Leeds United have two games to save themselves from the drop after receiving another drubbing, this time at the hands of Chelsea.

The Whites gave away yet another early goal, taking the sting out of the Elland Road atmosphere after just four minutes. Mason Mount ran onto Reece James’ lay-off on the edge of the box and placed the ball in the top-right near corner to get Chelsea off to the ideal start.

Leeds went down to ten men for the second straight game after Dan James flew into Kovacic, getting to the ball first but following through on the Croatian with studs showing.

The home side held out until the 55th minute when Pulisic scored from just outside the box, with the ball nestling into the bottom left corner.

Lukaku finished the game off on 83 minutes when Llorente caught out with just Liam Cooper behind him in support. Lukaku received it in the penalty area and had to twist and turn before eventually smashing the ball into the net.

Another really tough night for Leeds ahead of the final two matches against Brighton and Brentford. With Dan James suspended and Raphinha and Harrison potentially nursing injuries, there calls for an even greater miracle for The Whites to remain in The Premier League.
