‘What a baller’ – Chelsea fans single out one player in first half against Leeds United

Chelsea have put themselves in pole position for a third-placed finish in the Premier League once again thanks to a first-half against Leeds that sees them head into the break 1-0 up.

Mason Mount opened the scoring for the Blues after just three minutes, but the main talking point of the opening 45 minutes was a red card for Dan James, as Leeds’ second in as many games reduced Jesse Marsch’s side to 10 men with plenty of football still to be played, while also ruling the Welshman out for the remainder of the season.

And, despite the controversy in what was a generally low-quality first-half, Chelsea fans reserved special praise for one particular man.
