Twitter Reacts To Leeds Destroying Chelsea

Leeds did what nobody thought it could when Chelsea came to visit Elland Road on Sunday: utter humiliation was handed to the Blues. A dominate Leeds ran out 3-0 winners in an American masterclass thanks in big part to Brendon Aaronson’s first goal for Leeds.

Aaronson finally opened his account in England by doing exactly what he's been doing since he joined Jesse Marsch’s side. Aaronson sprinted to pressure Mendy as he collected a back pass, forcing him into a mistake in which the Medford Messi pounced, brought it goalwards and looked away as he passed it home. The Audacity.

Aaronson has been lauded since the season began for his phenomenal pressing and this goal should put the rest of the league on notice that Marsch Ball is fully on display at Elland Road.

Chelsea’s capitulation went from bad to worse as each additional goal went in, capped off by a late Koulibaly red card which will see him miss next week’s game against Leicester.

It was the culmination of everything Marsch had hoped for when he came to Leeds. Goosebumps came standard at full time as the Wisconsin native paraded around the ground greeting the fans and celebrating his side's sublime performance. Tyler Adams draped in the Stars and Stripes completed the look and in a post-match interview, Aaronson reminded the world that “Americans can play football too.”

After the first three weeks of the season, Leeds remains undefeated and sits in the Champions League places, perhaps a touch above where the club would have expected to be. Next week Leeds takes on Brighton away and will be hoping to extend its invincible run of form against the Seagulls.
