Premier League football resumed today with Chelsea kicking off the day’s action with a clash against Leeds united at Elland road.
The blues who were looking to extend their good form had traveled to play Marcelo Beilsa’s men with the hope of snatching an away victory.
The first half of the game saw both goalkeepers called into action with Edouard Mendy being the busiest of both goalies as he made crucial saves to keep the home side from breaking the deadlock.
Chelsea also had a few chances of their own although they did fail to make the most of their opportunities.
After the first interval, Chelsea resumed the second half as the better side as they create a few openings in the Leeds defense. The blues were however soon pegged back into their own half as Leeds took charge of possession in the middle of the park.
The game would however end in the same manner it began with neither side unable to find a way past the other on the afternoon as the match ended in a goalless stalemate.
Another notable game of the day also saw premier league top 4 chasers Everton lose to Relegation-threatened Burnley in what would surely come as a blow to Carlo Ancelotti’s men in their quest to finish in a champions qualification spot on the table.
Here’s how the EPL table looks like after Chelsea and Everton both failed to win
Manchester City who plays Fulham later today is 14 points clear of second-placed Manchester United while Leicester city is third.
Chelsea’s draw to Leeds united means they failed to move level on point with Leicester city while West ham united who play Manchester United on Sunday could also catch up with them on the log. Everton drops to 6th place while Tottenham, Liverpool, Aston Villa, and Arsenal all complete the top 10.
