With Leeds United bouncing back from the disappointing defeat to Crystal Palace with a good draw against Arsenal and then all three points against Everton, Saturday’s late fixture gave us a very tough test against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea started brightly and Frank Lampard had them up for this, but four minutes in and easily against the run of play, Patrick Bamford rocked his former club and gave us the 1-0 advantage.
The hosts remained on top, with better possession and chances in the first period and inevitably levelled the scores up just before the half hour mark, but we weren’t out of the game.
Second half was largely similar but we did get more of the ball without doing much with it.
Unfortunately, Chelsea took the advantage on the hour mark and made it a more comprehensive win in stoppage time.
Final score 3-1 but we move onto the next one as it was always going to be a learning curve.
