their advantage when Rodrigo glanced a header into the back of the net to register his fourth PL goal of the season.

The result was put beyond doubt when Jack Harrison scored in the 69th minute, but Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly received his marching orders following two yellow cards.

In the end, it was the hosts who claimed a deserved win while Chelsea suffered their first loss of the campaign.
