Chelsea player ratings vs Leeds: Mason Mount full of menace with Reece James a huge threat all night

By James Robson

Chelsea got back to winning ways in comprehenseive fashion as they beat Leeds 3-0.

Mason Mount got the Blues off to the perfect start in the opening minutes, before Dan James was shown a straight red card for a terrible challenge on Mateo Kovacic - Chelsea will hope he recovers ahead of the FA Cup final.

Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku got on target after the break, as Thomas Tuchel’s side eased to a much-needed win.

James Robson was at Elland Road to rate the Chelsea players...

Edouard Mendy 6

Barely troubled all night. Well-shielded by those in front of him.

Trevoh Chalobah 7

Took his opportunities to carry the ball forward when he had chance. Controlled performance.

Andreas Christensen 7

Supported Chalobah well when Raphinha looked threatening. Also kept a close eye on Rodrigo to limit his influence.

Toni Rudiger 7

Never one to shy away from a physical battle, he was happy to get stuck as Leeds upped the aggression.

Reece James 9

A huge threat all night - powering down the wing to open Leeds up. Made Mount’s opener and a host more chances before playing a part in Pulisic’s goal too.

Jorginho 7

Amid the chaos of Leeds’ tackling, he kept his cool to dictate play in the middle of the pitch.

Mateo Kovacic 6

Was dominating midfield, which is probably why Dan James let his frustration get the better of him with a reckless challenge. Chelsea will be desperately hoping he can recover in time for Saturday’s Cup Final.

Marcos Alonso 6

Back in the team after his fall out with Tuchel at the weekend. Worked hard and pushed forward to provide width on the left.

Mason Mount 9

A brilliant performance, with a wonderful goal that put Chelsea on their way to victory and then a clever flick to set up Pulisic. Heavily involved in linking their attacks. A display full of menace.

Christian Pulisic 7

Got plenty on the ball as he drifted inside and dropped deep to pick up possession and link play. Brilliant finish to put Chelsea two up.

Romelu Lukaku 7

Felt like a game where he could really exploit a fragile Leeds rear-guard. Found the back of the net with a sweet finish, but was denied his goal by the offside flag. Eventually got his goal late on.

Subs:

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Kovacic, 30) 6

Slotted in seamlessly after Kovacic went off to help Chelsea dominate possession.

Hakim Ziyech (Pulisc, 78) 5

Stretched Leeds repeatedly after coming on as a late substitute.

Cesar Azpilicueta (James, 78) 5

Gave James a well-deserved rest.

Unused subs: Arrizabalaga, Thiago Silva, Werner, Barkley, Havertz, Sarr
