Leeds United vs. Chelsea score: Brenden Aaronson strike sets Jesse Marsch's men on path to stunning win

This might have been a classically English clash of north and south, the metropolitan elite set low by the working class, 

but it was America's finest who carried Leeds United to a remarkable 3-0 victory over Chelsea at Elland Road on Sunday.

US international Brenden Aaronson got this remarkable rout rolling in the first half, forcing an error from the increasingly erratic Edouard Mendy with the sort of intense pressing that Jesse Marsch wants to define his tenure in Yorkshire.

As Tyler Adams stamped his mark on midfield, MLS graduate Jack Harrison ripped through the Blues' defense, providing the second with a free kick planted onto Rodrigo's head before he bundled in the third in the second half.

Thomas Tuchel might have been banned for this game, but the one-match suspension he was handed for his dust up with Antonio Conte last week.

 By full time he might have wished he had stayed in London. 

Against one of their great rivals, Leeds did not lack for intensity from the outset. Within just two minutes the outstanding Adams had robbed Conor Gallagher of possession in midfield,

unleashing the flying quartet at the top of the pitch who asked so many questions of the visiting defense.
