Elland Road.
Elland Road.

Meslier: Confident in his work and was decisive and assured. A good afternoon. 8

Ayling: Overcame a loose start which saw him cannon a clearance against Llorente, which hit the crossbar. Received treatment for a knee issue in second half. 7

Llorente: Decent in possession. Almost unwittingly conceded a crazy own goal. Made an important intervention as Chelsea pressed in second half. 8

Stuijk: Steady away, despite the occasional bit of sloppiness in possession. 7

Alioski: Had to stay alert with Pulisic posing issues down Leeds’s right. Got through plenty of work and a big-hearted player. Booked and then handed a final warning by Friend. 6

Phillips: Picked up an early knock and was not quite a full pelt. 6

Raphinha: One outrageous piece of skill to deceive Chilwell was a delight. Very committed in his defensive work against the Chelsea full-back. Moved to left in second half and went close to scoring. 8

Roberts: Went very close when he struck the bar in the first half. Moved up top in second half, with Rodrigo just behind. Posted threat. 8

Dallas: Worked hard in the middle against a good duo in Kante and Jorginho. 6

Harrison: Bright for spells and busy and kept coming back for more against Azpilicueta. 6

Bamford: Forced off after landing awkwardly following an aerial challenge with Rudiger. 5

Substitutes: Rodrigo (Bamford 35). Initially started up front, but then dropped behind in the second half. Replaced late on - a sub being subbed. 6

Costa (Harrison 64). Brought onto the right for Harrison as Bielsa freshened it up. 6

Klich (Rodrigo 79), 6.

Not used: Casilla, Koch, Poveda, Berardi, Shackleton, Jenkins.
