If you saw the result today from the boys at Elland Road you would have to say they were a team brimming with confidence. As they played in front of a passionate and rowdy crowd at Elland you could see the euphoria in the air as the slick, difficult tactics of American coach James Marsh gave tactician Thomas Tuchel fits.
The most exhilarating football on display with the fluidity of the game, not seen by many as we saw it today with new signings Tyler Adams from German giant RB Leipzig. Who seamlessly fits into the system with ease. On the other side of the pitch is a team clearly looking for answers; new boy Kalidou Koulibaly struggled immensely against the attacking threat of Brendan Aaronson; whose talent has shone so far in his young career for the likes of RB Salzburg and most recently the Philadelphia Union.
The dangerous thing about this young Leeds United team is the chemistry they seem to be building as a team. Very rarely has Tuchel struggled on the road let alone against a rival the boys who hail from West Yorkshire. Leeds United are off to an exciting start and for the first time since the Premiership was invented in 1980, the buzz around the team could not be clearer with the players responding the way they have.
Chelsea’s next move is to monitor the status of players of Jules Kounde, Frenkie De Jong, and possible target Denzel Dumfries. With a shambolic defense and a broken spirit Chelsea fans and players are looking for answers, and with Leicester next up won’t be feeling any sympathy.
