It was an embarrassing result at the Elland Road, as Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by Leeds United.

Chelsea were outran by Leeds and the home side pressed very hard to make sure Thomas Tuchel’s side were unable to settle into the game.

Chelsea are still being linked with some deals in the transfer market, as Chelsea are trying to sign a new striker and defender.

Thomas Tuchel has insisted that he won’t rush into panic buys because of the 3-0 defeat at Elland Road.

“The transfer period is still open and it gets later and later and we need to focus on what we have and what we can do,” Tuchel told reporters after the match at Leeds.

“Everything was going well. I still believe we can win with this team in Leeds. It is more our fault than anybody else’s credit,” Tuchel said.

“There’s no time to be shocked. For 20 minutes, we did it. But then we did stuff that cost us the dominance and chance to create more chances,” Tuchel added.

“But still, we did not invite pressure or create chances. We were not under pressure or in chaos.”
