Chelsea went top of the Premier League as they hit back with style against Leeds and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa believed that N’Golo Kante played an important role in Chelsea’s victory over his side.

Leeds

had a fantastic start to the game and they scored in the first half but

Frank Lampard

’s men dominated their visitors in the second half with 3 goals from

Olivier Giroud

,

Kurt Zouma

, and

Christian Pulisic

.

Speaking in the post-match press,

Bielsa

talked about the importance of the opponent’s set-pieces in their victory.

“We failed to neutralize them from set-pieces and at the end it was important,” the manager said.

“It was difficult for us to stop them playing out from the back with their center-backs and N’Golo Kante.

“The difficulty for us was we didn’t manage to take the ball off them in their own half.”

Leeds Captain told after the game that he had been fouled before Zouma’s header.

Bielsa, however, said:

“I never question the refereeing decisions and this game was not decided by the referee. He did not decide the game.

“Always defeats are an opportunity to learn something.”

Leeds will take on West Ham next Friday at Elland Road.
