- Chelsea manager denies Leeds’s pressing was decisive factor
- Marsch says: ‘Our way of playing made them make mistakes’
An unhappy Thomas Tuchel branded Édouard Mendy’s error that allowed Leeds’s opening goal as “huge” and criticised the way his defence conceded a second from a free‑kick as Chelsea were beaten 3-0 at Elland Road.
Leeds’s first win in this fixture in 20 years was precipitated by Mendy’s decision not to clear a backpass. Instead the Chelsea goalkeeper tried to dribble past Brenden Aaronson and the No 7 stole the ball and scored.
