In the Premier League, Chelsea defeated Leeds United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge for their first league victory in six games. In the 53rd minute, Wesley Fofana converted a corner kick into the winning goal. Despite having chances, the Blues couldn't get their act together in the first half and went into the break goalless. Joao Felix struck the bar's underside. However, the hosts returned stronger from the vacation, and it only took nine minutes for Fofana to meet Ben Chilwell's corner and score.
Leeds, who have only won the league on the road once this season, could have done better. Their only real effort on target came from their goalkeeper IllanMeslier, who poked a header into the goal in the final minute. KepaArrizabalaga, his Chelsea counterpart, however, saved it. The London club remains in tenth place with 34 points from 25 games, while Leeds is 17th, just one point above the relegation zone.
